<br />requirement to meet in regard to the maintenance ofthe health, safety and
<br />welfare standards of the community. Mr, Francis Hagen, engineer for Mr, Jack
<br />Clapp, the developer, explained his proposal for installation of the utilities
<br />and said that the sanitary sewer system would be insulated and that it would
<br />take a fifty or one hundred year frequency storm to fill the low area to a
<br />point of overflow to which it would run out through the culvert to Blake Road.
<br />Mr. Dunn said that he Felieved that the 8" line which would be the responsi-
<br />bility of the City could be kept open as long as Mr, Hagen had guaranteed that
<br />it would be insulated. Ebllowing considerable discussion, Councilman Johnson
<br />offered the following resolution and moved its adoption, with the understanding
<br />that, prior to final plat approval, the City Attorney work out an agreement
<br />with the developer's attorney which would provide:

<br />PORTION OF ZENITH AVENUE VACATION APPROVED.
<br />by Clerk, approved as to form and ordered placed on file. Mr. Dunn explained
<br />that the proposed vacation of Zenith Avenue from W. 54th Street to the IJesterly
<br />extension of the North line of Lot 28, Block 3, Seel$'s First Addition to Haw-
<br />thorne Park, had been instigated by the City upon the receipt of a.petition for
<br />the vacation of the Westerly one-half of Zenith Avenue from W. 54th Street to
<br />* 120 feet.South. Mr. Luce clarified that most of Outlot A, White Investment
<br />Company's Hidden Valley, is in the Minnehaha Creek flood plain and that the
<br />portion of the Northeast corner of the outlot that is high enough is too nar-
<br />row for the construction of a house.
<br />requested vacation of only one-half of the street because one of the petitioners
<br />had not wanted to assume the tax burden for his side of the street, Mr. Luce
<br />added that Mr. and Mrs. Laszlo G. Pulop were also requesting that Outlot A be
<br />declared a buildable lot. Mr. George F. Speakes, 5408 York Ave. S., said that
<br />he spoke also for Mr. James R. Linder, 5410 York Ave. S., and that, while they
<br />do not object to the construction of the proposed house on Outlot A, they do
<br />not want both sides of the street vacated.
<br />along W. 54th Street are only 40 feet wide and that Mr. Fulop's lot is almost
<br />50 feet wide. Mr, Fulop said that he does not want to build on the Northwest
<br />corner of the lot and that'the street vacation is necessary if he is to build
<br />on the remaining high portion of the property.
<br />the City has taken a position that, if outlots are to be built upon, they must
<br />be platted. He agreed with the concensus of Council that it would be appro-
<br />priate to vacate the entire street and then consider a plat for the property
<br />which would include $12 vacated street;
<br />lowing resolution and moved its adoption:
<br />Affidavits of Notice were presented
