<br />A large map, showing the proposed routes of Trunk Lines C-1 and C-2, was placed
<br />before the audience.
<br />consideration is the size of the so-called Itconnecting link" between France Avenue
<br />and Normandale Road; that, for purposes of economy, this main has been planned
<br />large enough to serve the future trunk for service to the Southwest area--that if
<br />the "connecting linkll is not accepted by the Southwest area, now, it will be
<br />necessary to construct an entirely E line between Fr ce nd N r ndal at SUC future date as the Southwest area is to be servedf$&d?x% c s$ &%?e e f-? p?e&%r, 8 p?an e tir eo !?y by C-2
<br />charge the Southwest area 30s of the total cost of constructing the Irconnecting
<br />1inkl1, this percentage being based on the relative number of potential users in
<br />this district as compared with the combined C-1-C-2 districts.
<br />the audience that the Estimated Cost of the llconnecting link11 is estimated to be
<br />$713,000, of which the C-2 area wmld pay 30$, for a cost of 92$ per platted front
<br />property. He informed the audience that, if the entire C-2 line is constructed
<br />now, the cost, including C-2's portion of the "connecting link11, i?Tould be appro:rj=-
<br />mately S965,OOO, for an estimated $3,42 per platted front foot, up to a m&&mum
<br />150 feet per lot, or 6684.00 per acre. Nessrs. R.R, Overholt, 6944 Valley View
<br />Road, LE. Jensen, 6939 Valley View Rd., and some others, protested that the
<br />planning is tlpremturelt; that the area is not ready for development, and will not
<br />be ready for developnent for many years.
<br />one owner in Prospt Hills, protested that the ultimate cost for sewer "into the
<br />homesI1 rill. be prohibitive for the already-platted hilly areas; that lots are
<br />large and that several cesspools can be dug forthe cost of sewer service.
<br />owning unplatted property complained that the proposed assessment amounts to
<br />llconfiscation of propertrI: for them. One man advocated that the C-2 area be
<br />allowed to pay the difference in the cost of the pipe onlz-vs'nich would not
<br />increase the cost to C-1 and still give C-2 the opportunity of connecting at a
<br />future date. Iir. Hyde stated he feels this proposition would have to be taken
<br />up with the otmers in the C-1 area before it could be settled because it would
<br />amount to a contribution by the C-1 area to the C-2 area,
<br />that the C-2 area might go in with Bloomington, on a connection there, and Trustee
<br />Tupa pointed out that Hophs is now asking to come into %a's sewer but can't
<br />be taken in because of our agreement with Richfield and BIjnneapolis as to
<br />maxjmm potential flowage.
<br />call for participation in cost of a sewage disposal plakit--which will be many
<br />times as expensive as the present plan. Nr. Horace T. I.iorris, owner of unplatted
<br />property, advocated that the C-2 area pay, now, the difference in the cost of the
<br />pip., only; that the remaining portion of cost be deferred until such time 2s the
<br />C-2 area request connection to the "connecting link".
<br />there were anyone in the audience in favor of the project as planned, ad it tras
<br />determined that there were none. Tup moved that proposed Sanitary SeT.rer
