<br />Outlot 1, Fellman's Addition from R-3.to R-4 Multiple Residence District,
<br />Affidavits of Mailing on May 27 and of Publication in the Edina-Morningside Courier
<br />on May 26, 1966, were presented by Clerk, approved as to form and ordered placed
<br />on file by motion of Trustee MacMillan, seconded by Tmstee Johnson and unanimously
<br />taken as herein recorded. Mr, Fredlund stated that this property, which is bounded
<br />by W, 70th St, on the south, Nine Mile Creek on the north, Otto's Third Addition
<br />on the south and the N,N. E S. Railroad on the east is so cut up by easements and the
<br />creek that it would not be feasible to construct two ten unit buildings as would
<br />be permitted in the R-3 Mulfiple Residence zoning. Zoning change as proposed would
<br />allow an increase of density from 20 units to 26 units all in one building, The
<br />proposed building would be two and a half story construction facing 11, 70th Street,
<br />Trustee MacMillan questioned the grade which would be considered and was told by
<br />Mr, Hite that this would be the grade now proposed for 14, 70th St. Trustee
<br />VanValkenburg questioned proposed usage of the property to the north of Nine Mile
<br />Creek and was advised by Nr. Fredlund that because it is below flood plain elevation,
<br />it is highly unlikely that it will ever be used for anything other than ponding
<br />purposes and recommended that the Village acquire the property for this purpose.
<br />Trustee Tupa stated that the Village already has dedication of property in Otto's
<br />Third Addition and that this dedication would be desirable so that there would be
<br />a continuous strip, Mr. O'Brien stated that he will agree to dedicate the creek.
