Lanesboro City Council Report: Alley paving to continue


Fri, Sep 24th, 2004
Posted in Features

The Lanesboro City Council opted to move forward on the paving of the alley south of the Church Hill Coop property at their regular meeting Monday, September 20th. When Northcountry developer Jeff Allman last visited the council on May 3rd, he said the company didn’t plan to use the alley at all. He went on to say, “We’ll design around it and get along.” As recently as last Thursday Allman contacted PWD Andy Drake and asked if a roof drainpipe could be run under the alley. On Friday, city administrator Bobbie Torgerson received an email from Allman asking the council to delay blacktopping the alley until spring. Included in that email was a new site plan changing the alley’s location and needing a lot of fill with the alley’s move to the south.

The price tag for the alley pavement is between $3,000 and $4,000. The council felt that the alley was for the good of the city (the public). Since the city already has a contractual agreement with the blacktopping company and old pavement has been removed in preparation for paving, the council decided to continue with the alley paving as planned. The council noted that the Bethlehem Church was relying on the alley for access to their parking lot and the council likewise had relied on the plan presented by Allman in May.

Skateboard Concerns

The council next turned their attention to complaints about skateboarding. City attorney Tom Manion researched the city ordinances and found two ordinances regulating obstructions on sidewalks. One referred to “placing impediments on sidewalks,” and the other referred to “rendering passage dangerous on any public highway or right-of-way.” Council member Jerome Halverson recounted his experience with a skateboarder using the street as though he had the same right to the road as a vehicle. The council was concerned for the safety and welfare of the boarders as well as the public. From the audience, Marge Drake commented she feels the city needs to be more involved in skateboarding beyond merely giving the boarders permission to create a skateboard park. Drake opined that if the group got a park, that’s where they should be with their boards. The council decided to gather more information before making any decision.
