While city staff is still in the process of reviewing Ron Clark Construction & Design's for the proposed Pillsbury Commons development, the city has outlined a tentative schedule for after its review is complete.
All the following information was taken from a Richfield City Council memo, dated May 10, 2012 and signed by Richfield City Manager Steve Devich.
The Richfield Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) will consider a motion to schedule a public hearing to consider the sale of the mortuary site, 211 76th St. W.
The Richfield Planning Commission will hold two public hearings, one regarding the rezoning and planned unit development application and the other to determnine if the modification of the redevelopment plan and the project's TIF () plan is consistent with the city's comprehensive plan. In addition, the commission will vote on whether the additional land sale is consistent with the comp plan.
The Richfield City Council will consider the purchase agreement for two city-owned properties not included in the option agreement. This could prompt a closed session and contiunance. The first readings of the ordinance to sell city land and the rezoning of the property will also be held.
The HRA will consider the development agreement and TIF plan. In addition, the public hearing for the consideration to sell the city-owned land will be held.
If all other dates line up with the above schedule, this is the night where final approvals can be granted. The city council will hold two public hearings, one regarding the adoption of the TIF plan and the other for the final plat. Second readings of the ordinance to sell the additional city land and the rezoning of the property will also be held. The final plat approval is contingent on the approval of the rezoning. If discussions about the purchase agreement are continued from the June 12 meeting, the item will be discussed here.
Devich made sure to note that this is a tentative schedule and subject to change. The memo is attached to this article as a PDF.
Of course, Richfield Patch will continue to follow this project and update readers as more information becomes available.
