The GMRPTC is comprised of 13 Governor appointed members who represent the 80-counties outside the seven-county metropolitan area. There are two representatives for each of six districts and one at-large member.
The Commission, through a comprehensive, multi-step process, designates regionally significant parks and trails, enabling those facilities to apply for funding through the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. Currently there are 62 designated parks and trails in Greater Minnesota.
