The Major Center Area (MCA) is an area that encompasses Eden Prairie Center, extends to Valley View Road on the north and includes the I-494, Highway 5 and Highway 212 interchange area, as well as the area around Prairie Center Drive.
The City of Eden Prairie commissioned a Major Center Area (MCA) study to examine and plan for the future of the MCA. The study was approved by the City Council in January 2006 as an advisory tool for future redevelopment and public improvements in the Prairie Center Drive/Valley View “ring road” area.
In response to public input, the study recommended developing a compact, walkable "Town Center" in the Singletree Lane/Highway 212 area.
In order to implement the Town Center vision, the study recommended developing detailed design guidelines for future buildings, parking ramps, streetscape amenities, pedestrian/bicycle connections and other public spaces.
