For years now we have been stuttering over what to call that Eastern-most portion of Edina: between Xerxes and France Avenue from 56th Street to Hwy 62. We have looked up the original sub-division names: Bel-Air, Town Realty Edina Terrace, Harriet Manor, Harriet Lawn, Brookline, Erickson Addition. Not sure if any of those really describe or define the neighborhood. This identity crisis has not gone unnoticed by the powers that be. The city of Edina has just formed an Edina Neighborhood Steering Committee to name all of its communities, in an effort to build recognizable neighborhood associations. (Our very own Bob Pacieznik was appointed as one of the eleven members.) At the end fo a year, all of Edina neighborhoods will have names and its residents the opportunity to join a form and join a neighborhood association. We are excited!
