Minnetrista is Accepting Applications for their Parks Commission & Planning Commission

Are you interested in getting more involved in your community? If so, the City of Minnetrista is accepting applications for the volunteer positions of Parks Commissioner & Planning Commissioner.  There is currently two open seats on the Parks Commission and two open seats on the Planning Commission all for terms beginning in January of 2017.  Parks Commissioners serve a three year term and meet the second Tuesday of each month, while Planning Commissioners serve a four year term and meet the fourth Monday of each month.  Please consider getting involved and contributing to the governance of your community.

A Parks Commissioner works to ensure that the Parks, Trails and Open Space Plan is implemented by reviewing development applications on a case-by-case basis and the annual Parks Capital Improvement Plan.

A Planning Commissioner reviews all applications for development, variances, and other land use applications, while also reviewing proposed policy changes by making recommendations to the City Council for new or updated ordinances.

If you or someone you know are interested, please contact City Hall at 952-446-1660 or visit to obtain an application or to inquire about specific duties and responsibilities. Applications are due by Wednesday November 30, 2016 at 4:00 P.M.
