Mr. Rosland <br />explained that City policy on the improvement of Municipal State Aid Streets is <br />to assess benefited abutting single family detached residential and park property <br />for the equivalent cost of a standard thirty foot wide light duty residential <br />street. He advised that the rate established is $8.00 per front foot for grading <br />and $12.00 per front foot for permanent street surfacing and curb and gutter, for <br />a total of $20.00 per front foot for the total improvement. Cost for residential <br />property other than single family detached residential property was given at <br />$12.00 per front foot for grading and $18.00 for permanent street surfacing and <br />concrete curb and gutter, for a total of $30.00 per front foot, with all additional <br />costs proposed to be paid from Municipal State Aid Funds. Mr. Hoffman reviewed <br />the history of the area, recalling that the Southwest Edina Plan, prior to <br />adoption by the%ouncil in 1971, had called for industrial development on both <br />sides of Cahill Road. The Plan adopted by the Council had multiple housing on <br />the West side of Cahill Road. He then reviewed traffic patterns for the area, <br />showing traffic counts and turning movements and projecting 5,000 vehicles per <br />day on Dewey Hill Road when the area is totally developed in approximately 1985. <br />Mr. Rosland recalled that the Department of Public Safety has opposed the Dewey <br />Hill Road cul-de-sac and that 90% of all Dewey Hill Road traffic is local traffic. <br />He recalled that the park was not in the original Southwest Edina Plan and pointed <br />out that this fact would result in a change in the projection for traffic patterns. <br />In view of these changes, Mr. Rosland recommended that Amundson Avenue not be <br />constructed, and that, if Delaney Blvd. is to be conktructed, it should be <br />assessed against all benefited properties and that it not be a part of the State <br />Aid System. <br />designated State..Aid. s2tree;ts. <br />Dewey Hill Road/Cahill Road intersection could be cut off if traffic from the <br />industrial area should become a problem in the future. <br />Mr. Ronald Erickson representing Lanvesco agreed with the recommendations presented <br />by Mr. Rosland, pointing out that construction of Amundson Avenue would be a <br />serious detriment to Lanvesco's proposed development, inasmuch as they would be <br />forced to build one large building, rather than two buildings of 60 units each. <br />An unidentified gentleman in the audience was told that the Lanvesco clevelopment <br />is proposed to be located just South of Braemar Oaks, North of Dewey Hill Road. <br />The Mayor clar'ified that whPle the zoning of the Lanvesco property is not being <br />heard at this meeting, it is an obvious part of the overall development of the <br />area. <br />Mr. Rosland be studied thoroughly before any action is taken, and pointed out that <br />properties on Florence Lane would not have access to Delaney Boulevard. <br />. <br />Xr.
