GreenStep Cities Memo to City of North St. Paul.

Frost, John.

LAW 7012: Land Use, Energy and Environment Clinic,fall 2013/spring 2014. (Instructor Jean Coleman, Law School)

As part of the Resilient Communities Project, the Environmental Sustainability Clinic at the University of Minnesota Law School agreed to assist the City of North Saint Paul with its participation in the Minnesota GreenStep Cities program. The goal of this collaboration is achieving recognition for North Saint Paul as a Step 3 GreenStep City. In pursuit of this goal, the Clinic researched the Minnesota GreenStep Cities program as a whole, analyzed the status of North Saint Paul within the program, and developed recommendations for North Saint Paul so that Step 3 recognition can be achieved.

This policy statement articulates the analysis and recommendations developed by the Clinic. It serves as a potential roadmap to Step 3 recognition through active policy development, implementation, and the documentation of existing City policies not yet reported to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, which administers the GreenStep Cities program.
