Second term Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) Commissioner-At-Large Meg Forney is our oldest Minneapolis elected seated official. With over four decades of hands-on park engagement, she possesses abundant park institutional knowledge. With six new members elected to the nine member Minneapolis Park Board in 2018, she can place her perspective on the board’s governance in a historical context.
Meg was Mayor Don Fraser’s appointee to the Committee on Urban Environment (CUE) from 1991-2004, chairing the celebratory CUE Awards. Since 2003, she has advocated for Mississippi riverfront access in areas where there is the least access to our natural resources — north and northeast Minneapolis. She presently chairs the MPRB Planning Committee and is the MPRB appointee to the Minneapolis Parks Foundation.
Professionally, she was the Associate Director of Project for Pride and Living in the ’70’s and has been a Realtor for over 40 years.
