2018 Quality of Life Survey Results
Every two years, the City conducts a Quality of Life Survey to gather opinions from a random sample of Eden Prairie households. This provides City leaders with an overall snapshot of how residents feel about living in this community, which plays a major role in determining current and future needs. According to the latest survey results, Eden Prairie residents continue to enjoy a high quality of life and rate most City services and characteristics higher than local, regional and national benchmarks.
The detailed report and presentation of key findings from the 2018 Quality of Life Survey are now available at edenprairie.org/QualityofLife.

On Saturday, March 30 at 8:30 p.m., Eden Prairie's iconic water tower will go dark in observance of Earth Hour. Every year, millions of people around the world join the Earth Hour movement and switch off their lights for one hour to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. The City of Eden Prairie has participated in this initiative for the past few years. More information about Earth Hour can be found at worldwildlife.org.
