1. Approve Minutes from September 5 Meeting
2. Essentia Health Crosswalk
Essentia Health has requested a flashing pedestrian sign at their 32nd Ave and 32nd St location. The sign will be push button activated and solar powered. April moved to approve with the conditions that Essentia will pay for the sign materials upfront and that the city will own and maintain the sign. The city will offer to special assess the installation cost. Ben Dow seconded the motion. Motion was approved.
3. Other Business
Jim Ohnstad from OK Tire located on 23rd St S asked if the city would remove the “No Parking from November to April” restrictions on 1st Ave S in order for his employees to park on the street. Ben Dow volunteered to go out to the site and visit with Jim. The recommendation was to wait and see how the winter goes with the new restrictions. There was a consensus that proper parameters and documentation are needed in order to start granting waivers.
With no other business the meeting was adjourned at 4:30pm.
