Edina has used tax increment financing as a public finance tool to initiate community improvements since the 1980s. Large-scale mixed use and commercial projects, such as Centennial Lakes, Edinborough Park and 50th & France would not have been possible without the use of TIF.

Centennial Lakes TIF

The Centennial Lakes TIF District was established to encourage private-sector redevelopment of a former gravel pit. Edina’s bonding authority was used to hold the large (100+ acre_ parcel of land so that it could be developed in phases when market conditions were ready for new office space, new retail buildings, new medical office and new multi-family housing. This award-winning project also resulted in a new 25-acre park that is enjoyed by residents, employees and guests throughout the year.

Several wayfinding improvements were also constructed in the area.
