Comprehensive Bluffs Management Plan


The West Side Bluffs Task Force developed a comprehensive Bluff Management Plan for the western segment of the Mississippi River bluff. This landmark plan was developed by neighborhood volunteers, Great River Greening, and the Parks and Recreation Division. It was finalized in 2003. Great River Greening’s Ecological Inventory and Vegetation Management Plan are the foundation of the Bluff Management Plan.The plan provides a framework for bluff maintenance and improvement based on a balance of ecological restoration, resource preservation, and recreational use.
