In Person Public Meetings Return July 7th, 2021.

Due to expiration of the State of Emergency on July 1 by Gov. Tim Walz, the city is now complying with the Open Meeting Law in which in-person public meetings will resume effective with the July 7 Planning Commission meeting. The public will be allowed to participate in the meetings in-person or via Zoom.

This means the public is invited back to City Hall, if they feel comfortable doing so, to attend and/or give public comment.

Remote Option Still Available

A remote option will still be available for Planning Commission and City Council Meetings. The Zoom details can be found in the same location as before within the calendar posting or meeting agenda on Wayzata.org.

The City is working to implement and install upgrades to the Council Chambers to create a permanent and smooth hybrid meeting option. In the meantime, please note that the remote option in place is temporary and will be improved greatly when the new equipment is installed.

Contact city@wayzata.org with any questions or concerns.
