The Commission 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 Commission 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 Illustrated Guidelines on Sustainability for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings, issued by the National Park Service Branch of Technical Preservation Services are part of the Secretary of the Interiors' Standards for Rehabilitation. These guidelines offer recommendations on how to make historic buildings more sustainable in a matter that will preserve their historic character. The City's preservation code Section 36, Article IX, as well as the Comprehensive Plan reference these standards; and the HPB relies on them for design review and compliance purposes. 


All meetings are open to the public.
