GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's Framework for Action to Address the Environmental Impacts of Growth and Development

Title:
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's Framework for Action to Address the Environmental Impacts of Growth and Development

Abstract:
How can the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) help Minnesotans make growth and development choices that are more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable? This was the question behind a recent effort by the MPCA to evaluate its programs and activities looking for the best "leverage points" to help improve Minnesota's growth and development patterns. The effort, involving many hours of research and in-depth discussions among environmental professionals, resulted in this Framework for Action. The framework provides MPCA staff and managers with tangible guidance for adapting current work to support smarter growth and development decisions. It also incorporates principles of today's "second wave" of environmental protection that help MPCA define its perspectives and work activities more holistically (PDF format; Length: 21 pages). To receive a paper copy of this document or if you have questions about the MPCA's involvement in development issues, contact Bill Dunn at the MPCA, 651-282-2663.
