Virtual Meetings During COVID-19 Outbreak

While in a local emergency under Minnesota Statute, section 12.37, the Golden Valley Environmental Commission will conduct its meetings virtually via Cisco Webex. Meeting instructions will be available here when the agenda is posted.

    Our top priority is maintaining the health and safety of our residents, staff, and the Golden Valley community. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, the COVID-19 page on the City website will have updated information about the status of closures, cancellations, and changes.
