Lotus Drive Reconstruction

Lotus Drive Reconstruction Plans
Lotus Drive Construction Newsletter April 20, 2018

The master development agreement entered into by the City of Minnetrista and Woodland Cove in April 2012 provided, among other things, for the construction of certain improvements to Louts Drive in conjunction with the 1st phase of the development that abuts Lotus Drive or in which the alignment of Lotus Drive is changed.  That requirement was triggered at the time of Woodland Cove 2nd Addition, but the developer, Woodland Cove, and the City agreed to postpone the Lotus Drive project until Woodland Cove 3rd Addition in order to allow for coordination with other public improvements to be constructed in the vicinity.  The developer recognizes that the Lotus Drive project must be completed in conjunction with the completion of other public improvements.  The City entered into a construction agreement with Mattamy Minneapolis LLC which outlines the responsibilties of the parties involved with respect to the improvements.

Along with the construction agreement, the City entered into a cooperative agreement with the Metropolitan Council (MCES), whereby the City, through the developer (Mattamy), would also reconstruct certain portions of the MCES force main located along Lotus Drive.
