Citizen Forums on environment begin Tuesday in Minn.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A series of Citizens Forums will kick off this week to give Minnesotans a chance to weigh in on their priorities and visions for the environment.

The first two forums set for are Tuesday in Rochester and Bloomington. Other forums are set for:

  • Duluth,on Nov. 28
  • Worthington, on Dec. 10
  • St. Cloud, on Dec. 12
  • Moorhead, on Dec. 14

The Environmental Quality Board is convening the forums to assess Minnesota's progress toward clean air, water and energy. The board says it wants to engage citizens in constructive dialogue, identify environmental challenges, and define a vision for Minnesota's environmental future.

State leaders will gather in March for a one-day summit to discuss the feedback received at the six forums, and will use it to begin planning a blueprint for Minnesota's environmental and economic future.
