P-BA-267 (MC CAULEY TRAIL AND TIMBER TRAIL) CONTINUED TO 8/18/86. Affidavits <br />of Notice were presented by Clerk, approved and ordered placed on file. Pursuant <br />to due notice given, a public hearing was conducted and action taken as hereinafter <br />set forth: <br />A. BITUMINOUS STREET PAVING AND CONCRETE CURB AND GUTTER IMPROTDENT NO. P-BA-267 <br />IN THE FOLLOWING: <br />McCauley Trail from Gleason Road to 2014' West <br />Timber Trail from McCauley Trail to cul-de-sac <br />Mr. Rosland presented total estimated construction cost for Street Improvement <br />No. P-BA-267 at $136,404.42, proposed to be assessed against 3,291.90 assessable <br />feet at an estimated cost of $41.44 per assessable foot. <br />recalled that when Indian Hills 2nd Addition was platted one of the conditions <br />was to petition for installation of permanent street surfacing and curb and gutter <br />on McCauley Trail West and Timber Trail. Cost for the Timber Trail portion is <br />approximately $35,000 and will be constructed as part of the development of the <br />plat. <br />there is existing asphalt now and a question has been raised regarding waiting a <br />year or two to pave McCauley Trail. <br />the opinions of the developer and Crossview Lutheran Church regarding the question, <br />but that the roadway should be built at some point in time to fulfill the condition <br />when the final plat was approved. <br />properties just off Gleason Road are proposed to be assessed for one-third the <br />sideyard distance and would get credit for previous curb and gutter assessments. <br />The remaining cost is proposed to be assessed at approximately.$46,000 to prop- <br />erties in Indian Hills 2nd Addition which.abut McCauley Trail and at approximately <br />$26,000 to Crossview Lutheran Church. Because-there has been no past policy of <br />the Council which could be applied to this type of location (i.e. no developed <br />property now or in the future on the Crosstown Highway side) staff would suggest <br />that the City be assessed for approximately one-third of the cost of about <br />$26,000 which would be paid over a ten-year period as part of the City's budgeting <br />for special assessment costs. <br />Church, stated that the church has come to an agreement with the developer as to <br />distribution of costs for improvement of Timber Trail. <br />it was an appropriate time for improvement of McCauley Trail fronting their pro- <br />perty for these reasons: 1) it would be an additional cost of $26,000 on top of <br />the church's $800,000 building program, 2) they do not feel it would enhance the <br />property, and 3) there is no erosion problem as the street is on grade. <br />is therefore asking that the Council not make the improvement at this time. <br />Member Richards asked if the church were involved in the platting of Indian Hills <br />2nd Addition and if it was aware of the conditions imposed when the plat was approved. <br />Mr. Sedgewick said the church was involved in the dividing of the property, that it <br />was done all at one time with the church keeping approximately 5 acres and selling <br />the balance to Gustafson and Associates. He added that when further development <br />occurs down McCauley Trail that additional paving will be needed. <br />stated that he and his brother Jeff are the developers of the plat and that both <br />the church and the developer were well aware of this requirement when the plat was <br />approved. He said that the church's position is that they did not realize the <br />road improvement would cost this much, that they do not have the budget for their <br />expansion project and would prefer not to have the road improved at this time. <br />From the developer's standpoint, Mr. Gustafson said that they are questioning <br />I) if it is really needed and 2) if it is, whether it could be postponed for a <br />year or so. He added that in talking with staff, they concurred that it would <br />make-sense to postpone the road improvement until the soil correction and land- <br />scaping work was done on the plat to insure that no damage was done to the curb. <br />Engineer Fran Hoffman <br />With regard to improvement of McCauley Trail, Mr. Hoffman pointed out that <br />Staff would suggest that the Council hear <br />Mr. Hoffman stated that the three single family <br />Charles Sedgewick, representing Crossview Lutheran <br />However, they did not feel <br />The church <br />- I / <br />Greg Gustafson
