Minnesota Legislature creates Coon Rapids Regional Dam Commission

The 2010 Minnesota Legislature created a Commission to study options and make recommendations for the future of the Coon Rapids Dam, which spans the Mississippi River between Brooklyn Park and Coon Rapids, Minnesota.

The Legislation directs the Commission to consider the Coon Rapids Dam’s suitable public uses, governance, operation, maintenance and financing. The Commission will consider economic, environmental, ecological, and other pertinent factors, and the Commission will present its analysis and recommendations to the Legislature and the Governor by March 1, 2011.

The Commission includes representatives from the Legislature; federal and state agencies that have jurisdiction over waterways; the Metropolitan Council; Three Rivers Park District; Hennepin and Anoka counties; and representatives from each of the cities adjacent to the Dam and the recreational pool.
