Manager Hyde reviewed the explanation given in his Notice of 14ay 29, <br />1963, in which it was stated that if all the streets prop sed to be permanently <br />surfaced are considered as - one improvement, the Estimated/~so~~s~~l~ortland Cement <br />Concrete with Integral Curb is $11.16, and $10.40 for Bituminous Asphalt with <br />Concrete Curb and Gutter; the Concrete Paving Assessment being proposed for 15 <br />year term, Bituminous Asphalt for 10 year term. <br />individual Estimates of Cost were given as set forth below; and while such <br />comments as were made from the floor were interspersed throughout all the <br />Hearings , they are being recorded, here ,in the interests of coherency: <br />1. IN JOHNSON DRIVE FROM HWY. NO. 169 TO GROVE ST: RIDGE PARK ROAD FROM <br />JOHNSON DRIVE TO WARDEN AVE.: GATE PARK RD. FRO14 HWY. NO. 169 TO WARDEN AVE.: <br />WARDEN AVE. FROM JOHNSON DR. TO GATE PARK RD. (Petition by A.W. North Construction <br />Co. for Concrete Curb and Gutter and Asphalt Concrete Pavement, and submission of. <br />$34,000 Bond to guarantee payment of costs of same). Estimate of Cost Assessable <br />for Portland Cement Concrete Pavement with Integral Curb was given as $57,466.20, <br />proposed to be assessed against 5,438.86 Feet, for $10.57 per Assessable Foot; <br />for Asphalt with Concrete Curb and Gutter, $55,591.06, for $10.22 per Assessable <br />Foot. <br />filed bond to pay for all lots in Edina Parklands except one (which had been sold <br />before North took over subdivision); that this particular lot would pay'full cost <br />whichever way improvement is made. Messrs. Gerald Shuster, 5512 Warden Avenue, <br />and J. M. Rud, 5605 Gate Park Road, told Council their decision as to a preference <br />in type of surfacing depends entirely upon the difference in cost between the <br />two types proposed; that the subdivision had been sold by North to private <br />owners with the understanding that "surfaced streets are paid for", and that they <br />dislike bearing any additional cost. Mr. Rud added that at one time North had <br />considered having work done under private contract, at a cost which would have <br />been considerably less than the estimates given at this Hearing. Question was <br />asked as to whether North could be held for difference in cost if Council orders <br />Portland Cement Concrete Surfacing, but this was undetermined at the close of <br />the Hearing. Question was also asked if it is the intention of the Council to <br />apply the "one improvement" cost <br />and Mr. Hyde replied that this is the intent, because of the lower unit prices <br />received on a large improvement7 €4r. E. G. Lickteig, 5813 Johnson Drive, expressed <br />his preference for Portland Cement Concrete. f; 9; f; Later in the Hearing, Mr. Rud <br />objected to having to be assessed on a "one improvement" basis, citing the <br />additional preparation costs applicable to Hearing No. 2, which will be partly <br />absorbed by the assessment for this particular subdivision. <br />area had already paid for this preparation work in the cost of lots and should <br />not be required to absorb others' costs. <br />excavation required now depends not only on what was done originally, but on <br />how long ago it was done; that another factor in assessable cost is the number of <br />assessable feet on each road (under the policy of assessing-corner lots only 1/3 <br />of their assessable long sides, some streets have very little assessable footage). <br />Question was raised as to damages to Portland Cement Concrete by construction trucks. <br />Answer was that street will not be damaged by such travel. <br />Park Road stated difference in costs between two types of surfacing is the primary <br />consideration, asking if residents can delay stating their preference until costs <br />are in. <br />decision, but that preference of property owners will. be given consideration on <br />July 8. <br />DR. TO CUL-DE-SAC. (Petition by Grace Enterprises, Inc., for Concrete Curb and <br />Gutter and Asphalt Concrete Pavement-35.02% of Footage). <br />for Portland Cement Concrete Pavement with Integral Curb was $16,991.25, against <br />1,039.24 Feet, for $16.35 per Foot; for Asphalt Concrete Paving with Concrete Curb <br />and Gutter, $16,454.26, for $15.83 per Foot. Inquiry was made as to whether it is <br />intent to apply "one improvement" assessment, estimated at $11.16 and $10.40 <br />respectively, and answer was that this is the intent. <br />the primary reason for the high assessable cost is that there are many long-side <br />frontages here. f; f; f: Later in Meeting, Mr. Lickteig, 5813 Johnson Drive, asked if <br />Clerk presented Affidavit of Publication in Edina- <br />As Hearings were conducted, <br />Manager Hyde explained that Developer, A.W.
