Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Twin Cities Ammo Plant (MN) annexation debate
Arden Hills nixes TCAAP annexation
Council agrees that regional discussion may be in order

ARDEN HILLS - The Arden Hills City Council made it clear in a Feb. 1 special meeting by a 4-1 vote: it's not about to annex the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant property to any other entity, including the city of Shoreview.

The dissenting vote came from Mayor Stan Harpstead, who said the council made the blanket statement without "any presentation to the council as to the pros, cons, benefits or costs to the residents of Arden Hills."

Still, council members didn't close the door on hearing what other municipalities have to say on development of the 585-acre site. They unanimously approved a second motion that "we support joint information-sharing, planning and possible joint powers meetings of multiple cities regarding discussion of the regional significance of the development of the TCAAP property."
