The NRP was established as a 20-year, $20 million per year program. In 1999, planning for the second decade (Phase II) of the program began. The planning process included several public meetings where Minneapolis residents gave their input with regard to how the NRP would operate in Phase II. In this section, you will find detailed information about the Phase II planning process including the different Phase II program operation proposals that were presented to the public by the NRP Policy Board.
