Permit #20-455: St. Stephen's Episcopal Church retaining wall replacement

The MCWD Board of Managers is considering MCWD permit application #20-455 as described below and is scheduled to take action on the permit on a Zoom conference meeting on January 14th.  MCWD Rules require notice to all property owners within 600' of the proposed permitted area as a courtesy, in the event there are any questions or concerns.


20-455: St. Stephens Episcopal Church is proposing to replace the existing retaining wall adjacent to Minnehaha Creek located at 4439 West 50th Street in the City of Edina. MCWD regulates the project under our Erosion Control, Streambank Stabilization, and Floodplain Alteration rules.  The project will not result in loss of floodplain storage nor increase the 100-year floodstage. Additional information on the project can be found on the MCWD website at on January 11th, when log-in instructions are posted along with the Meeting Agenda, and other supplemental materials as needed. 


                   If you would like to review the application materials in detail, please contact Tom Dietrich at or 952-473-2855 to make an appointment for a virtual meeting.
