Excerpt: The Eagan Energy and Environment Advisory Commission (EEAC) recently kicked off its second year and established its goals for the next 12 months.

In 2011, the commission led the effort to have Eagan declared a Minnesota GreenStep City and Eagan now is poised to be one of the first cities in the state to complete all the required best practices for Step III recognition.

Dianne Miller, assistant city administrator and liaison to the commission, said Eagan is as far ahead as it is because the council has long made sustainability a goal for the city.

Miller also said that the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency GreenStep Coordinator, Phil Muessig, has “continually communicated to us that Eagan really is far ahead and we’re proud of that. That we are nearing Step III so soon is a reflection of the council’s goal.”

Muessig confirmed that Eagan is likely to be one of the first cities to complete Step III requirements.

“My sense continues to be that the GreenStep framework is focusing the work and investigation of the Energy and Environment Commission, and that their work is pushing ahead action faster than might have the been case if Eagan had not joined the program,” he said.
