Council to consider changes to downtown project

A light agenda has been prepared for the next Worthington City Council meeting, which is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Monday.

One of the items concerns a feasibility report and improvement hearing for the upcoming Third and Fourth Avenue reconstruction project. The council previously approved the project feasibility report -- and ordered the improvement and preparation of plans and specifications – back in December. During the final design process, however, a need was identified to replace private water services from the curb stop valve in the sidewalk to the water meter within the building wall of affected properties. These improvements will be on a case-by-case basis, and dependent on service conditions.

The council on Monday will consider a resolution approving the feasibility report amendment. If approved, an improvement hearing will take place during the March 25 city council meeting.

Also scheduled Monday is a presentation from Worthington Area YMCA staff on 2024 YMCA summer program fees during which changes from last year’s fee schedule will be outlined. The city’s Park and Recreation Advisory Board reviewed and endorsed the proposed summer program fees for this year during its March 6 meeting.

Under community development, the council will consider a request that will have the city take ownership of a pond in the Morning View Second Addition, which is located in the Eleanor Street and Pauline Avenue area. A developer -- the Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership -- has recently constructed homes on the last remaining lots in this area.
