Edina’s Boards and Commissions ae seeking a diversity of perspective. Applications are due May 22. If you are a young conservative student, we feel you would bring a point of view that is particularly needed.
“It’s important to have student commissioners on our commissions,” said Community Engagement Coordinator MJ Lamon. “This opportunity is available to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. You don’t need to be a topic expert for the commission of interest; it’s an opportunity to learn about government and how it operates.”
You also do not need to be a green activist or a member of the Edina High School Environmental Club. Applicants do need to be entering Grades 10-12 for the 2019-2020 school year and be enrolled in Edina High School or live in Edina to participate. Appointments are yearlong and begin Sept. 1.
Two seats are available on each of the commissions.
• Arts & Culture Commission
• Community Health Commission
• Energy & Environment Commission
• Heritage Preservation Commission
• Human Rights & Relations Commission
• Parks & Recreation Commission
• Planning Commission
• Transportation Commission
