Chatfield to Join Rochester Area Economic Development, Inc.

Fri, Jul 12th, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

By Karen Reisner

Chris Giesen, Community and Economic Development Associates (CEDA), addressed the Chatfield City Council at its July 8 meeting about the advantages of joining Rochester Area Economic Development. It is a regional non-profit organization made up of business leaders in the area that focus on regional planning. The Chatfield EDA had recommended the city join the organization.

Giesen noted that if the city of Chatfield joins, they will have a voting seat at the table, be able to better make network connections, and participate in regional planning discussions for growth. For example, the Destination Medical Center (DMC) plans are expected to spur regional growth.

Membership will cost the city $2,800 annually. The members meet monthly or every other month. Mayor Russ Smith maintained it was a good idea to be a member. Chatfield was previously a member of the organization several decades in the past. The city can determine on an annual basis if continuing their membership is worth the cost. Councilors unanimously approved joining the organization.

Other Business In Brief

• The second consideration and the publishing of the Ordinance 408 zoning revisions were approved. The revisions are being made to develop consistency in the zoning district for post-framed construction.

• Councilors approved the sale of one parcel of Outlot B of the Donahoe subdivision to Gerald and Maureen Barry for $1,192. City Clerk Joel Young said the rest of the lots will not be sold at least at this time. City Attorney Fred Suhler was authorized to draw up the real estate papers necessary for the sale.

• Young said the Rochester sales tax agreement was reaffirmed last month. The council will act on the agreement at the next meeting. The first half of the proceeds could be available as early as the end of July.

• Volunteers are needed for watering the city flower baskets.

• Young reported that the Public Works Committee has been discussing how to pay for blacktopping city roads in West Chatfield. The discussion over the last few months has moved on from if they should be blacktopped to how improving the roads could be financed.
