Communities evolve and the best ones have a long-term plan to light the way. In local government, the ultimate torch is the Comprehensive Plan, which guides development and redevelopment and addresses changes likely to occur due to various social and market forces.
The Comprehensive Plan is meant to provide Edina with an outline for future development. The Metropolitan Council requires every city in the seven-county metro area to have such a plan and State law requires that it be updated every 10 years. Edina’s Plan includes chapters on land use, transportation, wastewater, water supply, storm water management, housing and parks and recreation.
