Neighborhood associations are a horrible way to manage a city. Edina will find this out and be sorry they went down this road.

Does this add a layer to city government?

Edina is a fabulous city-do not ruin it with new contrived, unnecessary neighborhood names. This is a terrible thing to do to a city. It will hurt real estate values and divide the city-what a waste of time. Please leave well enough alone!!!

I think this is being promoted by insecure residents.

We have always called the area in the far NW corner the dead presidents, so I thought it rather funny that they are actually considering "Presidents". They are breaking two of the rules of nicknames, one they should be organic, something that emerges on its own, and second you never give yourself the nick name.

This is so people can say "I live in Edina...but not the crappy part!" without being overtly rude. If you do live in the crappy part...you're just going to keep saying "I live in Edina."
