<br />. Nays: None I PARKING LOT 1MPIIOVEI.IENT NO. P-12 ASSESSMENT LEVIED. Mr. Rosland recalled that the
<br />Assessment Hearing for Parking Lot Inprovement No. P-12 had been continued from
<br />August 13, 1980, and that the Colonial Church of Edina has requested a reduction
<br />in the assessment in view of the fact that the total construction cost of
<br />$63,868.12 had exceeded the estimated construction cost of $34,734.81 and that the
<br />church had not been advised of this additional cost. Err. Rosland further recalled
<br />that a portion of the parking lot is built on City property. He explained that the
<br />unusual difference in the estimated cost and the actual cost was due to soil condi-
<br />tions and recommended that the assessment be reduced by the zmount of the engin-
<br />eering and clerical costs to 558,564.95 and also that the assessment be spread
<br />over 20 years.
<br />that the land on which the parking lot was built is immediately to the West of
<br />Countryside Park and that, at the time the parking lot was built, the church
<br />dedicated the area now known as Colonial Way and an additional area of approxi-
<br />mately 3 or 4 acres to the City for use as a parking lot for park activities.
<br />also recalled that additional parking space was necessary at the time the church
<br />added additional seating in the balcony and that the dedication of the land was
<br />made at that the. Mr. Laukka concurred with Mr. Rosland that it was unfortunate
<br />that the soil conditions caused the additional cost. Following considerable .dis-
<br />cussion, Councilman Courtney offered the following resolution and moved its adopt-
<br />ion :
<br />Xr. Larry Laukka, representing Colonial Church of Edina, recalled
