The Environment Committee typically meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 6pm. All D10 Como Park meetings are open to the public and have space for community members to bring topics for discussion. This month’s meeting will be held hybrid in person at the Como Streetcar Station (1224 Lexington) and via Zoom.
Our trial period begins in August and will go through the end of the year. In December, we’ll gather community and board feedback on the new meeting schedule. We’ll make any necessary adjustments to the schedule starting in January and announce those changes to the community via our newsletter.
The Environment Committee works to maintain, protect, and improve the environment of the District 10. This work has included instigating the creation of the Capitol Region Watershed District, initially to improve the water quality of Lake Como, assisting the St. Paul Parks and recreation department in Como Park and Como Lake Clean-Up events, including removing buckthorn within Como Park and creation and oversight of the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom. The committee acts as a liaison between the community, District 10, government and regulatory agencies, and private businesses to improve the environment.
