Edina, Minn., June 24, 2021 – Meetings of the Edina City Council and its advisory boards and commissions will be held in person beginning in July.
For the next few months, all meetings will be held in the Council Chambers or Community Room of Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St. Since groups last met at Edina City Hall in March 2020, some upgrades have been made in response to CDC guidance to combat COVID-19. Among other things, total building air changes have increased by 20 percent and high-touch surface areas are sanitized more frequently.
The City offers residents several ways to interact with the City Council and its advisory boards and commissions. In July and August, residents may:
- Attend a meeting in person. Chairs will be spaced to provide distance between members of the public.
- Watch or listen to the meeting live. For City Council, Housing & Redevelopment Authority and Planning Commission, residents can watch on Edina TV (Comcast Channels 813 and 16) or Facebook Live. For other groups, residents can watch via YouTube. A phone number to call in to listen will be listed at the top of an agenda.
- Submit a Commission Correspondence Form at edinadocs.edinamn.gov/Forms/contact. As always, correspondence is emailed directly to commissioners.
- Submit public hearing testimony online at BetterTogetherEdina.org/public-hearings. In most cases, the City Council take action the meeting after a public hearing is held.
As they have during the pandemic, residents will be able to participate remotely in public hearings of the City Council, Housing & Redevelopment Authority and Planning Commission by calling in through Intercall. The number to call in will be listed at the top of an agenda.
Residents must attend a board or commission meeting in person to participate in Community Comment.
