The Environmental Commission is a nine member citizen commission appointed by the City Council to review environmental issues including land alteration permits, Wetland Replacement Applications, landfill issues, to promote public awareness in understanding local environmental issues and other miscellaneous items that the council deems necessary for review. In 2016, the Airport Commission was consolidated with the Environment Commission.
The Environmental Commission meets as needed on the fourth Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at Inver Grove Heights City Hall, 8150 Barbara Avenue. The Planning Division reserves the right to cancel a meeting due to lack of agenda items. Meetings are televised:
LIVE: 4th Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. – Channel 15/859 HD
Replays: Saturday following the meeting at 3 p.m. & 9 p.m. – Channel 18/798 HD
Meetings are also live-streamed on Town Square Television. The public is encouraged to attend and is able to address the commission during any public hearings. This input becomes part of the public record and along with the commission's recommendation, will be used by the City Council to reach a decision.
