Council deals with art commission business, creates parking study groupBy John TorgrimsonMonday, April 30, 2001

The Lanesboro Art Center Commission has identified a preferred site to locate the proposed Regional Art Center. The commission voted unanimously to investigate purchasing the Cheese Factory site on Parkway Avenue, which includes the Cheese Factory, White Front Café and vacant lot to the north.

Council member Hal Cropp, who is a representative on the art commission, briefed the city council at their Monday, April 16 meeting.

Cropp told the council that the site was selected for a number of reasons, including its proximity to the St. Mane Theatre. He noted the fact that two of the three properties were available for sale, and that the amount of space met the square footage requirements for the center. Cropp also said that the commission believed that development of the site would help revitalize commercial activity in that part of the downtown.

While the city council took no formal action regarding the Cheese Factory site, the council did approve spending $7,500 to retain the law firm of Leonard, Street and Deinard to do preliminary legal work regarding the three properties. The firm will look into ownership and liability issues and identify any land-use, zoning , and environmental concerns. The council also approved hiring George Sutton and Associates for $6,100 to commission schematic designs of the art center.

"Many people are concerned about the scope and scale of the art center," Cropp said. "The Art Commission believed that it was important that the public be able to see how this will look in downtown Lanesboro."

These appropriations will come out of the $100,000 grant the city received from the Minnesota Legislature to do pre-design work related to a Regional Arts Center.
Parking

Doug Baker came before the city council to discuss the problem of parking in Lanesboro. Baker, who lives on Kenilworth Avenue, said that parking by bikers is creating problems for residents in a three block area near the downtown. Baker said that it is especially hard for older folks who have to walk uphill to get to their homes.

"It shouldn’t be unreasonable for people to expect to be able to park in front of their own homes," Baker told the council.

The council agreed that parking is a problem and noted that earlier attempts to solve this problem have failed.
