The Environment Committee typically meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 6pm, starting in November our meetings will begin at 7pm. 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.
At the September 6, 2023 D10 Environment committee meeting we welcomed John Notermann, Outreach Coordinator for Passive House, who shared about the details and benefits of Passive homes. Dave and Diane Crawford, who live in a passive house in Como, were also present to share their experience.
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.
