The City of Edina is partnering with the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District to study options for providing stormwater improvements at Bristol & Mavelle Park.
The study will include community engagement and outreach to better understand existing conditions, issues, and needs, and to help develop concept plans for consideration. It is part of the larger Lake Cornelia & Lake Edina Improvement Project.
The project goals are to:
- Improve the water quality of Lake Edina, and downstream water resources
- Reduce flood risk in the South Cornelia neighborhood
- Enhance natural resources, including improving pollinator habitat
- Keep a portion of the space open for passive recreation
- Consult residents in the process
