The City of Eden Prairie has always been mindful of the environment and natural resources the community enjoys.

The City’s efforts to reduce its environmental footprint began in earnest after the inaugural Sundance Summit’s Mayors’ Gathering on Climate Protection in 2005. Mayor Nancy Tyra-Lukens participated in the summit and signed the Mayor’s Commitment to Action [PDF], which led to the formation of the City’s Conservation Commission and the launch of the 20-40-15 initiative.

Since then, the City has worked toward meeting its energy-efficiency goals and signed on to participate in the Minnesota GreenStep Cities program. In 2011, Mayor Tyra-Lukens was awarded an honorable mention for The U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Awards, and in 2012, Eden Prairie won the “Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation” for the Midwest region, versus other cities in the 30,001–100,000 population category.
