Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW)

An environmental assessment of the proposed Mississippi Dunes development project was completed on November 22, 2021. The City of Cottage Grove invites the public to review and comment on the Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW). The Project, located adjacent to and north of the Mississippi River corridor, is a new neighborhood in Cottage Grove that is planned for a mix of single-family detached homes, senior living opportunities, and parks. An extensive network of open space and trails is planned and will provide public access to the river and the surrounding community. 

The EAW, which documents the purpose and need for the project, along with the anticipated social, economic, and environmental impacts, is available for public comment beginning November 29, 2021. Written comments (via mail or email) will be accepted through the public review and comment period, which concludes December 29, 2021.

Written comments should be submitted to:
     City of Cottage Grove
     Attn: Emily Schmitz
     12800 Ravine Parkway South
     Cottage Grove MN, 55016

Electronic/email comments may be submitted to Emily Schmitz at eschmitz@cottagegrovemn.gov. 

For more information, please call the City at 651-458-2800.  A hard copy of the EAW is available for public review at City Hall: 12800 Ravine Parkway South, Cottage Grove, MN 55016
