Where is the so-called "density bonus" language for affordable housing? My understanding, after it was removed from the 70th & Cahill SAP, that it would be placed in the Land Use chapter. I can't find it. Thanks in advance for help. -City Talk Submissionabout 13 hours ago
The Planning Commission recommended that the density requirements in the 70th and Cahill Small Area Plan be moved to the land use chapter, and a ”density bonus” be considered from 50 units per acre to 75 units per acre subject to providing 20% affordable housing and meeting the goals and objectives and public improvement recommendations of the Small Area Plan. However, that language that was recommended by the Planning Commission was not adopted by the City Council when the Small Area Plan was approved.
For future development that is proposed to be on the medium to high end of the permitted densities in the land use chapter would be required to meet the City’s Affordable Housing Policy.

Chapter 5: Transportation, Page 54 Just a question, no change: What does “Not Endorsed by City Of Edina” refer to for the three areas crossed out refer to? -Comprehensive Plan Review Submission6 days ago
Hennepin County’s Transportation Plan mentions turning back these country roads to the City. City staff does not support owning and maintaining more roads when we are already struggling to maintain our current roads. We wanted our transportation plan to note the difference between the two agency plans.

Weber Woods is guided as low density residential. It was discussed to be a dog park and storm water facility--essentially stay open space. When did it change to low density residential? -Comprehensive Plan Review Submission uploaded by Emily Bodeker, Assistant City Planner6 days ago
Thank you for your question. The Weber Woods site was changed or re-guided to Low Density Residential in the 2008 Comprehensive Plan. The previous designation of this site in both the 1980 and 2000 Comprehensive Plan was Medium Density Residential.
