Meeting Date: February 21, 2023
The City Council Meeting Rundown is intended to be used as an informal summary of Work Session and Regular Meeting highlights. For complete details on all agenda items, official meeting minutes, or to watch a video of the meeting, visit Watch City Meetings.
A concept plan for a commercial development project just east of Kwik Trip on Jonathan Carver Parkway was reviewed. Proposed by Hometown Bank, the concept plan shows a 4,100 square foot building located at the northwest corner of Jonathan Carver Parkway and Monroe Drive. The plan shows a shared space between Hometown Bank and an unnamed coffee shop user.
Private Infrastructure Policy:
Staff presented the City Council with a draft policy that would affirm and clarify the City's past practice of not accepting requests from neighborhoods to take over privately maintained infrastructure (private streets, lights, and so on) within the community.
Building Permit Review:
Staff reviewed modifications to the City's standard developer's agreement that will assist in efforts to repair damaged sidewalks and ensure required landscaping is completed in conjunction with home construction.
Fire Station and Public Services Building Project:
The Council reviewed space study findings for the Fire Department and Public Services Department. The presentation also included the review of potential maintenance projects at the existing building at 801 Jonathan Carver Parkway, including roof work, roof-top HVAC unit replacement, and upgraded salt storage facilities. A preliminary cost analysis anticipates the total project could cost $4,600,000 (Public Services, Fire Station, and maintenance projects). The impact, using a conservative no growth tax base model, shows a $124 tax increase on an average valued home of $408,000 in the City of Carver. The City Council will consider hiring an architect at their March 6 meeting, to refine project scope and corresponding project costs by the end of this summer. Prior to the City Council considering approval of any project, the findings of the design development phase, including updated cost estimates, will be shared to communicate project details and seek feedback from the community.
