Re: Edina Crossroads Project - 7200, 7201, 7250 France

There had been a movement in Edina to bring in every neighborhood that is currently other school districts into the Edina SD. It was in headlines when parts of Parkwood Knolls tried detaching from Hopkins SD. Because the land values are so high in Parkwood Knolls Hopkins SD said no dice.

Re: Edina Crossroads Project - 7200, 7201, 7250 France

I have to image anything that comes to the Macy's Furniture store site will have a major reorientation to the Promenade for the residents. An elevated trail bridge here has some merit. On the 7200 and 7250 parcels, does that essentially make a single project between 72nd and Gallagher? If it does I ...
