Housing Action Plan:
As part of the adopted Strategic Plan, the City Council requested a work session with the Carver County Community Development Agency (CDA) to learn more and explore options related to affordable housing. City and CDA staff shared a presentation on existing conditions, programs available, and trends they see in housing throughout Carver County.
The City Council reviewed an updated concept for a catalyst park in the downtown. The park would be located at the corner of Broadway and Main, which currently houses a vehicle and equipment storage building for the Public Services Department. The City Council was supportive of the new concept, with construction year to be considered during the Long-Term Financial Plan process. In order to move forward with the park project, the City would ultimately have to relocate the existing on-site vehicle and equipment storage. The concept can be viewed by clicking the Downtown Park link.
Cemetery Rules and Regulations:
The City Council reviewed new draft rules and regulations for the administration and operations at Mount Hope Cemetery. The City Council made suggested changes to the draft, with the final version anticipated to be ready for action at the August 16 meeting.
