“Ms. Miller has the unique skills needed for the position of Superintendent and to help direct staff as we make needed changes moving forward,” said John Erwin, President of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. “She has extensive experience in park and recreation leadership, budget management, community development, planning, environmental stewardship and public/private partnerships.”
Miller was most recently the director and chief executive officer for the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority, Michigan. Prior to that, she served almost 25 years at the City of Ann Arbor, MI. As community services area administrator, she provided leadership and policy direction for the City’s parks and recreation system that includes over 2,087 acres of parkland. As a manager for the Department of Parks and Recreation, her responsibilities included park and recreation services, park planning activities, natural areas preservation, and recreation facilities and related programs and services.
Commissioners thanked all of the candidates who applied and were interviewed as finalists. Commissioner Annie Young also thanked Superintendent David Fisher for stepping in during this critical time of transition.
