The City Council values the involvement of Eden Prairie residents and has established a number of City Commissions which provide opportunities for participation. To serve on a Commission, applicants must live in Eden Prairie.
Commission terms are typically three years, and the City Council staggers term end dates to ensure continuity. Terms begin April 1 and end March 31 each year. No Commission member may be appointed to more than two full consecutive terms, except by unanimous vote of the Council.
Task forces are assembled and appointed by the City Council on an “as-needed” basis when an issue needs to be further researched and reviewed. Upon completion, a final task force report and recommendations are provided to the City Council.
