Edina, Minn., Jan. 27, 2023 – Residents, business people and anyone who is interested in helping collaborate on the future of Edina’s Cahill District are invited to a workshop 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, at the Edina Public Works & Park Maintenance Facility, 7450 Metro Blvd.
Located in the southern portion of the city, the Cahill District is bounded by West 70th Street (north), Cahill Road (west), Minnesota Highway 100 (east), and the Bloomington city line (south). The City completed a Small Area Plan for the 70th & Cahill Neighborhood Node in 2019; that plan called for an effort to study the entire Cahill District to determine how best to improve the area. Work has been under way since fall 2021 to draft the Cahill District Plan to guide development.
“The Working Group has created several potential development scenarios for the District, and we are excited to get feedback from the community about which direction is preferred,” said David Alkire, Planning Commission vice-chair and chair of the Cahill District planning effort.
At the workshop, participants will review and respond to draft plans for the future of Edina’s Cahill District. Topics will include the overall vision for the district, concepts for potential redevelopment, plans for a renewed and expanded public realm, and how Edina should measure and track progress. This workshop will build on the feedback received from prior workshops and other forms of engagement.
