Pedestrian & Cyclist Safety Fund

The PACS fund was approved by City Council in 2012 for improvements and maintenance of Edina's non-motorized transportation network. This network includes sidewalks, trails, bikeways, pedestrian crossings and related signage and pavement markings.

Revenue for the PACS fund is generated by a franchise fee ordinance that imposes a fee of $1.45 per month on residential customers of Xcel Energy and $1.45 per month on residential customers of CenterPoint Energy. There are higher franchise fees for commercial customers of both utilities.

Bike Rack Program

Through the PACS Fund, the City offers bike racks at half price to organizations throughout
the community to encourage bicycling for commuting, errands and other short trips. Bike racks provide added convenience for residents and visitors, increase accessibility of buildings and encourage physical activity. This program is open to:

  • Businesses
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Multi-family residential complexes
The City will install the racks and pay for half the cost of purchase and installation. The property owner is responsible for any new concrete and site work required prior to installation, as well as future maintenance of the installed racks. Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact the Transportation Planner at 952-826-0440 for more information.
