In 2015 the City of Roseville reconstructed Victoria Street from Larpenteur Avenue to County Road B. As part of the project the pavement was replaced, new curb and gutter was added, water and sewer were replaced (as needed), new storm water improvement constructed (including a rain garden, two underground infiltration systems, and a reconstructed wetland), new pathway and sidewalk was constructed.
Public Hearing for Assessments
The final assessment hearing for the improvements took place during the City Council meeting on September 12, 2016 in the Council Chambers. Notices have been sent out to property owners with their final assessment total along with a Notice of Public Hearing and an Assessment Handout. Assessment amounts were approved as presented.
A portion of the cost is proposed to be assessed to adjacent property owners. The assessment depends on the size of the property and the total project cost. For street projects, Roseville’s policy is to assess 25% of the street reconstruction costs to residential properties and 50% of the street reconstruction costs to non-residential properties (i.e. churches or apartment buildings). The assessment rate is determined by dividing the total cost by the total assessable frontage. The City does not include pathway and utility costs in the assessment totals. The final assessment hearing will be held approximately one year after construction is complete. For the Victoria project, this will be September 2016. Estimated assessments for each benefiting property can be found on the last page of the Feasibility Report.
