For Residents

Prosperity in Edina has not happened by chance. Over the decades, the Edina community has grown from a small village into a renowned first-ring suburban community that is highly respected for its role in the regional economy while highly desirable because of its outstanding quality of life for residents. 

While the City pursued economic development goals for generations, the Economic Development Division was only created in 2012 when the first full-time economic development manager was hired.

The City’s Economic Development Division is responsible for working with developers, property owners, businesses and residents to generate new investment, enhance the tax base, create employment opportunities and ensure that desirable goods and services are readily available. This work is shaped by the goals outlined in Edina’s Comprehensive Plan and other laws and policies.
