<br />Morningside Courier May 30 and June 6, 1963, of "Notice of Public Hearings on
<br />Permanent Street Surfacing and Concrete Curb and Gutter, and, pursuant to said
<br />Notice, and a mailed notice to all affected property owners, Public Hearings were
<br />held as follows, all being for "PERMANENT STREET SURFACING AND CONCRETE CURB AND
<br />GUTTER". 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 />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 />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. North Construction Co. had
<br />rather than the individual improvement assessment,
<br />He stated that his
