<br />A review was made of the proposed assessments for the Trunk Main, total cost estimated
<br />at $253,870.00 and proposed to be assessed in the various areas at costs from $.0016
<br />to $.0287 per Square Foot, as shown in Notice of Hearing, for the respective areas

<br />Mr, G. L. Alexander, 6616 Southcrest Dr,, asked if it is true that the Southdale
<br />Shopping Center area will never need the use of the Lake Cornelia project;
<br />Mr. L.S. Clark inquired as to whether Southdale Shopping Center water can be
<br />kept out of Lake Cornelia in times of heavy storms and high water.
<br />Shopping Center would bear, should it be determined that it should be assessed.
<br />and Hyde as follows:
<br />age does not go directly into Lake Cornelia; that it drains into a small pond Northeast
<br />of Valley View Road, then Northeasterly into Lake Pamela and then North to Minnehaha
<br />Creek; and Mr. Barr stated that there is an overflow structure in operation at the
<br />present time and that a dyke has been built across the channel at the point where
<br />overflow would go into Lake Cornelia; that there will be another project proposed
<br />later to take care of water from Southdale Center area without detriment in any way
<br />to the project proposed here.
<br />office buildings, Southdale Center, Southdale Medical Building, etc,, is now fairly
<br />completely storm sewered into the ponds and thence North into Minnehaha Creek; that
<br />the storage volume into the ponds, considered at the time the sewers were constructed
<br />by Southdale, was not finally acquired and that it has been decreased from the amount
<br />planned, by the Village's taking some for the swimming pool park, the Highway Depart-
<br />ment taking some, etc. JAr. Barr stated that the area is completely storm sewered
<br />except for the storage; that several different means for storage are now under
<br />consideration, including the Garrison Lane Swamp.
<br />which might be more desirable would be around Lake Cornelia; that the Village does
<br />not have control over this property but could acquire more land around Lake Cornelia
<br />and make it more desirable for storage; that, if it should be decided to use Lake
<br />Cornelia as storage for Southdale waters, Southdale would be assessed for the cost
<br />of the additional storage space.
<br />To Mr. Alexander's question Mr. Barr replied that it is true that Southdale
<br />Center may never need the Lake Cornelia storage, if storage can be acquired elsewhere;
<br />that it would be to the advantage of Lake Cornelia to allow diversion of Southdale
<br />waters into it. Mr. Adolph Meyer augmented this statement by explaining that the
<br />level of Lake Cornelia cannot be maintained, in dry periods, without the help of
<br />some supplementary supply; that there will be years when the Village will welcome
<br />any water it can get, to maintain the lake level, He stated he feels that some
<br />provision should be made between Southdale and the Village Council for release of
<br />Southdale waters into Lake Cornelia when it is needed.
<br />To Mr. Francis' inquiry, Mr. Barr reported that, should Southdale waters be
<br />stored in Lake Cornelia, it is proposed to assess the Southdale area at $.0044 per
<br />square foot for the cost of the additional storage space required; that this proposed
<br />assessment will not change the proposed assessments against the areas shown on the
<br />accompanying map.
<br />concerning assessment of the Southdale Shopping Center area, providing that this area
<br />contributes anything to the Lake Cornelia drainage district; that, on the other hand,
<br />if no water is contributed by the area, no assessment should be made against it.
<br />Mr. William Crear, representing Southdale Center interests, stated he feels that
<br />the present plan is a good one; that Southdale Center is willing to pay its share of
<br />any assessment.where the center will use the drainage facilities.
