Members of the public will have a chance to comment on an amended environmental assessment for the proposed Dakota Path residential project beginning on Feb. 18.
As part of the proposed residential project, developer Hunter Emerson would convert Parkview Golf Course along Cliff Road in Eagan to a 177-unit housing development. Hunter Emerson's controversial plans have been stringently opposed by a neighborhood group, which believes the Dakota Path development would negatively impact quality of life for adjacent neighborhoods.
Earlier this month, the Dakota County Platting Commission reviewed the impact of the proposed project on Cliff Road. While the commission approved the project, it recommended installing a number of changes to intersections near the development site to accommodate increased traffic.
Because of the sweeping modifications to the intersections, city and county officials were required required to conduct another traffic study in the area as part of an update to the environmental assessment for the proposed project. The public is now invited to comment on the amended assessment findings.
The amended environmental assessment, which assesses the potential impacts of the project, is available to view electronically at www.cityofeagan.com/DakotaPath and during business hours at the following locations:
- Eagan Municipal Center, 3830 Pilot Knob Rd. Eagan, MN 55122
- Wescott Library, 1340 Wescott Rd., Eagan, MN 55123
- Minneapolis Public Library, Government Documents, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, Minnesota, MN. 55401
Comments on the EAW will be received through Wednesday, March 20, 2013.
