The Rosemount City Council will convene at 6:30 p.m. today at the Rosemount City Hall to hold a council worksession. Here's a preview of a selection of agenda items the council is expected to discuss. For a full agenda, click here.
- Rosemount High School Athletic Director Michael Manning is worried about losing the athletic fields at Erickson Park in Rosemount due to the proposed construction of several tennis courts at the site. Although the city plans to build additional fields at Flint Hills Park, Manning believes the distance from the park to the high school makes using those proposed fields impractical for high school use. Manning has presented five alternatives to the council and is expected to speak about his concerns at the session.
- Rosemount organizations wanting to publicize a community-wide event could soon have another advertising outlet—banners on light poles in the city. The council is expected to discuss allowing private organizations to place banners on 145th Street and Hwy. 3—and the possibility of underwriting all or a portion of the cost for banners where the organization has a relationship with the city and delivers a community-wide event.
- The city, along with a handful of other area communities, is participating in the Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis to determine the appropriate route and mode of public transit between downtown St. Paul and Rosemount. The council is expected to review preliminary design alternatives for the transitway today.
- Finally, the Rosemount City Council is expected to hold a 2013 goal-setting discussion Jan. 25 and 26. The council will likely review a draft agenda for the goal-setting session today.
