    The Edina City Council will meet at Edina City Hall on Monday, Dec. 11, 2022, at 6:00 p.m., to consider the public hearing on roadway improvements for Southdale B Neighborhood Roadway Reconstruction. This hearing is being conducted under the authority granted by Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 429.


    This hearing has been called as a recommendation from staff. The proposed project would be constructed in the summer of 2024 with the assessment hearing occurring in the fall of 2025. The estimated cost is $1,095,854.05 and is funded by special assessment. The estimated cost per assessable lot is $950.00 per multi-family residential unit (condominium or apartment). The assessment can be divided over a fifteen-year period with interest accumulating on the unpaid balance.


    The City hired Nagell Appraisal Inc. to prepare a letter report providing a preliminary opinion of market benefit for similar properties in the neighborhood. The letter report is available for viewing in the document library located here.


    The area proposed to be assessed the cost of the proposed improvement includes the following:


    3330 and 3400 West 66th Street, 6300 to 6525 Barrie Road, 6301 to 6423 Colony Way, 3105 to 3456 Heritage Drive, 6200 Xerxes Avenue.

    Soil Borings are scheduled for the week of 8/7.

    This is the process of drilling holes in the ground to collect soil samples to gain a basic understanding of the subgrade conditions under the pavement. This information will assist in the roadway and utility design.
