Metro Conservation Districts
The Metro Conservation Districts (MCD) is a joint powers governmental entity originally comprised of seven Soil and Water Conservation Districts in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington. Originally formed in 1977 as a formal working cooperative for activities under Section 208 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, the MCD has evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of its members. The overall goal remains the same: to coordinate efforts and assist with the operations of the member districts and with projects for the mutual benefit of the members. In 2009, the Joint Powers Agreement establishing the MCD amended to include four additional districts, including Chisago, Isanti, Sherburne and Wright. In 2014 the MN legislature transferred the duties of Hennepin SWCD to Hennepin County. Each of the eleven members has a primary and alternate representative on the MCD board. Each member district has one vote. Member districts may choose to have staff attend MCD meetings as non-voting participants.
NEXT REGULAR MEETING: The next regular meeting of the MCD Board is May 25, 2016 starting at 4:00 PM at 6120 Earle Brown Drive, Brooklyn Center 5th Floor Conference Room.
