Councilmembers absent: Mayor Jeff Jacobs. Staff present: City Manager (Mr. Harmening), City Attorney (Mr. Scott), Chief Information Officer (Mr. Pires), Director of Community Development (Mr. Locke), Director of Engineering (Ms. Heiser), Senior Engineering Project Manager (Mr. Sullivan), Planning and Zoning Supervisor (Ms. McMonigal), Marketing & Communications Coordinator (Mr. Zwilling), Technology/Web Coordinator (Mr. Huber), and Recording Secretary (Ms. Hughes). Guest: Heather Kienitz (SEH). 1. Future Study Session Agenda Planning – June 23, 2014 Mr. Harmening presented the proposed study session agenda for June 23rd. He stated that the City recently received a proposal for the northeast corner of Monterey and Excelsior Boulevard and suggested that Council hold a special study session on June 16th to review the proposal. It was the consensus of the City Council to schedule a special study session on June 16th in order to discuss the proposed mixed use project. Councilmember Hallfin requested that a future study session agenda include a discussion about the Park Improvement Fund and the City’s planning process for use of those dollars. Mr. Harmening agreed to include this item as part of an upcoming budget discussion. 2. Update on Citizen Response Management System (Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park) Mr. Pires presented the staff report and stated that the 2014-2015 communications work plan includes a focus on Citizen Response Management (CRM) as a way to make it easier for residents to report issues or submit service requests on mobile devices via Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park, scheduled to be launched on July 7th. Mr. Huber provided a preview of Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park and explained that every CRM request will be private unless and until the City makes the information public. He stated that other communities using Public Stuff include Philadelphia and New York. And Edina will be launching their app in the near future. He stated that Public Stuff is a centralized communication tool that will allow the City to track the status of every CRM request and report back to the citizen. Mr. Pires indicated that Public Stuff also allows for anonymous service requests to be entered into the system, but pointed out if a resident does not provide contact information, City staff will be unable to provide them with further communication regarding their CRM request. City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3a) Page 2 Title: Study Session Meeting Minutes June 9, 2014 Councilmember Sanger urged the City to include information during the rollout of the program about the confidentiality of information submitted by Public Stuff users. She also requested information about how the program works when issues or complaints are sent to Councilmembers. Mr. Pires advised that any issues or complaints received by Councilmembers can be forwarded to City staff and the issue or complaint will be entered into the system or Councilmembers can go directly to Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park and enter the issue or complaint. Mr. Huber stated that the public can select “private” when entering a CRM request and the City can also force the information to remain private. He provided an example of someone entering a weed/tall grass complaint and stated that each complainant will receive a customized email according to complaint type that explains the process for dealing with the complaint, e.g., a notice is sent to the property owner informing them they have seven days to resolve the issue and on the eighth day City staff will be prompted to check the status and if the issue is not resolved, the City’s next step would be to assign the issue to a local contractor and invoice the property owner for the cost. Councilmember Sanger asked if Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park could include a direct link that allows users to connect to their councilperson. Mr. Huber replied in the affirmative. He indicated that Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park includes a knowledge base for answering questions as well as instant translation of up to 22 languages. He reviewed the implementation schedule and advised that integration is scheduled during July and August with a soft launch scheduled on July 7th and a full launch around September 1st. Mr. Zwilling advised that information regarding the CRM application will be included in the August newsletter; in addition, staff is planning events and media outreach to announce the launch of the program, including guest columns, blogs, and public service announcements. Councilmember Spano suggested the City announce the program during National Night Out activities. Mayor Pro Tem Mavity asked if the City is purchasing or leasing the software. Mr. Pires replied that the City will pay $12,000 per year for this service and the program is housed on the Public Stuff servers. He acknowledged Council’s comments regarding privacy and confidentiality and making sure residents understand the implications of using Public Stuff/My St. Louis Park and assuring their privacy. He advised that further updates would be provided to Council after the July 7th soft launch. Park Restrooms Mr. Pires stated that Council previously requested that park restrooms remain open for longer hours and stated that adding the parks to the City’s fiber network will allow the City to manage the locks to keep restrooms open for longer periods of time as well as to add cameras for security and wi-fi. He reported that Browndale, Fern Hill, and Nelson Parks would have these amenities by the end of June. Councilmember Sanger asked if the restrooms would be open all day. Mr. Harmening agreed to provide Council with the restroom hours, adding that the parks will have a remote automatic locking system on the restroom doors City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3a) Page 3 Title: Study Session Meeting Minutes June 9, 2014 3. Southwest LRT Preliminary Design Plans – Continued Discussion Mr. Harmening reported that the City Attorneys for the Southwest LRT communities recently met with legal staff for the Met Council to discuss the municipal consent process and the Met Council made it clear that a resolution approving municipal consent with conditions would be effectively considered a denial of municipal consent. Mr. Scott advised that if a community provides municipal consent with conditions, this action is considered a denial or non-action. He explained that each city is required by statute to review the municipal consent plans and either approve or disapprove the municipal consent design plans and if a city does not act before the July 14th deadline, the municipal consent design plans are deemed approved unless an extension has been agreed to between a city and the Met Council. He further advised that if a city disapproves the municipal consent design plans, the statute provides that a city shall describe specific amendments to the plans that, if adopted, would cause a city to withdraw its disapproval. He stated that disapproval triggers a requirement for the Met Council to hold a subsequent hearing that would provide an opportunity for a disapproving municipality to present their views to the Met Council. He stated the statute also provides that the Met Council can conduct an independent study and may mediate and attempt to resolve the disagreement about the plans and then the Met Council would decide if it were going to make any changes to the plans to accommodate the objections presented by the disapproving municipality. Mr. Harmening stated that staff attended a meeting today with the city managers, community development directors, Mark Fuhrmann, and the Executive Director of the Met Council and discussed whether there was a way to memorialize in a legal document or Memorandum of Understanding an agreement to continue to work on unresolved items and Met Council representatives indicated they are willing to do that. He added the Met Council indicated they cannot guarantee to meet any requests but are willing to memorialize in writing that they are willing to look at a possible joint development project with St. Louis Park at the site of the proposed parking lot at Beltline as well as a willingness to consider grade separation of the trail and other City requested changes to the SWLRT plans. He stated that Mr. Fuhrmann indicated they would work out that agreement in advance but would not approve it until action is taken on municipal consent. Mr. Scott stated if a city disapproves the plans and specifies changes that need to be made to the plans, Met Council can continue to discuss the requested changes or mediate the issue and if Met Council agrees with the requested changes then no further action is required by a city. He explained that if the Met Council does not agree to make requested changes, the Met Council is required to conduct a hearing within sixty days from the time a city issues its disapproval where a city and anyone else wanting to be heard would present its position and Met Council would then make a decision about whether to make amendments to the plans. He indicated if Met Council says no changes will be made, then the municipal consent process is done and the project can proceed without a city’s approval. He noted there is nothing in the statute that talks about providing approval with conditions and the statute only states that a city can provide approval or disapproval with specified changes. Councilmember Sanger stated it appears the process boils down to how much contingency money is available and how those funds are going to be allocated for the various additions or modifications to the project. She stated the City does not yet have a sense of how much money will be available to St. Louis Park for some of the plan modifications it seeks and yet Met Council is asking for the City’s approval without providing this information before the municipal City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3a) Page 4 Title: Study Session Meeting Minutes June 9, 2014 consent vote. She felt that if the City disapproved the municipal consent design plans, it could potentially give the City more leverage to have specific discussions about what Met Council will or will not fund, as well as providing additional time during the process whereby the City would be able to review public information about requests from other communities and the costs associated with those requests. Mr. Locke stated it was the City’s understanding that the Met Council has indicated they are not paying for anything that has not already been included in the municipal consent plans and the only modifications that will be agreed to will be those that do not have an impact on the current budget and any other modifications are going to be treated as Locally Requested Capital Investments (LRCI), e.g., the grade separation of the bike trail. He added that as Met Council starts reducing the contingencies and funds become available, Met Council would use a priority system for deciding where to spend the contingency funds and could conceivably pay for some of the LRCIs. Councilmember Brausen felt that the City could craft a municipal consent resolution that includes an enforceable Memorandum of Understanding. He stated the City has laid out everything it expects and can argue later about who pays for the improvements. Councilmember Spano stated his preference would be to provide a clean approval of municipal consent with the proviso that the City’s prioritized list has to be negotiated with Met Council and Met Council needs to understand the City would not provide municipal consent without that list. Councilmember Sanger agreed with Councilmember Spano about giving Met Council upfront information about what the City wants and asking Met Council if it is willing to make commitments that the City can rely on. If they are not, then the City might have to pass a resolution of disapproval with conditions. The City should get Met Council’s take on that disapproval approach. She stated if Met Council is not willing to make commitments, she was not in favor of the Memorandum of Understanding approach. Councilmember Brausen agreed that the City needs to be assertive in advocating for these essential improvements and he would not vote in favor of municipal consent with these essential improvements. Councilmember Hallfin stated he would like to see the City give a clean approval, but there were certain things that the City needs to have done and will need to strategize and figure out the best way to get the most it can. Councilmember Lindberg stated he is currently leaning toward disapproval and specifying amendments to the plans, especially since Met Council wants the City to provide a clean approval without the City having any bargaining power to negotiate. Mayor Pro Tem Mavity stated it was not clear to her at this point whether providing a clean approval and Memorandum of Understanding gives the City more political capital to get what it wants versus providing a disapproval. She stated she would like further clarification on the statutory definition related to preliminary design plans and to see examples of how it has been applied in other cases. Mr. Scott agreed to look for further information and provide it to Council. City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3a) Page 5 Title: Study Session Meeting Minutes June 9, 2014 Councilmember Sanger stated that residents have lived with the uncertainty of a reroute for many years and suggested discussing the matter with Chair Haigh and asking her if there is any way the City can get this matter addressed as part of the municipal consent process. Councilmember Brausen spoke in favor of including an explicit statement in the municipal consent resolution that states it is the City’s understanding that the plans include abandoning the idea of rerouting freight rail. Councilmember Hallfin felt that Council could adopt a new resolution stating this Council’s position regarding a reroute and that this Council does not want to have to study the freight rail rerouting issue again. Councilmember Lindberg agreed that residents need relief from this issue and their sentiment on this issue was made clear at the public hearing. He felt strongly that Council needs to be clear and strong in its opinion on this issue and to put the issue to rest so that residents do not have to worry about it anymore. Councilmember Spano asked if the Council could pass a resolution or provide municipal consent with the understanding that Met Council would no longer be looking at a freight rail reroute in St. Louis Park and that no money would be expended on additional study. He also asked if this would carry any legal authority and whether Met Council could fulfill that type of promise. Mr. Scott stated he did not see any way the City could make that a condition of approval or to specify it as one of the items that would gain the City’s municipal consent approval, adding that he did not think Met Council has the ability to determine what happens in the future as far as a potential railroad relocation. He stated this issue could be part of a separate resolution as it relates to statements of intent. Councilmember Spano stated his overarching concern related to freight rail traffic is that Mn/DOT owns the State rail plan and not Met Council and he does not want this perceived as a promise to St. Louis Park residents that they do not have to worry about rerouting freight rail traffic in the future. Mr. Harmening agreed to speak with Chair Haigh about this issue as well. Mr. Locke stated that Met Council needs direction from the City about Beltline grade separation before the next level of design plans are started at the end of this year and explained that Met Council proposes to include a design with a grade separated crossing at Beltline as a bid alternative. When the bid comes back, the City can then decide whether to proceed with a grade separated crossing. He distributed a revised plan for the Beltline station area, noting that this design reflects an at grade crossing, but it could be changed to include a grade separated crossing of Beltline. The plans show a traffic signal at Lynn, elimination of the CSAH 25 frontage road and creation of a new “backage road.” Acquisition of an additional parcel of land as well as moving the location of the trail bridge crossing over freight rail, would be needed to accommodate the Lynn extension and the backage road. He indicated the SPO proposes to handle grade separating the trail from Beltline by extending the bridge crossing over the freight rail tracks to extend over Beltline Boulevard as well. The cost of extending the bridge would not be a project cost. The cost of this could be paid by another agency such as Three Rivers or by grants or unused project contingency funds or by the City. Mr. Locke stated the Beltline City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3a) Page 6 Title: Study Session Meeting Minutes June 9, 2014 Boulevard grade separation issue is a question of who pays for it, and the technical traffic analysis done by SEH does not provide support for grade separation sufficient for the City to forcefully argue that Met Council should be responsible for the cost. Councilmember Hallfin agreed with the concept of designing the Beltline crossing as both at grade and grade separated, adding that he continues to be in favor of pursuing a grade separated crossing. Mayor Pro Tem Mavity stated she has been an advocate for a grade separated crossing all along and felt that now is the time to plan for and construct the grade separated crossing. She indicated she was willing to remain open minded to follow the information that indicates a grade separated crossing is not needed at Beltline and unless she sees a stronger argument against a grade separated crossing, she continued to believe the City should pursue a grade separated design for Beltline. She also expressed continued concern that the entire station area planning process is not reflected in the plans, particularly related to pedestrian safety. Councilmember Spano stated his priorities include the two underpasses at Beltline and Xenwood and trail separations. Councilmember Sanger stated her #1 priority is the Beltline underpass and felt that the underpass was directly related to construction of light rail and should be part of the base plan with Met Council paying for it. She stated her #2 priority is the Xenwood underpass. Mr. Locke distributed revised plans for the Wooddale and Louisiana Avenue stations and noted that the SPO clarified the cost of the Xenwood underpass as $13 million. Councilmember Sanger asked if TIF funds would be available to pay for the Xenwood underpass. Mr. Locke replied that TIF funds could be a key source of money to pay for the underpass, adding that the analysis indicates the tax increment generated represents a substantial amount of money and could be used to pay for the underpass. Councilmember Hallfin stated that his most important priorities are the trail separations on Beltline and Wooddale and grade separation at Beltline. Councilmember Lindberg stated his first priority is the trail separation. He added he also felt that pedestrian access in the hospital area is important. Mayor Pro Tem Mavity stated that the bike trail was her first priority followed by grade separation at Beltline. Councilmember Sanger stated her top priorities include the Beltline underpass, Wooddale bike separation, and some type of separation at Xenwood. Councilmember Brausen stated his priorities include trail separation, the Xenwood underpass, and the Lynn Avenue extension. It was the consensus of the City Council to continue its discussion at a special study session on June 16th. City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3a) Page 7 Title: Study Session Meeting Minutes June 9, 2014 Communications/Meeting Check-In (Verbal) Mr. Harmening advised he recently met with the Executive Director of the YMCA-Twin Cities and a representative from the JCC and stated that the YMCA and JCC have asked if the City is interested in entering into a partnership on the community center project. He stated that staff will further pursue a partnership with the YMCA and JCC and provide updates to Council. He stated that the City of Minneapolis owns property at 40th and France and the City of Minneapolis has expressed continued interest in selling the property to St. Louis Park and Edina, adding that staff will be meeting with City of Minneapolis officials this week to further discuss the property. The meeting adjourned at 9:29 p.m. Written reports provided and documented for recording purposes only: 4. Blake Road/Aquila Avenue Corridor Study Update ______________________________________ ______________________________________ Nancy Stroth, City Clerk Anne Mavity, Mayor Pro Tem Meeting: City Council Meeting Date: July 7, 2014 Minutes: 3b UNOFFICIAL MINUTES CITY COUNCIL SPECIAL STUDY SESSION ST. LOUIS PARK, MINNESOTA JUNE 16, 2014 The meeting convened at 6:45 p.m. Councilmembers present: Mayor Jeff Jacobs, Tim Brausen, Steve Hallfin, Gregg Lindberg, Anne Mavity, Susan Sanger, and Jake Spano. Councilmembers absent: None. Staff present: City Manager (Mr. Harmening), City Attorney (Mr. Knetsch), Director of Community Development (Mr. Locke), Director of Engineering (Ms. Heiser), Planning and Zoning Supervisor (Ms. McMonigal), Marketing and Communications Coordinator (Mr. Zwilling), and Recording Secretary (Ms. Hughes). 1. Southwest LRT Preliminary Design Plans – Continued Discussion Mr. Harmening presented the staff report. Councilmember Sanger reported on the recent meeting with Met Council Chair Susan Haigh and stated that information was presented regarding the City’s priority of grade separating vehicle and pedestrian traffic at Beltline and Wooddale and they also discussed how to obtain Met Council’s commitment that no further studies of a potential reroute would be completed. She stated that Met Council acknowledged the City’s concerns regarding the grade separation issue but could not make any commitments at this time. She indicated that Met Council intends to send the base plan out for estimates with and without the grade separation and Met Council wanted to know the City’s priorities because as the project gets underway and some of the contingency funds are released, Met Council will begin assigning the contingency funds to projects that are important to the cities. She noted that Met Council also made it clear that projects with local funding would go to the head of the list but it was less clear whether projects with partial funding would go to the top of the list. She stated that Met Council also acknowledged the City’s concerns regarding a potential freight rail reroute but was not in a position to make a commitment that there would be no further studies. Instead, Met Council requested that if the City and Met Council enter into some kind of agreement or Memorandum of Understanding where the various milestones along the project path would be laid out, the reroute issue could perhaps be considered at that point. Councilmember Spano stated that the Minneapolis mediation was also discussed and Chair Haigh indicated this mediation would not impact St. Louis Park. He stated that with respect to the reroute issue, Met Council was informed that St. Louis Park would like something in writing that identifies, understands, and recognizes the reroute issue and the importance to the City of not having the issue raised again in the future and Mr. Fuhrmann informed them this project is dead if they run into an issue with the shallow tunnel and have to come back to a reroute. Councilmember Mavity stated that one of the milestones in the project is the application for Federal funding and Met Council’s response to the direction given by the FTA that freight rail be addressed by the SWLRT project. The SWLRT design plans represent the Met Council’s City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 3b) Page 2 Title: Special Study Session Meeting Minutes June 16, 2014 official response to the FTA on how to deal with freight rail as a part of this project so that the freight rail issue does not have to be revisited. She added that with respect to the contingency funds, Met Council was asked about the criteria it will use to allocate that money and Met Council’s response was that the criteria has not yet been determined. She stated the station area planning was also discussed and she requested that Met Council make sure the previous station area planning work be incorporated into the project. Councilmember Spano stated that Met Council was asked about assurance that if the City passes a clean municipal consent resolution followed by a Memorandum of Understanding that Met Council will work with the City on its priorities as contingency funds become available and it was his sense that Met Council was willing to work with the City on those priorities. Mr. Harmening suggested that Council review a draft municipal consent resolution and draft Memorandum of Understanding at its June 23rd study session. He stated that Mr. Fuhrmann made it clear that the Memorandum of Understanding will indicate that Met Council and the City will work diligently on grade separation of the trails and grade separation of Beltline but the Memorandum of Understanding will not promise to fund these improvements. Council discussed the Eden Prairie municipal consent resolution. Councilmember Brausen felt the City’s municipal consent resolution should be detailed similar to the Eden Prairie resolution and he would like the resolution to include the assumption about the freight rail reroute study being discontinued. Councilmember Lindberg agreed and stated his concern relates to how clearly the reroute issue is addressed in the resolution and/or Memorandum of Understanding. Mr. Knetsch advised that a Memorandum of Understanding is not binding and is intended to lay out the City’s priorities and ask Met Council to recognize and acknowledge those priorities in a signed document and agree to work with the City on those priorities. Councilmember Hallfin pointed out the City is being asked to provide clean municipal consent on 15% design plans and felt it was in the best interest of the City to grant municipal consent. Councilmember Mavity expressed continued concern that the station area plans have been ignored and requested that the Memorandum of Understanding include language that states that St. Louis Park and its residents have dedicated significant time, effort, and resources to the station area plans and that the City acknowledges the design plans represent 15% engineering and expects to continue to work with Met Council on the station area plans. The meeting adjourned at 7:17 p.m. ______________________________________ ______________________________________ Nancy Stroth, City Clerk Jeff Jacobs, Mayor Meeting: City Council Meeting Date: July 7, 2014 Minutes: 3c UNOFFICIAL MINUTES CITY COUNCIL MEETING ST.

He advised that the City’s MS4 program addresses six minimum control measures and seeks to eliminate sources of pollution that enter the storm system and increase sediment and phosphorous in the storm sewer system. He stated the City complies with NPDES by conducting inventories of its ponds and wetlands, frequent street sweeping, ongoing investigation of its stormwater system, implementing water treatment standards for new construction and redevelopment, implementing the compost disposal program, and partnering with various agencies including Clean Water Minnesota and the Bassett Creek and Minnehaha Creek watershed districts. He stated in August 2013, changes were made to the NPDES program that require the City to update its illicit discharge ordinance, identify enforcement response procedures, update its erosion control ordinance, revise stormwater treatment standards, and evaluate its stormwater pollution prevention control measures. He then introduced Mr. Erick Francis, the City’s new Water Resource Manager.

He indicated the City is also seeking additional community involvement and opportunities for public input during project planning. Mayor Jacobs opened the public hearing. Ms. Wendy Skinner, 3336 Huntington Avenue, stated her main concern was about water level retention on Bass Lake. She stated that Bass Lake does not provide a hospitable habitat for nesting waterfowl or amphibians and does not have a healthy and diverse ecosystem. Ms. Barbara Aslakson, 2615 Xylon Avenue, stated the League of Women Voters supports specific water resource programs and policies that reflect the interrelationship of water quality, quantity, ground water, and surface water that address the potential depletion of water supplies. She stated the League also supports measures to reduce water pollution and supports policies to achieve water quality essential for maintaining species population and diversity as well as supporting stringent controls to protect the quality of drinking water including protection of watersheds. Mayor Jacobs closed the public hearing. Councilmember Mavity requested that staff’s presentation be made available on the City’s website and encouraged staff to include up to date information about this topic on the City’s website, including the 2014 initiatives.

POLICY CONSIDERATION: Does the Council wish to appoint additional Election Judges? BACKGROUND: On March 17, 2014, Council adopted Resolution No. 14-046 appointing 117 judges for the Special Elections of April 29 and May 13. Since that time, several new judges have been recruited to serve at the polls for the State Primary and General Elections. The names of those individuals are being presented for approval with this resolution. This brings the total number of Election Judges to over 160 serving for the State Elections. In an effort to accommodate judges unable to work the entire 15-18 hour day, some of our judges will be working in half-day shifts. The City Clerk staff is required to administer a minimum of 2 hours of training to each person serving as an Election Judge and an additional 1 hour of training for those serving as Chair and Co-Chair Judges. St. Louis Park will again be working with the city’s two senior high schools to recruit Student Election Judges for the State General Election. Another resolution will be presented to Council in September to appoint additional Election Judges and Student Judges for the General Election. We are expecting a good voter turnout, and every effort is being made to provide for an adequate number of judges to serve the public and facilitate the voting process. The number of voters already registered in St. Louis Park is 28,709, and we are expecting many more to register to vote at the polls at the Primary and General Elections. FINANCIAL OR BUDGET CONSIDERATION: Election expenses for judges are included in the adopted 2014 budget. Election Judge hourly pay is as follows: $8.42 Regular Judges; $9.44 Co-Chair Judges; $9.44 Absentee Ballot Board; $9.44 Co-Chair Judges; $9.95 Chair Judges. VISION CONSIDERATION: St. Louis Park is committed to being a connected and engaged community through recruitment and training of community members to serve as Election Judges.

Project No. 4014-2000 RECOMMENDED ACTION: • Motion to designate G.L. Contracting Inc. the lowest responsible bidder and authorize execution of a contract with the firm in the amount of $975,630.97 for the Connect the Park! - Project No. 4014-2000. • Motion to Adopt Resolutions authorizing installation of “No Parking” restrictions on segments of Joppa Avenue and 39th Street. POLICY CONSIDERATION: The proposed improvements are consistent with the City’s Connect the Park! sidewalk, trail and bikeway system plan. SUMMARY: A total of one (1) bid was received for this project. A summary of the bid results is as follows: CONTRACTOR BID AMOUNT G.L Contracting, Inc $975,630.97 Staff recommends that a contract be awarded to the firm in the amount of $975,630.97. While there was only one bidder, G.L. Contracting, Inc is a reputable contractor that has worked for the City before. We have discussed this project with the other plan holders. We feel that the bid is fair, and within the estimated budget for the project. As a result, staff recommends award at this time. FINANCIAL OR BUDGET CONSIDERATION: This project was planned for and included in the City’s adopted Capital Improvement Program with an estimated budget of $1,087,900. Staff believes that even with only receiving one bid the project is necessary and justified. This project will be funded using General Obligation bonds for sidewalk construction and the Capital Replacement Fund for fiber optic construction. Additional funding details are provided in the Discussion section of the report. VISION CONSIDERATION: St. Louis Park is committed to being a connected and engaged community. SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS: Discussion Joppa Avenue No Parking Resolution 39th Street No Parking Resolution Prepared by: Jack Sullivan, Senior Engineering Project Manager Reviewed by: Deb Heiser, Engineering Director Approved by: Nancy Deno, Deputy City Manager/HR Director City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 4d) Page 2 Title: Bid Tab: Connect the Park! - Project No. 4014-2000 DISCUSSION BACKGROUND: Bids were received on June 24, 2014 for the Connect the Park! project. The 2014 construction season will be the first year of implementing the City’s Connect the Park! sidewalk and trail initiative. It includes the construction of sidewalk on Joppa Avenue, Louisiana Avenue, Oxford Street and 39th Street. Along with these larger segments of sidewalk Council directed staff to include some gaps segments of sidewalk on Huntington Avenue and Inglewood Avenue north of 39th Street. An advertisement for bids was published in the St. Louis Park Sun-Sailor on May 29 and June 5, 2014. In addition, plans and specifications are noticed on the City Website and are made available electronically via the internet by our vendor Quest CDN.com Email notification was provided to five minority associations and final printed plans were available for viewing at iSqFt and The Blue Book Building & Construction Network Planrooms and at City Hall. Fifteen contractors/vendors purchased plan sets with one Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) identifying themselves as a subcontractor. No Parking Resolutions Segments of Joppa Avenue and 39th Street are proposed to be narrowed to facilitate the construction of the sidewalk within the existing right of way and to achieve minimum driveway lengths. These narrowed roadway segments will need to be posted “no parking” on the same side of the road as the sidewalk is to be installed. This information was discussed with the neighborhood during the public process. Funding Details Based on the low bid received, cost and funding details are revised as follows: Revenues Connect the Park! (Sidewalks) $881,890.89 Capital Replacement Fund (Fiber Optic) $ 93,740.10 Total $975,630.97 Construction Timeline: Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-July and is anticipated to be completed by the end of October. The contractor will be starting work on Joppa Avenue and 39th Street as the first segments in order to complete the majority of that work prior to the start of the school year since both of these segments are near schools.

POLICY CONSIDERATION: The proposed action is consistent with policy previously established by the City Council. SUMMARY: Kimberly Stordahl, owner of the single family residence at 2721 Louisiana Avenue South, has requested the City to authorize the repair of the water service line for her home and assess the cost against the property in accordance with the City’s special assessment policy. The City requires the repair of service lines to promote the general public health, safety and welfare within the community. The special assessment policy for the repair or replacement of water or sewer service lines for existing homes was adopted by the City Council in 1996. This program was put into place because sometimes property owners face financial hardships when emergency repairs like this are unexpectedly required. Plans and permits for this service line repair work were completed, submitted, and approved by City staff. The property owner hired a contractor and repaired the water service line in compliance with current codes and regulations. Based on the completed work, this repair qualifies for the City’s special assessment program. The property owner has petitioned the City to authorize the water service line repair and special assess the cost of the repair. The total eligible cost of the repair has been determined to be $7,200.00. FINANCIAL OR BUDGET CONSIDERATION: The City has funds in place to finance the cost of this special assessment.

POLICY CONSIDERATION: Does the City Council wish to continue participation in the CDBG program? SUMMARY: CDBG funds are US Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds distributed annually through Hennepin County. The national objectives of the CDBG program are to benefit low and moderate-income persons, prevention or elimination of slum or blight and/or to meet a particular urgent community development need. Each year the City must submit its proposed use of the allocation to Hennepin County and hold a public hearing. The 2014 proposed use of CDBG funds reflects the City’s priorities to preserve existing housing and increase affordable ownership opportunities. CDBG funds allow cities discretion (within the HUD guidelines) to fund projects that meet the national low income objectives and the needs of cities. The City was notified by Hennepin County that HUD released Notice CPD-13-04 dated April 25, 2014 which requires certain changes to the Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) for participation in the CDBG program for 2015-2017. In addition Hennepin County is making changes to the subrecipient contract language for awards starting in FY 2015. These changes require a certified City resolution approving the new/amended JCA.

The revised 2015-2017 JCA reflects the following changes: 1) The addition of language stating that the agreement covers not only the CDBG Entitlement program and the HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) program, but also the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program. 2) The addition of a provision that a unit of general local government may not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer all or any portion of such funds to another such metropolitan city, urban county, unit of general local government, or Indian tribe, or insular area that directly or indirectly receives CDBG funds in exchange for any other funds, credits or non-Federal considerations, but must use such funds for activities eligible under Title I of the Act. This new requirement is contained in the FY2014 HUD appropriation bill. 3) Clarification of Fair Housing language. Hennepin County is also updating contract term language in the annual CDBG subrecipient contracts for awards starting in FY 2015. Planning and Administrative cost language has also been expanded to reflect the County’s growing costs associated with compliance and timeliness monitoring and the potential need for future increases within the term of the JCA. Hennepin County will be evaluating their administrative costs association with the CDBG program before determining if there will be an increase in administrative costs for FY2015. These changes require a certified City resolution approving the new/amended JCA.

POLICY CONSIDERATION: Does the Council wish to amend the PUD to reflect the existing front setback of 28.1 feet instead of the approved 30.0 feet for the Springhill Suites Hotel? SUMMARY: CSM MPLS WEST, LLC (Applicant) is requesting a minor amendment to allow a minimum front yard setback of 28.0 feet instead of 30.0 feet for the existing Springhill Suites Hotel. The PUD was approved in June of 2000 and the hotel was constructed immediately after. The hotel was approved with a 30.0 foot front setback along Zarthan Ave., and a 13.7 foot setback along the side property line adjacent to Wayzata Blvd. The majority of the building faces Wayzata Blvd with only one corner projecting toward the front lot line (Zarthan Ave.). It is this corner that is 28.1 feet from the property line instead of the approved 30.0 feet. Amending the PUD to allow a front setback of 28.0 feet will bring this property into compliance with the PUD. The hotel is in the process of being sold, and this non-conformity came to light during the due diligence of the sale. The future owners are asking that the PUD be amended so that the hotel complies with the PUD. Changes to setbacks within the PUD can be handled through the PUD minor amendment process instead of a variance process. If approved, the 28.0 foot setback will apply to the approved building only, and does not authorize future expansions to be 28.0 feet from the front lot line. As shown on the attached site plan, the proposed 28.0 foot front setback is consistent with the minimum setbacks allowed for the other four buildings in the PUD that also front on Zarthan Ave. The building immediately to the south of the hotel is located 27.9 feet from the front lot line. The townhomes farther south are located 20.0 feet from the front lot line. FINANCIAL OR BUDGET CONSIDERATION: Not applicable. VISION CONSIDERATION: Not applicable.

POLICY CONSIDERATION: Does the Council agree to proceed with a legal review of the transaction using counsel with telecommunications expertise? SUMMARY: On June 18, 2014, the City received formal notice from Comcast that they plan a series of transactions that affect the St. Louis Park Cable TV franchise. A cable TV franchise transfer is guided by State and Federal law, and the City has the authority to evaluate the legal, technical & financial capability of the franchisee. The city must provide notice of intent to conduct such due diligence by July 18th, 2014. The Telecommunications Advisory Commission held a special meeting June 25th to review the formal notice from Comcast, and they approved a recommendation to the City Council to participate in a joint financial audit of Midwest Cable conducted by the Minnesota Association of Community Telecommunications Administrators (MACTA). In addition, the Commission recommended that the City complete its own legal review of the transaction using counsel with telecommunications expertise. FINANCIAL OR BUDGET CONSIDERATION: The financial and legal reviews are estimated to cost $13,500 to $14,500. The initial source of funding will be the Cable TV Fund; however, reasonable reimbursement of costs will be sought from the cable providers. VISION CONSIDERATION: Not applicable. SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS: Discussion Prepared by: Reg Dunlap, Civic TV Coordinator Prepared by: Jamie Zwilling, Communications & Marketing Coordinator Reviewed by: Clint Pires, Chief Information Officer Approved by: Nancy Deno, Deputy City Manager/HR Director City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 4k) Page 2 Title: Comcast Franchise Transfer DISCUSSION BACKGROUND: On June 18, 2014, the City received formal notice from Comcast that they plan a series of transactions that affect the St. Louis Park franchise. A Cable TV franchise transfer is guided by State and Federal law, and the City has the authority to evaluate the legal, technical & financial capability of the franchisee. What’s the City’s role in the Comcast franchise transfer? Evaluate the legal, technical and financial capability of franchisee/transferee Midwest Cable, formerly known as SpinCo. Is any action required or could the City choose to do nothing? If the City takes no action, the transfer goes through automatically. However, the city would then waive the right to perform any due diligence, and there are concerns about whether the new company will have the resources to manage its systems successfully. If we take any actions, when must we act? The first step for the city is to determine if Comcast’s transfer materials are satisfactorily complete. If the city deems Comcast’s transfer materials incomplete, the city must notify Comcast that within 30 days of receipt of the cable TV franchise transfer. An attorney typically reviews the transfer materials and prepares this notice letter. An initial review of the materials by staff raises many questions regarding the transfer, so staff recommends that the city request more information from Comcast. These questions include, but are not limited to: • How many of the Comcast staff would be employed by Midwest Cable? • Will Midwest Cable be able to continue current operations seamlessly? • Will Midwest Cable be able to keep pace with the innovation of new applications, products and services? • How will customer service call centers be changed? • Charter will manage Midwest Cable: Will the terms and conditions of the management agreement put Midwest Cable at a disadvantage? • Will Charter favor the properties they own to the detriment of the Midwest Cable properties? • Why does the franchisee need to change to Comcast Minnesota then to Midwest Cable? • Comcast shareholders will own two thirds of Midwest Cable. How is that determined? The deadline to notify Comcast that the transfer materials are incomplete is July 18. Within 120 days of the initial transfer notice, the City must approve or deny the transfer unless additional materials are needed to make the decision. Are there any franchise violations to resolve before the franchise transfer? During a normal transfer process, any franchise compliance issues are addressed, and resolved. The TAC and staff remain concerned that Comcast’s poor telephone customer service performance in the last year may not be meeting federal guidelines. Thus far, the Commission City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 4k) Page 3 Title: Comcast Franchise Transfer has obtained samples of Comcast call center records that were available, which didn’t include calls from St. Louis Park. A possible condition of the transfer could be a written commitment from Midwest Cable to provide call center records that prove its compliance with federal guidelines for callers from St. Louis Park. What recommendations did staff provide to the TAC? The primary decision before the Commission was whether to do nothing or hire expert assistance needed to do a thorough review of the transfer. A thorough review includes an external review of the legal details of the two transfers. The two transfers that will take place include an initial transfer completed during Comcast’s reorganization, and a second transfer to Midwest Cable following regulatory approvals. City Attorney Joel Jamnik recommends St. Louis Park partnering with one of the attorneys specializing in telecommunications matters to save costs. The City has hired Brian Grogan of Moss & Barnett several times over the years, most recently to assist with the 2006 franchise renewal and transfer from Time Warner Cable to Comcast. Mr. Grogan represents the neighboring Southwest Cable Commission, which includes Edina, Hopkins, Eden Prairie, Richfield and Minnetonka. Given the past relationship with Mr. Grogan, and the desire to expedite the review, staff recommends hiring him. Staff asked for an estimate for St. Louis Park to partner with his other clients in the legal review, and the estimate is $7,500, which includes one in-person presentation to City Council or the Telecommunications Commission to explain his report. He points out that it’s possible that the franchisee could pay for the legal review; some older franchises required that, and some cable companies do this routinely. St. Louis Park’s franchise doesn’t require reimbursement, so it’s unknown if any of these costs can be recovered. A thorough review also includes a respected accounting firm with experience with cable television providers accounting systems to do a financial review of Midwest Cable, the eventual franchisee. Commissioner Toby Keeler is aware of MACTA’s coalition-building efforts to hire Garth Ashpaugh and Dick Treich to do the financial review for $6,000 to $7,000 for each Minnesota franchise authority, depending on how many franchise authorities participate. In a conference call with about 15 representatives from various MACTA cities, the consensus was that most would partner in this effort for these reasons: • Garth Ashpaugh and Dick Treich are nationally recognized experts in the financial review of franchise fees and cable systems, and have been strong advocates to assist local government in disputes with cable operators. • There is little time to conduct a request for bid process, since a thorough financial review takes several months and cities must act within 120 days. • MACTA will coordinate the contract with Ashpaugh and Treich as a benefit for members, which allows cities to participate without violating any state laws. • Partnering with MACTA members allows more leverage if the report reveals incomplete answers. This may allow for an improvement in some of the terms or conditions for transfer. Staff recommends partnering with MACTA and the other municipalities in this review. City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 4k) Page 4 Title: Comcast Franchise Transfer Should the City conduct a technical review of Comcast? There has been very little discussion on MACTA conference calls about doing a technical review, partially because the legal and financial areas are more uncertain. Comcast proposes to divest all of the Minnesota properties to Midwest Cable, so that presumably means all of the infrastructure in St. Louis Park and the state of Minnesota. Comcast is an industry leader and the largest cable television provider in the United States, offering a wide range of advanced services. In the last year they have rolled out the X1 home viewer interface and apps for tablets and smart phones to interface with their DVRs and converters. Staff does have some concern over the technological capabilities of Midwest Cable to keep up with emerging technologies, but none that staff believes warrant a separate technical audit at this time. There are other MACTA members involved in the renewal process with Comcast, and perhaps some of them have conducted technical reviews of the system that could be shared. What is the impact on franchise fees? Franchise fees are significant revenue for the City of St. Louis Park, and enable ParkTV to cover hundreds of events in the City every year. Staff expects that franchise fees will level off at some future point and slowly drop by less than 5% per year for several years when over-the-top video becomes more popular. Franchise fees have increased for three years in a row after leveling off during the recession. 2008 $585,799.92 2009 $581,928.28 2010 $581,472.92 2011 $594,662.35 2012 $618,375.25 2013 $642,141.71 Comcast has developed new technologies to add features for their cable customers, like being able to use a smart phone as a remote control or to watch content stored On Demand on Comcast servers. As a result, Comcast is retaining the vast majority of their cable customers despite competition from over-the-top, internet delivered video services like Hulu, Apple TV and Roku. Staff is unable to predict if Midwest Cable will continue to add features for customers. What will be the impact on customers if the franchise transfer is approved? • The company name would change, and over time, policies would change • Email addresses would change • Login credentials to check billing statements online or check email remotely would change (new user name and password) • Customers might have to reapply for direct bill pay • Telephone numbers would not change PRESENT CONSIDERATIONS: Does the City Council wish to participate in legal and financial reviews of Midwest Cable? NEXT STEPS: 1. If approved by the City Council, an attorney representing the city will notify Comcast of the legal and financial reviews. 2. Staff will partner with MACTA on a financial review and retain counsel for a legal review. 3. City staff and counsel will meet with the Council to report the findings of the reviews.

POLICY CONSIDERATION: Does the City Council, having reviewed the plans for the Southwest Light Rail Transit (SWLRT) route to be located in St. Louis Park approve the plans? SUMMARY: Attached to this report for City Council adoption are two versions of a proposed resolution of approval for the SWLRT project design plans. One highlights the changes in the proposed resolution compared to the draft resolution discussed at the June 23rd City Council Study Session. The second is a clean final version of the proposed resolution. The proposed resolution incorporates the changes discussed at the June 23rd Study Session and has been reviewed by the City Attorney. Adoption and submittal of this resolution to the Met Council by July 14, 2014 will satisfy the Minnesota State Statute requirements for City review and approval or disapproval of the SWLRT design plans within 45 days of the Met Council SWLRT public hearing on the design plans held May 29, 2014. FINANCIAL OR BUDGET CONSIDERATION: Not applicable. VISION CONSIDERATION: St. Louis Park is committed to being a connected and engaged community. SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS: Discussion Resolution Approving Physical Design Plans Resolution Approving Physical Design Plans w/ Changes Highlighted Prepared by: Kevin Locke, Community Development Director Approved by: Nancy Deno, Deputy City Manager/HR Director City Council Meeting of July 7, 2014 (Item No. 8a) Page 2 Title: Southwest LRT Municipal Consent Resolution DISCUSSION BACKGROUND: Since the Met Council submitted the physical design component of the design plans for the SWLRT project April 22, 2014 the City has carefully reviewed and evaluated the SWLRT plans. A public hearing on the plans was held May 19, 2014 and the City Council has discussed the project design and a potential resolution approving the SWLRT plans at several City Council Study Sessions over roughly the past eight weeks. Most recently a draft resolution approving municipal consent was discussed at the June 23, 2014 study session. The proposed resolution approving municipal consent is attached to this staff report. It incorporates changes to the draft resolution discussed at the June 23rd study session. The highlighted version of the proposed resolution shows the changes made compared to the June 23rd version of the resolution. The proposed resolution approving the SWLRT design plans re-states the City of St. Louis Park’s commitment to and the importance of the SWLRT project for our City and the region. It specifically states the City’s support for the fact that the Met Council approved design plan continues freight trains along the Bass Lake Spur into Minneapolis and does not reroute them to the MNS line in St. Louis Park. The resolution acknowledges the hard work and active involvement of the community throughout the long SWLRT design process. It also acknowledges that while adoption of this resolution is an important milestone in the SWLRT project design process, it is by no means the end of the process. It is estimated that the project design is 15% complete. There is much more work yet to be done and many issues yet to be fully resolved. The resolution specifically lists key issues that will need further design work in coming months and states our on-going commitment and expectation to work closely with the Met Council, its staff and consultants to satisfactorily resolve the outstanding design issues. Approval of the attached resolution and submittal of the resolution to the Met Council by July 14, 2014 will satisfy Minnesota State Statute requirements for the City to approve or disapprove the design plans within 45 days of the Met Council’s Public Hearing on the SWLRT plans. The Met Council’s hearing was May 29, 2014. The Preliminary Design Plans can be found at www.stlouispark.org/webfiles/file/community- dev/swlrt_plans.pdf.
