Mayors Letter

Dear Friend of the Community:

Edina has always been a community that has recognized the importance of the past while preparing itself for the future. From its incorporation in 1888 as a milling area on the banks of Minnehaha Creek, Edina has evolved to be a model among municipalities in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Providing an exceptional quality of life is important to us, and we are constantly at work to enhance it. We strongly believe in our vision statement – “Edina is the preeminent place for living, learning, raising families and doing business.” Whether you are new to the community or have been here for years, we value you as one of our customers, and are committed to providing you with excellent service delivered in a personal and caring manner. Our premier public services include a Fire Department with full-time paramedics/firefighters who provide full Advanced Life Support and fire prevention and protection, a nationally recognized Police Department, a Public Works Department (with second-to-none snowplowing capabilities) and a Park and Recreation Department that offers unparalleled facilities and programs for all ages.

The City of Edina’s 16 square miles of gently rolling land, dotted with small lakes and ponds and traversed by two meandering creeks, provides one of the most desirable environments for modern living. With excellent schools, superb parks and recreational opportunities and superior City services, I believe Edina truly is a wonderful place for living, learning, raising families and doing business.
