New Discussion On ‘Speak Up, Edina!’

Edina, Minn., Jan. 7, 2015 – The City’s next online discussion is now available at The discussion, which focuses on outdoor ice rinks, is available until Feb. 8.

The City operates 12 seasonal outdoor ice skating rinks at Arden, Cornelia School, Countryside, Creek Valley, Highlands, Lewis, Normandale, Pamela, Strachauer, Todd, Walnut Ridge and Weber parks. All locations have warming houses, general skating rinks and hockey rinks. The rinks are open from mid- to late-December until February or early March, depending on weather conditions, and are groomed daily.

In the discussion, the City asks whether residents use the seasonal outdoor ice rinks in neighborhood parks, what they think of the quality of rink setup and maintenance throughout the winter, what their favorite ice activity is and whether there should be more structured programming on the rinks. Feedback from this discussion will be compiled and presented to the City Council Feb. 16.

Last month, the City gathered feedback on snow plowing and winter parking restrictions. Questions asked include whether the parking restrictions have an effect on their parking decisions; whether a different restriction system, such as even-odd parking or snow emergencies, would be preferred; and if residents think the penalty for a parking restriction violation is fair. Feedback from this discussion will be compiled and presented to the City Council Jan. 20.
