"It's been a privilege to work with all of you and to witness the transformation of the organization," she said in the letter. "I like to think that when I leave next year, I will leave the MPRB in a better place than when I started."

Miller took over the helm of the Parks Board in November of 2010.

During her tenure, Miller helped acquire and develop riverfront parkland, opened the first natural swimming pool in North America at Webber Park, oversaw trail improvements around the Chain of Lakes and oversaw the reconstruction of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.

The city also credited Miller for establishing the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board as "the leading park and recreation agency in the country on racial and economic equity work."

With Miller's resignation, the MPRB Board of Commissioners will fill her position.
