Information for Residents

Welcome! We are pleased you have chosen Edina in which to make your home and hope you will enjoy our community for many years.

We are very proud of our City and its schools, parks and businesses. We are proudest, though, of our community spirit – the willingness of residents to participate in government and volunteer to make the community special. Although Edina is a flourishing city in a physical sense, our hope is to remain a “village” in a social sense, where neighborliness and civic pride are hallmarks.

Edina Snow Parking Regulations
Many Minnesotans have made the mistake of parking their cars or trucks on the street during a snowstorm, only to find later that their vehicles have been "buried" or "plowed in." Seeing a parking ticket on your windshield would only add to the frustration. You can avoid a citation or tow by following these rules:

No vehicle may be parked on a City street, highway or alley under the following conditions:

  • When 1.5 inches or more of snow has fallen, until it has been plowed to the curbline.

  • For six hours after the snowfall stops, unless traffic signs specifically allow you to do so or if you are engaged in certain job-related activities as described in the City Code.

  • From 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. Nov. 1 to March 31.

It is extremely important for residents to keep their vehicles off roadways during these times. Edina's Public Works Department has a reputation for providing top-notch snow removing services, but staff members need your help. Cars parked on the street make it difficult for snowplow operators to maneuver and also prevent the street from being thoroughly plowed. By parking in driveways or lots, you will avoid parking tickets and the expense and inconvenience associated with towing.
