At Wednesday’s meeting, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) commissioners voted to approve the nomination of Alfred Bangoura from Charlotte, North Carolina, as the next superintendent of the nationally acclaimed park system and authorized Board President Brad Bourn to negotiate a contract. Approval of Bangoura’s contract is tentatively scheduled for the December 19 board meeting. Park Board commissioners hope to have Bangoura aboard as soon as possible.
