Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Roseville, MN development plan
Marathon meeting ends in acrimony
Twin Lakes, budget decisions postponed

St. Paul Pioneer Press (MN)
December 22, 2004

Roseville city officials had to feel hung over Tuesday morning, but it
wasn't from holiday festivity. Monday's marathon City Council meeting
was anything but a party.


The council did approve a concept plan for an expansion to the Rosedale
shopping mall, but it held over discussion on a controversial concept
plan for the Twin Lakes redevelopment until January and didn't take up
the adoption of next year's budget.


Monday was to be the first consideration of the Twin Lakes land-use plan
since a citizen group's environmental petition against the project was
dismissed two weeks ago. But Ihlan, who with Council Member Tom Kough
has opposed the project, strenuously objected to taking up the land-use
plan "on such short notice."


Besides its projected financing, the plan's opponents have focused on
how the redevelopment would affect nearby Langton Lake and a surrounding
park, and how hazardous chemicals will be disposed of in the ground
beneath old truck terminals and warehouses.
