Lanesboro looks at arts campus project


Fri, Jul 11th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Government

Courtney Bergey attended the Lanesboro City Council meeting on July 7 to speak to the council about the Arts Campus Project.

Bergey works for the Lanesboro Arts Council, and they have been working on a plan that will create better signage around town and on the bike trails for visitors. They have been working in conjunction with the Park Board and taking into account the Chamber’s Strategic Plan and the City’s 20/20 plan to reach their goals.

The Arts Council has been doing a lot of fundraising for this project and they have received grants. They worked with a signage consultant from the Twin Cities who helped develop a plan for the area.

According to Bergey, there will be a kiosk with trail information in the parking lot, and it will take up two parking spaces. There will also be photo poetry signs with poems from local people attached to light posts. An information sign will be placed near the bike trail in the downtown area, and a sign near the historic walking bridge that will include the history of the bridge.

“We’ve been working on these concepts the past year,” said Bergey. “There will be no cost to the city, we did all the fundraising.”

Bergey added they want to make sure to get the project done soon before the deadline for the grant money. The council approved the project. Work will be finished within the next month before the September 1 deadline.

Dam Project

Dave Bubany was at the meeting to discuss further options for funding the dam project.

The city could use a tax abatement bond to fund the remainder of the cost, they could ask the voters for a referendum, or get a variation of the utility related General Obligation Bonds.

If utilities were increased to fund the project, monthly utility rates would increase significantly. If the levy was increased, the property taxes on a home worth $100,000 would increase $20 a month. A bond for the remaining amount of $1.75 million, at an interest rate of four percent paid over 20 years would result in a yearly payment of $129,000. None of these options seem likely for the city.

The DNR did give the city an extension on the grant money, which gives the city until June 2015 to come up with ideas to fund the project.
