How many meetings did the City have to update the Comprehensive Plan?

The most recent Comprehensive Update is an update of the 2008 plan update, and did not require a complete re-writing of the plan.

The process established by the Edina City Council included more than 180 meetings, including regular work sessions by the Planning Commission’s Comprehensive Plan Task Force, large-group public meetings, smaller community meetings in specific areas of the city (such as in the areas surrounding the elementary schools), listening sessions (small meetings held in response to invitations by community organizations or neighborhood groups), intergenerational dialogue with residents and other stakeholders, as well as ample opportunity for comment on the City’s website and through other means.
