Edina, Minn., Aug. 24, 2021 – City meetings will largely be conducted as they were before the COVID-19 pandemic, beginning next month.
Under State law, all City Council Members and members of boards and commissions must attend meetings in person after Aug. 31 since the state of emergency has ended in Minnesota.
In order to provide more space between people, though, the Arts & Culture Commission, Community Health Commission, Energy & Environment Commission, Human Rights & Relations Commission, Heritage Preservation Commission and Transportation Commission will meet at the Public Works & Park Maintenance Facility, 7450 Metro Blvd., most months through the end of the year. The Parks & Recreation Commission will meet at Braemar Golf Course, 6364 John Harris Drive, through 2021. The Energy & Environment Commission will meet at Braemar Golf Course in November.
Meetings of the City Council, Housing & Redevelopment Authority and Planning Commission will continue to be held at Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St., and broadcast on Edina TV and online. The City will continue to use a service to allow residents to provide testimony via telephone without coming to City Hall. Members of the public can participate by calling 800-374-0221 with a unique Conference ID found at the top of a meeting agenda. Press *1 on your telephone keypad when you are ready to speak during a specific agenda item. An operator will mute your line and place you into a queue until it is your turn to speak. After the public hearings, the call will end.
Residents may also provide testimony in any public hearing at BetterTogetherEdina.org or by leaving a voicemail at 952-826-0377. There is no need to provide testimony in more than one way.
Masks are strongly encouraged for those attending City meetings and events.
