Background

Staff report prepared by Shawn Kaye, Associate Planner

 

The City Council approved a rezoning, conditional use permit and a preliminary plat on October 18, 2018 for the development that includes a Hy-Vee store and convenience/gas store and car wash on the southwest corner of Jefferson Street NE and 125th Avenue. A final plat was approved for two lots for the development of the grocery store and convenience store in November 2018. The applicant did not record the plat and therefore, the final plat approval is null and void.

 

The applicant has applied for a new final plat that includes three lots instead of the previous two lots. The additional lot is for the development of an independent senior living building which was approved by the City Council on October 4, 2021.

 

The final plat consists of three lots and two outlots. The gas/convenience store/car wash would be located on Lot 1 of the plat. Lot 1 is 4.5 acres. The parcel on which the Hy-Vee grocery store would be located would be platted as Lot 2. Lot 2 is 13.04 acres. Lot 3 is 6.5 acres and is for the development of an independent senior living building. Outlot A will be used for storm draining purposes. Outlot B will be used for future development.

 

Park dedication will need to be paid on the three lots being platted at this time. The 2021 park dedication rate for commercial property is $8,704 per acre. The total acreage for Lots 1 and 2 is 17.5 acres so the fee for Lots 1 and 2 would be $152,320. The residential rate is $4,449 per unit (2021 rate). The proposed units for Lot 3 is 184 units, the total fee for Lot 3 would be $818,616 if paid in 2021. This fee must be paid prior to release of the final plat mylars by the City for recording purposes at Anoka County. Park dedication will also be required on Outlot B when it is re-platted and developed in the future.

 

The development is proposing to realign the existing ditch. This will require review and permit from the Coon Creek Watershed District. The ditch realignment will require the new ditch alignment to be placed in a platted drainage and utility easement.

 

The existing 124th Lane in the Crescent Ponds addition will need to be properly abandoned and realigned, along with the walk extension into the proposed plat. The walk extension and connection will need to be incorporated into the first phase of site work. The development will also be responsible to complete a water main loop with the connection from the stubbed water main on Jefferson Street (north end of Crescent Ponds) to the intersection of 125th Lane and Jefferson.

 

Jefferson Street will be extended southward through the plat and connect through to 121st Avenue establishing the planned transportation link between University Avenue and 125th Avenue. This extension is identified as a collector street on the City’s State Aid system and will need to be constructed to State Aid Standards. This street connection has been part of the City’s master plan for this area since the Crescent Ponds neighborhoods were initially conceived.

 

The final plat is consistent with the approved preliminary plat, Resolution No. 18-195.
