Heritage Preservation Board

The Heritage Preservation Board (HPB) advises the City Council, City Manager and other City boards and commissions on all matters relating to heritage resource preservation, protection and enhancement in the community.

Joyce Repya, Senior Planner

The Board safeguards the significant heritage properties of the City by identifying and nominating them for designation by the City Council as Edina Heritage Landmarks. In addition, the Board is responsible for developing and maintaining a comprehensive preservation plan; reviewing applications for City permits in relation to properties designated as Edina Heritage Landmarks; and encouraging the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration and reconstruction of significant heritage properties through public education.

The Heritage Preservation Board, provided for in City Ordinance Chapter 2, Division 5, typically meets at 7 p.m. the second Tuesday of most months (see schedule below). All meetings are open to the public and held at Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St.
