RESIDENCE DISTRICT <br />o€ Blbcks 20 and 21, Emma Abbott Park, for the purpose of construction of 220-Unit <br />Apartments thereon. Hearing had been continued from the March 2nd Heeting to this <br />meeting for the purpose of Council's securing report on traffic in this-areas and the <br />effect this proposed development would have on traffic, and also for the purpose of <br />ascertaining availability of sanitary sewer,and water supply, to this area, Mr. Hite <br />submitted to the Council a report entitled "Traffic Study and Report for the Village <br />of Edina, Minnesota--Brookside Avenue E 44th Street Area", dated April 6, 1964, by <br />Bather Engineering, Traffic Consultant at Excelsior, Minnesota. <br />indicates that the 220-unit apartment development will not cause a traffic hazard <br />on Bither IJ.44th Street or Brookside Avenue. <br />As to the Sanitary Sewer and the Water Supply, Mr, Hite told Council there <br />will be no difficulty at a11 about the Sanitary Sewer inasmuch as it is now very <br />near the property; but that the Watermain is several blocks away--that, in this <br />case, the simplest means of obtaining water would be from St.Louis Park, although <br />it could reach the development by bringing it east on Division St. and then North <br />on Rutledge Avenue, or brought from the East (48th Street), <br />watermain, saying he is quite concerned about who would be assessed and how much <br />the assessment would be. <br />1962 because of the high cost and the small amount of assessable property. <br />added he wants to be sure that if water is put in it goes close to his residence <br />so that he can hook up to it, <br />population concentration than a single family development, asking if this is going <br />to appreciakly influence the schools, and if taxpayers are thus going to be assessed <br />even more for school services. To this last, Mayor Bredesen replied that from the <br />information the Council has had, apartments will contribute very few students to <br />the school system; that the property will contribute more taxes per student than <br />private dewellings do. <br />had a number of discussion since the March 2nd Hearing, in attempting to get oriented <br />to this project, and that in view of the fact that no one could come up with a <br />positive proposal other than singLe family dwellings for the use of this land and <br />everyone seems to appreciate that owners should be able to make some use ofthe <br />property, it was the hope of the people that the Council could somehow work with- <br />the developers to assure maintenance of what appears to be a high quality project. <br />He said the neighbors feel it is. probable that builders may see fit to downgrade <br />the development later, should the economic situation change or should it prove <br />impossible to fully rent those units constructed within the next couple of years. <br />He added the residents surrounding the proposed development would appreciate any- <br />thing the Council could do along the line of enforcing a continued high standard <br />fo? the project . <br />Mayor Bredesen reminded Mr. Bale that Council cannot force development, but <br />that maintenance of a high standard is-being encouraged by the requirement that the <br />le'ast desirablelproperty be improved first and the most desirable land be utilized <br />I This report <br />fib.
