Meeting Date: 05/07/2019  
Subject:    Consider Resolution 19-2(12) Adopting Assessments for MSA Street Reconstruction Project 19-2
Submitted For: Mark Hansen From: Sarah Greene, Administrative Assistant II

The City is proposing to improve 2.3 miles of Municipal State Aid (MSA) streets by reconstruction as part of project 19-2. Staff and the City's consultant, Hakanson Anderson, completed the plans, advertised the project on April 26 and May 3, and will receive bids on May 16, 2019. At this time, Council is asked to adopt the assessments. Bids will be presented for consideration on May 21, 2019.
Streets within the project area, illustrated on the attached Project Location Map, are proposed to be rehabilitated via reconstruction methods. Proposed improvements include the reclamation of the existing bituminous surface and aggregate base, removal and replacement of damaged curb and gutter, sidewalk and pedestrian curb ramp improvements in accordance with ADA requirements, watermain pipe valve and hydrant replacements, repairs or replacements to the existing storm sewer and sanitary sewer as needed. Curb bump outs are proposed along Foley Boulevard in the area of Goldenrod Street and 118th Avenue, as well as 123rd Avenue to help address neighborhood speeding concerns and to reduce crosswalk lengths. A pedestrian actuated rectangular rapid flashing beacon is proposed near Goldenrod Street at the existing Sand Creek trail crossing. The existing 5-foot wide concrete sidewalk located on the east side of Foley Boulevard is proposed to be reconstructed into an 8 or 10-foot wide asphalt trail from Northdale Boulevard to Main Street. This new asphalt trail will continue the previously constructed trail system along the Anoka County segment of Foley Boulevard south of Northdale Boulevard all the way north to Bunker Hills Regional Park. The existing watermain pipe on Olive Street is proposed to be replaced from 121st Avenue to Main Street, and the Sand Creek culvert system below Foley Boulevard is also proposed to be replaced.  

The following streets are proposed for reconstruction:
  1. Wedgewood Dr from Main St to Round Lake Blvd
  2. Olive St from Main St to 121st Ave
  3. Foley Blvd from 124th Ln to 115th Ave

Open house meetings were held during evening hours on November 27, 2018 and January 29, 2019 to provide information about the project and discuss comments and concerns from area property owners. Council accepted the feasibility report on December 18, 2018, and ordered the improvement and advertisement for bids on February 19, 2019. Public and assessment hearings were also held on February 19, 2019. No written objections were submitted.

Properties proposed to be assessed include 91 single family residential properties, three residential twin home/duplex properties, one City-owned property (park), 100 townhome/condominium properties, one commercial property, and one school property. The reconstruction assessment rates approved by City Council on December 18, 2018 are $2,070 for single family residential property, $26 per front foot for multi-family residential property, $52 per front foot for commercial property, and $67 per front foot for industrial property. 

Bids will be received on May 16, 2019, and presented to Council for consideration at its May 21, 2019 regular meeting.
Staff recommends Council adopt Resolution No. 19-2(12) adopting the assessments for project 19-2.

The total estimated cost of the proposed improvement is $5,293,942 with the total amount assessed of $329,122.
