The Maple Grove City Council moved forward with plans for the Cedarcrest project during its Monday, June 18 meeting.

The council also canceled its next meeting.

Here are some of the meeting’s highlights.



Public Works Director/City Engineer Ken Ashfeld presented the council with streets and utilities for the Cedarcrest project. This project consists of 62 single-family detached lots near Cedarcrest Academy.

The area is located south of Bass Lake Road, east of Lawndale Lane and northwest of Garland Lane N. Access to the development would come from the west off of Lawndale Lane, from the south with a future extension of a north-south road and from the east off of Jewel Lane.

There is also a small piece of property in the southwestern corner of the development that will house a private pool area.

Ashfeld said the public improvements serving the development include public improvements. These improvements includes "the typical sanitary sewer and water main improvements to serve the single-family detached units, along with the standard streets, sidewalks, trails and storm drainage systems," he added. A total proposed assessment with area trunk assessments is $3,081,304 or $49,698 per lot.

The council opened the public hearing on the matter, but no one from the audience spoke.

The council then approved 4-0 the ordering of the Cedarcrest of Maple Grove area street and utility project, receiving surety, ordering plans, approving plans and authorizing advertisement for bids. Councilor Leann Sargent was absent.


The council approved canceling its Monday, July 2 meeting.

In year’s past the council has canceled the meeting that falls near the Fourth of July Holiday.
