EDA History

In December 1993, the Champlin City Council adopted an enabling resolution establishing an Economic Development Authority (EDA) under Minnesota Statutes Section 469. The Champlin EDA is designed to preserve and create jobs, enhance the City’s tax base, promote the general welfare of the people of the City and assume primary responsibility for development activities within the City.

The EDA carries out it’s work through the Community Development Department. You can view development projects on the Community Development page.
