Student Commissioner Orientation
On Wednesday, Aug. 28, the City held an orientation for participants in the Students on Commissions program. These 22 students living in Eden Prairie will serve terms running from September through next May on the following commissions:
- Flying Cloud Airport Advisory
- Heritage Preservation
- Human Rights and Diversity
- Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources
We look forward to having these students in the program. Students who are juniors and seniors next school year are encouraged to apply when the process begins again at the end of the 2019-20 school year.
