Lake Elmo City Council Needs To Listen To Residents and the City Planning Commission!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Several members of the Lake Elmo City Council continue to ignore the recommendations of neighboring residents, the City Planning Commission and even the current Lake Elmo Comprehensive Plan itself when it comes to buffering the northern and western borders of the planned development called Legacy at North Star. We demand the City Council support the City Planning Commission’s unanimous recommendation of a minimum 100' lot line buffer from said development and preserve the Greenbelt Corridor in Lake Elmo. As you know, the areas to the north and west of this development are currently a part of the Greenbelt Corridor and based on the current Comprehensive Plan created by members of the City Council and supported by the members of this great city itself, this Greenbelt Corridor is meant to serve as a transitional area between future sewered growth within the village and existing rural developments. Current City Council recommendations (30' buffer to the north and 50' buffer to the west) don't preserve the character and don't provide an adequate transition between current established neighborhoods and this higher density development.
