2024 LCCMR Strategic Planning

The LCCMR is currently working on a new strategic plan to help guide future funding from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF) for projects that protect, conserve, preserve, and enhance Minnesota’s air, water, land, fish, wildlife, and other natural resources. (Learn more about the LCCMR and the ENRTF.) The strategic planning process is a requirement of the LCCMR’s governing law.

Subcommittee on Strategic Planning

The LCCMR created a Subcommittee on Strategic Planning in late Fall 2023 to lead strategic planning efforts. See below for more information about the strategic planning process.

Subcommittee members include Rita Albrecht (subcommittee chair), Michael Reese (subcommittee vice-chair), Sen. Steve Green, Rep. Rick Hansen, Sen. Foung Hawj, Rep. Josh Heintzeman, Shona Langseth, Sen. Kelly Morrison (alternate Senate member), and Jeremy Peichel (alternate citizen member).

Strategic Planning Process

The process will include reviewing the LCCMR’s current strategic plan, reviewing 2019 strategic planning efforts, gathering and analyzing public input, and drafting a new strategic plan. The Subcommittee will be soliciting public input about the strategic plan through May of 2024. At Subcommittee meetings during the summer of 2024, this public input will be used to inform future ENRTF goals and strategies, potential changes to the proposal solicitation, review, and recommendation process, and other topics. The Subcommittee will draft a new strategic plan in the fall of 2024, which will be available for public review. The full Commission will review and consider the draft strategic plan in December of 2024.

Details about past and upcoming Subcommittee meetings, including meetings minutes and video from previous meetings, can be found on the LCCMR Meeting Schedule page.
