If the Wednesday Council meeting was a 19th-century promotional ad for Cottage Grove, that’s what it might have said.
Set to consider Resolution 2020072 to make a preliminary plat for Settler’s Bluff with 155 detached townhomes Wednesday May 19, the Cottage Grove Council also considered plans for a 93-lot development of single-family homes called Hawthorne Pines as dated May 7, 2021 and prepared by Alliant Engineering. Settler’s Bluff, if built, would be on a formerly agricultural land parcel, while Hawthorne Pines would be located in the corner created by 65th Street South and Geneva Avenue, also a former agricultural parcel. The preliminary plat for Hawthorne Pines was approved March 18, 2020.
Also included on the Council agenda for May 19 was a building to potentially be constructed between the four ball diamonds at a cost of $498,378.30 as tabulated across all bids. Should the Council approve the project, construction would begin in June of 2021 and be completed by September of the same year.
Making up the half-million dollar total were bids from DSM Excavating for $42,790, Steenberg-Watrud Construction for $146,060, Klem and Son Construction for $26,600, AJ Alberts Plumbing for $50,652, and Gephart Electric for $53,713.
Finally, and as a “response to Cottage Grove’s growth,” the Council was due to look at the final master plan for East Ravine Parks and Trails, with the presentation “reflecting the direction of the Commission” while using Ravine Parkway at the organizing principle for neighborhoods.
The meeting outcome was unknown at press time.
