The Edina Grandview Green Project
Speaker: Katie Clark Sieben
Edina is in the early stages of this project which aims to develop a green lid (2-3 acre park) over Highway 100 near the Vernon and Eden bridges. This is an exciting project which is serving as a case study for the city, MnDOT, Hennepin County and Met Council and laying the groundwork for how we develop highway lids in Minnesota. We are also working to uncover what purpose the lid could serve in connecting neighborhoods, enhancing bicycle and pedestrian routes, increasing sustainability practices and enhancing the economic productivity of the land and airspace surrounding highway systems.
The Economic Development Committee’s purpose is to further the economic stability and growth of the city of Edina. This committee encourages and guides economic development in the city of Edina through advocacy and program development, support for existing businesses and recruitment of new businesses.
