Llr. Herrill Finch, 89 Woodland Circle, apologized to the Council and <br />to Br. Bredt for the concern he had previously registered over this project. <br />Saying he and two of his neighbors had met with Mr, Hite on the Thursday after <br />the July 20th Public Hearing, and had at that time become convinced they would <br />not be hurt by this proposal and I4innehaha Creek would have no less water than it <br />now has because of the proposal, he said he feels that the Village administration <br />is just as interested in 14innehaha Creek as it is in Lake Edina or Lake Cornelia. <br />Lir. Bredt stated he feels the area East of France Avenue will be hurt more than <br />that Vest of France, and tlr. Hite assured him that the poposed structure is a <br />simple affair and that it will be a simple operation to reduce or stop it if there <br />is some substantial effect on the Creek. <br />Llayor Bredesen annbunced <br />July 20th Public Hearing on the proposed COIJSTRUCTIOii OF A <br />DIVERS103 STRUCTURE, PIPE FROM THE DIVERSIOIJ STRUCTURE; TO LAKE CORNELIA, AND <br />I I-layor Bredesen explained that <br />Proposed project was reviewed briefly <br />There were <br />Xr.

Hite told audience that most of the water which keess the <br />Creek flowing is rain water, not air conditioning water; that some plans-are <br />being considered for the enhancement of the Creek; i.e, the enlargement of Lake <br />Pamela--which is comparatively easy because the Village owns the property--and <br />storage of the water from the entire Lake Harvey-Concord-School area, which now <br />drains directly into the Creek at approximately Philbrook Lane and is out of the <br />Village within an hour. Nr.
