Effective August 1, 2019, Minnesota cities have the authority to set speed limits on streets they control. The City is proposing to use this new authority to change speed limits on local streets. The current speed limit on most Edina streets is 30 miles per hour (mph).

About 40% of residents regularly express concern about speeding in their neighborhoods in the City's Quality of Life survey. The City is supportive of efforts to improve safety and mobility for all users and all modes of transportation. These goals are reflected in the Comprehensive Plan, the Living Streets Plan, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan and the Active Routes to School Plan. Lower speeds reduce the likelihood and severity of motor vehicle crashes, and setting lower speed limits prioritizes the safety of the most vulnerable users (pedestrians and cyclists).
