Minutes/Edina City Council/November 5,2007 <br /> Planning Director Teague noted the City has received a request for a significant mixed use <br /> development proposal in the Pentagon Park Area at 77th Street and Highway 100. The amount of <br /> development expected triggered the need for an environmental review. The City of Edina chose the <br /> Alternative Urban Areawide Review (AUAR) as the method of study. He reported that study had <br /> been completed. <br /> Mr. Teague said by adopting the Final AUAR, any redevelopment that would be proposed within the <br /> study area would need to meet the mitigation measures outlined within the document. If the density <br /> of a development proposal exceeded the densities that were analyzed, the AUAR would need to be <br /> updated. State law requires that the AUAR be updated every five years until redevelopment within <br /> the study area has been approved. He added adopting the AUAR would not authorize any <br /> redevelopment project, nor would it replace or overrule any of the normal Comprehensive Plan or <br /> Zoning Ordinance required hearings, project review, or other city approvals. It simply was a vehicle <br /> for identifying and evaluating any and all potential project environmental impacts prior to an official <br /> development application. <br /> Mr. Teague introduced Andrea Moffatt of WSB & Associates, Consultants for the AUAR who gave a <br /> presentation on the Gateway AUAR. She reminded the Council that the Gateway area was the 135 <br /> acres between TH100, the Fred Richards Golf Course, France Avenue and the border with <br /> Bloomington. Ms. Moffatt said the purpose of the AUAR was to identify environmental impacts <br /> associated with development within the study area. Ms. Moffatt noted four scenarios had been <br /> reviewed as previously described to the Council. She reminded that at the October 2, 2007, Council <br /> meeting, the City Council has authorized the final ten day comment period on the AUAR. That <br /> period was closed and the comments had been incorporated into the Final AUAR before the Council. <br /> The Council discussed their questions and concerns with city staff and Consultants Andrea Moffatt <br /> and Chuck Rickert of WSB & Associates. These included: phasing of the mitigation schedule,the City <br /> would decide who will pay for any updates to the AUAR, the AUAR would need to be updated if <br /> development was not accomplished within five years, the timeline for housing projections update,the <br /> concern with the City of Bloomington's comments regarding the sewer interceptor and a request for a <br /> chart showing mitigation efforts as they are proposed over are proposed over a specific timeline. <br /> No public comment was received. <br /> Member Housh made a motion, seconded by Member Bennett to close the public hearing. <br /> Ayes: Bennett,Housh,Masica,Swenson, Hovland <br /> Motion carried. <br /> Member Masica made a motion to adopt Resolution No. 121, adopting the Final Alternative Urban <br /> Areawide Review (AUAR) For the Gateway Study Area.
