Sure, the holidays are upon us and it’s a bit hard to concentrate both at work and at home, but the world keeps spinning and stuff keeps happening – especially in Edina. Let’s take a look at a few bits & pieces from Edina.

Where are those Guys?

Wonder no more when the City of Edina will be out plowing the streets. All you need to do to find out is call the Snowplow Hotline.

The Public Works Department made the announcement, saying “It’s going to help the residents know exactly what’s going on as far as when we’re plowing, why we’re waiting to plow and more. We’re going to give them the info they need,”

So, jot down this number, 952-826-1628, or program it into your phone.

What’s “Friendly” to Some . . .

The City of Edina wants to be more biker and walker friendly and plans to install more sidewalks to prove it. They also say they hope the new sidewalks will attract Millennials.

Yes, as you guessed, there is an anti-sidewalk crowd. Long-time residents are complaining that their trying to “citify” Edina. And they aren’t alone. Minnesota NPR says that a few years ago a city survey of residents showed that 90 percent of them don’t want sidewalks in Edina.

 Finally

To answer a question that we get at least once a week: the most expensive home in Edina right now is listed at $3,995,000. It’s a 10,419 square foot estate on Parkwood Road that sits on almost two acres.

The home features a pond outside and inside it boasts mahogany walls in the library, a professional kitchen and a caterer’s pantry. You’ll also find a theater and a wine cellar.

The second question we get frequently is about the least expensive home on the Edina real estate market. That would be the 840 square foot condo on York Avenue that’s listed at $61,000. It features 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, it has new paint and carpet and a walk-in closet in the bedroom.

That’s it for this week.
