Projects to Invest in Minnesota Communities

Earlier this year, local governments submitted more than 200 requests for investment in their communities, totaling more than $1.3 billion, for consideration during the 2020 Legislative session. We want your input! Use the form below to comment on local government investment projects up for consideration in the 2020 capital budget bill. Let us know what projects you support and why. Governor Walz will review this information with Minnesota Management and Budget staff as they develop his capital budget proposal which will be submitted to the Legislature in January 2020. The public comment period will be open through Nov. 30. For short descriptions of the projects listed in alphabetical order, visit the project description page.
