JENKINS — The City of Jenkins Energy and Environment Plan is now available to review and open for public comment at . The plan prioritizes Energy and Environment related initiatives in the community for the next five years and was completed with community survey input. As result of the hearing from communities throughout Crow Wing, Cass, Morrison, Todd and Wadena Counties, the Region Five Development Commission (R5DC) launched the Energy & Environment (EE) planning and project implementation initiative in 2020.

Once the community-driven blueprint is in place, an investment of at least $10,000.00 will be utilized for project implementation in the city. A local planning team, Region Five Development Commission, the Morgan Family Foundation, Sourcewell, and the USDA Rural Community Development Initiative were part of funding and/or creating this plan.
