New! Code Review Task Force

Now accepting applications as we develop the new Code Review Task Force. This committee will research and advise on a full update to the City Code to help make it clear, understandable and effective to the community. Members will meet at least once a month for 12-24 months. The schedule will be discussed at the initial kickoff meeting. This is a great opportunity to share your perspective and make an impact on Burnsville.
