<br />property from the Blake School property in Hopkins.
<br />for a four-lot single family subdivision of property west of Dearborn Street and
<br />north of Belmore Lane. Mr. Hughes advised that he had talked with Bill Craig,
<br />Hopkins City Manager, who had explained.that while there is no access.proposed at

<br />in having a bus exit only on the westerly side of their property onto First Street.

<br />Road abutting the subdivision on the northerly side and the vacation of the alley
<br />on the easterly side of the property, with the vacated land being incorporated into
<br />the plat of Blake Woods. As noted in the staff report, if the access to the Miller
<br />Addition by right of Gay across lots ,on the west side of Dearborn Street not owned
<br />by the Millers is not resolved,it is recommended that the northerly portion of
<br />Dearborn not be vacated as it would preclude access from the north to the Miller
<br />the Blake Woods plat are needed. Should the City decide to improve Dearborn Street
<br />and Spruce Road to provide access for the Miller property, staff believes that no
<br />cul-de-sac should be platted in Blake Woods and instead the subject property should
