Edina's 'monster homes'
Major changes in neighborhoods are tricky. Sometimes it's progress. Sometimes it's an eyesore. Depends on your point-of-view. A lot of the people on Oaklawn Avenue in Edina are angry that a new 5,400-square-foot "monster house" is being built on their street. (See Star Tribune story and watch the YouTube video, posted above.) Earlier this week, it appeared that the Edina City Council was ready to place a moratorium on the construction of these very large houses in neighborhoods populated by midsize, 20th century homes. But at its December 4 meeting, the Star Tribune reported that the council choose not to act on the issue.
