Commissioner Training and Education

In 2015 the City of Stillwater, in conjunction with the Cities of Eden Prairie and
Mankato, received a Heritage Partnership Program grant from the Minnesota Historical
Society to retain professional services and develop a training curriculum for statewide
distribution. The focus of the grant was to develop training materials that would satisfy
the educational needs of Heritage Preservation Commissions across the State of
Minnesota. The primary goal of this program is to introduce participants to basic
preservation related principles and terminology through an online program and
accompanying manual. In addition to group learning opportunities, individuals can
take the online course as a stand-alone endeavor at any time throughout the year,
making educational opportunities available on an ongoing basis and accessible to other
stakeholders such as elected officials, Main Street managers, municipal attorneys, etc.
