<br />foxthe Rezoning from Open Development Disirict to k-4 MULTIPLE. 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 />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
