Area cities approve 2015 budgets, tax levies

Home values slowly rebounding; commercial property values stay low
With the soon-approaching beginning of the new year, local city councils have been busy approving their 2015 budgets and tax levies before a Dec. 30 deadline.
Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada and Roseville have each adopted a budget for next year, ranging from just over $1 million in Lauderdale to $52 million in Roseville.
The recovery of the housing market means the average homeowner will see an increase in property taxes whether a city increased its levy or not, due to increased home values.

Roseville approves land purchase with Mounds View School District

Autumn Grove Park Concept Plan
In 2010, the Roseville Parks and Recreation Department completed a parks system master plan, which includes acquiring a 3.32-acre parcel of land just south of Autumn Grove Park on Hamline Avenue. The vacant lot is owned by the Mounds View School District, and could be used for "court sports," including baseball, volleyball, pickleball or soccer, according to Parks and Recreation director Lonnie Brokke.

Former contaminated site to become a park
A three-acre piece of land in Roseville with a storied background as a dairy farm, construction company, printing press, school district center and contaminated brownfield will soon become a city park.
The Roseville City Council approved a purchase agreement with the Mounds View School District for a 3.32-acre property at its Nov. 10 meeting. The council plans to use the site, located at 2959 Hamline Ave., to augment Autumn Grove Park, which is just north of the property that once housed the school district's administrative center. The city entered into the purchase agreement in April, and has been conducting its due diligence period since.
