Parking Lot Striping (Main and Broadway)
City staff presented a striping plan for parking near the intersection of Main Street West and Broadway in the downtown. The plan creates additional parking in the area while preserving needed access to the existing Public Services storage garage located at 117 Broadway. Striping improvements are planned for early this spring.
Private Infrastructure Policy:
The City Council adopted a policy affirming and clarifying a practice of not accepting requests from neighborhoods to take over privately maintained infrastructure (private streets, lights, and so on) within the community.
Volunteer Commission Appointments:
The City Council appointed Sandra Kelley and Jill Finney to the Heritage Preservation Commission and Phil Schechter, Daniel Vellek, Reid Welch, and Mary Nelson to the Planning Commission.
Outdoor Recreation Grant:
The City Council approved a resolution authorizing the submission of a grant application to the DNR's Outdoor Recreation Grant Program for the future development of Creekside Park. Phase I park improvements in the grant application consist of two pickle ball courts, two dog parks (small breed and large breed), trail improvements, and parking lot improvements.
Architectural Services Agreement:
An architectural service agreement with Wold Architects and Engineers was approved to proceed with design development for an addition to the Fire Station to create climate-controlled storage for the Department's turnout gear, an equipment and vehicle storage facility for the Public Services Department, and to assess maintenance projects for the existing building at 801 Jonathan Carver Parkway. Updated designs and recommendations, including a revised cost estimate are anticipated to be completed this fall.
2023 Utilities Project:
The City Council approved plans and specifications for a project to include a backup on-site generator with automatic transfer switch as the Well 5 and Well 6, replace the Mount Hope Road pressure reducing valve (PRV), and add a blowoff valve to the watermain on Highland Drive.
