About the Opportunity Site

Meeting in a Box

The purpose of Meeting in a Box is to generate conversation and feedback from the community about the Brooklyn Center Opportunity Site. Anyone can host or facilitate a meeting – from an informal group of friends to a regularly scheduled meeting of a community institution. The Meeting in a Box Guidebook outlines a meeting approach, but the host can change or adapt the approach as needed to best fit the needs of the group. Resource materials are provided to supplement the guidebook.

To ensure that a group’s feedback is incorporated into the master planning process for the Opportunity Site, please submit completed worksheets (in the guidebook) by March 31, 2020 to Meg Beekman, Community Development Director, by email at or connect with her by phone at 763-569-3305.

Printed copies of the Meeting in a Box materials are available! Please contact Meg Beekman.
