The Eagan City Council will convene at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday night at City Hall to hold a regular meeting. Here's a preview of a selection of agenda items the council is expected to discuss. For a full agenda, click here.

  • This year, the city of Eagan installed a 17-mile fiber optic cable loop that city officials say will help maintain the city's business base and attract new businesses to the area. Now, the Eagan City Council will likely vote whether to approve an ordinance amendment establishing rules regarding the use of that fiber optic network. The council may also vote whether to create a fiber infrastructure fund to be used for the maintenance and operation of the network.
  • A new professional office building could be coming to a site east of Courthouse Lane along Hwy. 55 in Eagan. Tom Bennerotte, the future owner of the proposed building, wants to construct the facility on an undeveloped, 4.85-acre property, and has asked the Eagan City Council to rezone the site from agricultural to limited business and approve a preliminary subdivision on the site that would create one lot and one outlot.
  • Dakota County's Lebanon Hills Regional Park may be getting a signage upgrade. The Eagan City Council is expected to review a conditional use permit request allowing eight additional signs around the park at 1350 Carriage Hills Dr., 800 120th St., 4801 Johnny Cake Ridge Rd., 860 Cliff Rd., the intersection of Galaxie Avenue and Safari Trail, and at several locations within the park boundaries.
  • The Eagan Economic Development Authority is expected to vote on Tuesday whether to authorize the Dakota County Community Development Agency to demolish the former credit union building in the city's Cedar Grove Redevelopment Area. Removal of the building, city officials say, would help clear the way for a proposed realignment of Rahn Road and to allow more parking at Jensen's Supper Club. City staff believe the demolition would cost roughly $55,000, which would be paid by the EDA.
