The Eagan City Council will convene at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening 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.

  • The Eagan council may vote on Tuesday whether to restrict the use of coal tar-based sealer products within city limits. Coal tar sealant was once widely used as a driveway sealer, but recent studies indicate there may be a relationship between the sealant and elevated concentrations of carcinogens in storm water runoff and households that use the product.
  • In Eagan, city ordinances dictate that only the Eagan City Council can implement or lift temporary burning bans in the city. However, city officials believe that this procedure leads to delays in both placing and lifting bans—because the council must meet and act on the ban before changes take effect. To facilitate speedier action, the council is expected to vote whether to approve an ordinance amendment giving the Eagan Fire Chief the authority to institute or remove a burning ban based on direction from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
  • The Paragon outlet mall is expected to make a return to the Eagan City Council on Tuesday. Developers, who previously released detailed preliminary plans for the extensive outlet mall project, are asking the council to approve a preliminary subdivision for two lots and four outlots on a 51-acre piece of property in the Cedar Grove Redevelopment Area. But that's not all; the company behind the outlet mall project is also requesting the council approve a preliminary site plan for the mall.
