Public Hearings

Public hearings are one way the City collects feedback on specific decisions.  Public hearings are usually conducted by the City Council or Planning Commission. The goal of a public hearing is to make sure all perspectives have been surfaced and considered. 

How do I submit a comment for a public hearing?

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is currently conducting public hearings virtually. There are three ways for you to submit comments for a public hearing. Regardless of the methods used, you will be asked to provide your name, address, and comment. You only need to participate using one method. All comments are valued and considered regardless of the way they are submitted.  

1) Phone in to the live meeting to provide live testimony 

You can call into the meeting using the phone number and unique meeting ID located on the top of each meeting agenda. At the meeting, the Mayor will ask for public testimony after City staff and / or project applicants have made their presentations.

2) Complete an online public hearing comment form 

The Public Hearing Comment Form and additional information on the project can be located on this site. See links below to take you to the desired public hearing.

3) Leave a voicemail at 952-826-0377 

                You can leave a voicemail with your name, address and comment.

If you have any difficulties with participating, contact Community Engagement Coordinator, MJ Lamon at MLamon@EdinaMN.gov or 952-826-0360.

Where can I view Public Hearing Comments submitted?

Phone-in testimony will be live streamed on Edina TV and Facebook during the public hearing, recorded and posted on the City Website to be viewed.

Comments received are published in the City Council (or Planning Commission) meeting agenda and packet for the public meetings where the live public hearing and related decision occurs. Meeting “packets” are documents prepared by staff to provide the City Council or Commission with information they need for specific agenda items. These documents are available in print, published on the City's website and maintained in a permanent electronic record.

Where can I find the decision?

Each Public Hearing has a schedule City Council meeting date where Council will make a decision. You can watch the meeting here.
