Minutes/Edina City Council/ianuary 16,2007 <br /> Engineer Houle reported the applicant; Kurt Kruemenauer of 5108 Green Farms Road <br /> requested the proposed vacation of the existing roadway, Apple Lane. He explained the <br /> roadway was constructed with the Parkwood Knolls 22nd Addition which had included a <br /> connection from Kelsey Terrace to Green Farms Road. Mr. Houle said in 2001 the connection <br /> was eliminated from the master plan. <br /> Mr. Houle added the resident at 5112 Green Farms Road had no objections to the vacation. <br /> He added if the vacation were approved by the Council, Public Works staff would restore the <br /> roadway to sod during the summer while working with the 5112 property owner to <br /> accommodate their driveway. Mr. Houle added if the right of way were vacated the County <br /> would determine who had ownership of the property. Attorney Gilligan added the County <br /> had the records of the ownership underlying the right of way. <br /> The Council briefly discussed the requested vacation. Their questions included who would <br /> bear the cost of removal of the black top, the determination of ownership for the property <br /> and whether or not any impediments to the requested vacation existed. Mr. Houle explained <br /> the City would remove the blacktop and recycle it as well as replace the sod during slow <br /> times in the summer. <br /> Kurt Kruemenauer, 5108 Green Farms Road, explained the reasons he was requesting the <br /> vacation. He explained the roadway was not lit and had become quite a "night" spot for <br /> young people. Mr. Kruemenauer said it was his intention to landscape the area. <br /> Anthony Lawrence, 5112 Green Farms Road, said he supported the requested vacation. <br /> Member Swenson made a motion to close the public hearing, seconded by Member <br /> Masica. <br /> Ayes: Bennett, Masica,Swenson, Hovland <br /> Motion carried. <br /> Member Swenson made a motion introducing Resolution No. 2007-18 and moving its <br /> adoption vacating the public right of way for Apple Road while retaining the underlying <br /> utility easements.
