Gutter and to <br />assess Residential properties for 1/3 the cost per front foot for paving (on the <br />pr;smise ';;lair this assessment would be ecp3al to the assessment for a regular <br />b1_tci:topped street) and the full cost per front foot for curb and gutter. Estimated <br />Cosi, as given at Improvement Hearing was $10.50 per front foot for Paving for <br />C.or,r-unity Store properties; $3.50 per front foot for paving for Residential <br />propeerties end $2.10 per front foot for curb and gutter for all properties. <br />I.Sanager Hyde informed the Council that the assessment had been calculated, on <br />this basis, to produce an Assessable Front Foot Cost of ;9.55 per front foot for <br />paving for Community Store; 13.19 per front foot for paving for residential, and <br />_2.22 per -front foot for curb and gutter for all properties malting a total <br />assessment of :;9.55 against Community Store and $5.41 against -Presidential properties- - <br />That, as of only today (after mailed notices had gone out, showing the assessment <br />cost as hereinbefore set forth) it had been discovered that a stretch of France <br />Avenue, involving some 550 lineal feet south of this improvement, had been <br />erroneously included in the assessment roll; and that, therefore, the proposed <br />front footage assessment should be amended, as the Council determines, either to <br />conform i %ritil the originally proposed method of assessment (which would raise the <br />assessable cost to 5`2.47 per front foot for Curb and Gutter; X3.54 for Residential, <br />'11.26 for Community Store, for Paving); or, if the Council so determines, to the <br />Estimated Cost given at the Improvement ;Tearing (which would mean that the General <br />Fund of the Village will assume $4,910 more of the Improvement Cost that originally <br />proposed). On this latter basis, the General_ Fund will bear ;70,967.95 for the <br />-,.- mgr X9,355.00 for the Bridge, as was originally proposed; and $4,163.24 for <br />the Curl? and Gutter, for a Total General Fund cost of $84,496.19, and properties <br />abutting France Avenue will be asses -sed a total of $46,519.05, to male up Edina's <br />1141.,015.24 of the $255,435.70 Improvement. <br />`.ttorney A.E.I :Taag, 1020 Rand. Tower, representing several France Avenue property <br />Qviners, spa ?,e in opposition- to the assessment. He stated that the paving has made <br />France Avenue a literal race track - -a busy speedway and thoroughfare where traffic <br />is e:;treme_ly heavy; and people who live on the street, w1ho try to turn into their <br />garages, are held up for a considerable period of time before they can get into <br />their own garages. He told the Council that cement and sand trucks owned by <br />concerns at the lower and of France Avenue use the strest constantly,- that the <br />1_111c is terrifically noisy; and that now the speed limit ! ni ll be increased to <br />^511.117,'T. 1 :1 . Ilaag stated that this is no longer a residential community; that these <br />people not -r live adjacent to a highs ^gay; that they are now boing asI_ec- to pay for the <br />{evaluation of their property; that property has been devaluated from thirty to <br />thirty -five- percent as a result of this improvement; that the people he is -rep - <br />resenting feel very strongly that they should not be called upon to pay for the <br />depreciation of their own propexty. <br />
