The City of Edina approved its first Climate Action Plan for the community in December, 2021. The plan helps those who live and work in Edina imagine and achieve a future where the earth and all who live on it thrive.

The plan includes 200 actions that can be taken in Edina to meet goals by 2030. The City’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goals target a reduction in City operations and communitywide emissions by 45 percent below 2019 levels and achieve net zero emissions by 2050, in line with the 2015 global Paris Agreement. Goals are arranged under the categories of Transportation & Land Use, Water & Wastewater, Buildings & Energy, Local Food & Agriculture, Green Space & Trees, Climate Health & Safety and Climate Economy.

    How will this effort coordinate with the development of new housing, teardown housing, new commercial developments, parking regulations on and off street, and promotion of rapid public transportation?

    Grimesguy asked over 1 year ago
    Some of these goals can be accomplished in larger development projects through the redevelopment process and Planned Use Development (PUD) zoning. Outside of a PUD the City can’t require regulations above and beyond the building and zoning codes. - City Planning Department.

    When is the city going to initiate organized trash hauling, so there aren’t 6 different trash haulers going down my street each week? I am on a dead end street, so I get twice as many trips by these huge, heavy trucks. Too much pollution, too much weight on the streets. If the city is serious about the environment they will initiate organized hauling.

    Sfox asked over 1 year ago
    The Transportation Commission is currently investigating the impacts of organized trash collection related to traffic congestion, carbon emissions and wear-and-tear on local streets. This work is intended to educate City Council as they consider potential changes to Edina's current system. Staff is also aware that residents have strong opinions regarding this issue, and recent polling shows 50% of residents support moving to organized collection. - Andrew Scipioni, City of Edina Transportation Planner
