What is the Economic Development Authority (EDA)?

In 1987, the City of Chaska established its Economic Development Authority (EDA) to help address the city's need to proactively deal with economic development, housing and redevelopment issues within the city. The EDA was an offspring of the city's Housing and Redevelopment Authority, who until that time had served as the entity ensuring that there was not a shortage of safe and decent housing within the city. Key blighted properties were redeveloped into a use that would serve the entire public's best interest. The EDA took the responsibilities of the City's Housing and Redevelopment Authority, and added to their duties helping the development of new businesses and properties throughout the city.
