Issues in the Minnesota Lakes Region
With an office and staff in Brainerd, Envision Minnesota works to proactively influence public and policy debates on related issues in the North Central Lakes Region. We accomplish this by participating in several partnerships, collaborating with local units of government and working to engage citizens in the Lakes Region of Minnesota.
The Conservation Design Scorecard is ready for use
The Conservation Design Scorecard, a project of Envision Minnesota, can raise the bar for future Conservation Design developments that are put on the ground. This scorecard is intended to be used by planners, planning commissions, local officials, developers, conservation professionals, and citizens – the very people who helped create it. Find out more about the Conservation Design Scorecard.
