Rushford City Council Report: Becker Subdivision a step closer to development


Fri, Apr 15th, 2005
Posted in Features

RUSHFORD Henry (Stumpy) Becker appeared with his engineer from Otomo Engineering before the Rushford City Council Monday, April 11, 2005 to present the preliminary plans for a subdivision to be located at the base of the bluff in Brooklyn. A variance request was necessary for three of the four proposed lots. With a total property area of 6.59 acres, only 1.93 acres is actually proposed for development because of the slope of the land. The street for the development, possibly to be named Novlan Drive, would have a turn-around at a T intersection. The turn-around would be a no parking area to ensure space for traffic. Both the fire chief and the public works director checked the plans and, at their suggestion, the streets were widened for better service from the original plan. The planned development also gives locations of the homes placed away from the base of the bluff in order not to disturb the bluff.When council members asked if there were any issues with utilities, they were informed that since the development was at the preliminary stages at this time and curbing, water and sewer had not been looked into yet. The council accepted the proposed development; now Becker will take the next steps for the development. RINTekAn exuberant Kevin Klungvedt, president of RINTek, Rushfords nanotechnology company, stopped in to share a press release with the council. Reading from his printed press release Klungvedt declared, The Rushford Institute For Technology is for real; were on our way!

RINTek plans to develop and equip a laboratory for research in the city. Minnesota State CollegeSoutheast Technical will offer a nanotechnology course and Rushford-Peterson Schools will offer a grad standard in nanotechnology. An additional bill in Congress seeks more funding for RINTek and the company plans to seek private funding as well. Financial independence is planned for the project by 2009.The council commended Klungvedt on his hard work and congratulated him on his success. Nanotechnology, the direct manipulation of particles at the molecular and atomic level, can be developed anywhere and can bring high-quality jobs t .....
