About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Monday, October 11, 2021.

What better way to enjoy the City of Lakes in the summer than in your sailboat on one of Minneapolis picturesque lakes? The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board offers the use of hundreds of storage buoys through a seasonal permit process.


The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board annually issues permits for 380 buoys on Bde Maka Ska, Lake Harriet & Lake Nokomis. Enrollment opens for buoys beginning January 2, 2021 at 8am and ends April 2, 2021 at 4PM. Buoys are assigned through a lottery drawing. The lottery picks are based on a priority basis, giving city of Minneapolis residents who were buoy holders in the past year first priority to renew their permits. City residents who meet the deadline for returning their application will be considered before non-residents of the city.

The Minneapolis resident only Buoy Draw will take place the week of April 12th (date officially announced via email after registration). Due to the pandemic we may have to do the lottery internally this year and use preferences to place participants. If we are able to have an in-person drawing for Minneapolis residents. Resident priorities are as listed below.

1. Returning residents staying on the same lake

a. Harriet & Nokomis 6pm

b. Bde Maka Ska 7pm

2. Returning residents moving to a different lake

a. All Lakes 7:30pm

3. New residents

a. All Lakes 7:45pm

The non-Minneapolis resident Buoy Draw will take place the week of April 12th (date officially announced via email after registration).
