The St. Louis Park Economic Development Authority (EDA) is committed to helping new and existing businesses thrive in St. Louis Park. It uses flexible business assistance and development programs within a strategic framework to encourage economic expansion that is complementary to the community.
Membership of the EDA is the same as the city council, although officers are different (i.e. the president of the EDA is not the mayor).
The EDA and city staff handle a variety of activities that promote economic development and redevelopment in the city, including:
- Business assistance
- Tax increment financing
- Redevelopment project assistance
- Public/private financial packages
- Real estate transactions
- Brownfield assistance
- Commercial rehabilitation/small business loans
- Other related activities
EDA meetings are held Monday evenings, as needed, when agenda items require consideration. Meetings are typically held at 6 p.m. at city hall, immediately prior to regularly scheduled city council meetings.
