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 update builds off of Vision Edina and has included the completion of several small area plans.

    The Plan includes chapters on land use and community design; housing; transportation; parks, open space and natural resources; water resources; energy and environment; economic competitiveness and economic development; human rights and relations; community health; heritage preservation; and arts and culture. It also includes a plan for implementation and appendixes on the small area plans.

    The City's Planning Commission served as the Comprehensive Plan Task Force, leading the efforts to update and make a final plan recommendation to City Council, in addition to completing five small area plans, which will be included in the final plan. Visit the website for more information on the small area plans.

    The City has been working on the Comprehensive Plan update since 2017. Over the past many months, advisory commissions partnered with city staff to update, rewrite and write chapters/content for the 2018 Comprehensive Plan. The plan is in draft form and ready for a public review. The 30-day public review will start March 7 and end on April 8.
