Agenda Advisory for December 17, 2018: Minnesota Valley State Trail Update
Officials from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) confirmed this morning that the Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) for the Minnesota Valley State Trail is complete and the record of decision signed. This action provides the green light to award the contract for construction of the first segment of the State Trail. The first segment of the trail will be constructed in 2019 and 2020 on city-owned land between Lyndale Avenue and the Xcel Energy powerline corridor.
The award of the contract means that an agreement between the City of Bloomington and the DNR related to trail funding, which was to be considered on December 17, 2018, will not be necessary. As such, this item will be removed from the December 17, 2018 agenda.
