A large map of the route <br />and district proposed to be assessed was shown to an audience of about 150 <br />persons; and Ki. Adolph ]?eyer, Consulting Engineer for the proposed project, <br />explained the proposed project in detail. He stated that the purpose of the <br />proposed storm sewer is to provide an outlet for the '*excess runoff" which is <br />caused by the construction of streets and structures in farmland; that the <br />proposed project ail1 drain some 700 aqA%fi or more; that it will provide <br />ten to twelve percent more protection/is customarily provided in Ninneapolis; <br />that _the project is ,pl.apned to utilize Lake Cornelia as -a temporary storage 'basin, <br />which will act as a buffer -I and decrease the cost of the project. 13. LIeyer <br />reported that the "natural high water mark" of Lake Cornelia is 863$, although <br />the lake has not been that high for a number of years; that his recormendation <br />€or a dt -control level for the lake would be 859.; that works would be built <br />at the Lake's outlet so that as soon as the lake reached the cdntrd, . <br />level the water would flow over a wier, and into the trunk outlet to Nine- <br />IAile Creek. <br />sewer into the pond North of Lake Cornelia and thence into Minnehaha Creek; <br />that, because the level of the pond is higher than that of Lake Cornelia it <br />is not feasible to drain Lake Cornelia to the north--that the most economical <br />way is to drain it to the south. <br />planned for ultimate service to a great area; that the excess runoff must go <br />somewhere; that lateral sewers have been provided in the areas which are in <br />immediate need, with the trunk of a capacity to serve both present and future <br />laterals. <br />composed of part of Koodhill, a section of South Garden Estates, and part of <br />the block north of 70th between Creston Road and Nooddale Avenue, which must be <br />served by a line along Y!.70th Street across Highway #lo0 and then emptying into <br />Nine-Llile Creek. <br />as outlined in written notice, as follows: <br />Area 1. - South third of Roodhill, that section of South Garden Estates <br />currently being developed, and part of the block north of Z'1.70th Street between <br />Creston Road and :'boddale Avenue - s.034 per Square Foot for the 5'1.70th St. line; <br />nothing for proposed Trunk Sewer. <br />the Trunk Sewer, <br />area, plus most af the undeveloped portion of South Garden Estates - S.019 per <br />Square Foot for Lateral Storm Servers (in addition to assessment for Trunk). <br />Ur. Hyde explained that the area West of Normandale Road, South of Valley View <br />Road and North of K.6Gth Street can be served by a storm sewer running Ylest from <br />the area to Nine-Xile Creek; that if this area elects to be served in this manner <br />. rather than by the presently planned Trunk, the assessable trunk cost to the <br />balance of the area will be increased by slightly more than $.01 per square foot. <br />OBJECTTOXS were raised 'by: <br />on the grounds that Creston Hills "is a plateau with a rim around it" and does <br />not contribute to the drainage problem. <br />?*ha D.
