Public Engagement Advisory Task Force

Active dates:2020 -
Established by the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board

The Public Engagement Task Force will create space for members of the public to share experiences about what the Capitol means to them and feedback on the monuments, memorials, and works of art on the Capitol grounds and in the interior of the State Capitol. The Task Force will also address how the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board (CAAPB) can ensure proactive and meaningful public engagement in its decisions.


In 2020 the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board (CAAPB) began conducting a series of meetings focused on establishing a proactive, transparent, and public process to evaluate the monuments and artwork displayed on the Capitol Grounds. Aside from Minn. Stat. 15B.08, subd. 3, there is no formal CAAPB process that addresses the potential removal of monuments and artwork from the Capitol grounds. The Public Engagement Advisory Task Force, along with the Decision Process Advisory Task Force, were convened to help discuss and establish that process.
