Approval of Minutes:

            Motion: Approve the minutes of the 01/2012 meeting. (Harkness-Eyer) Passed

Chair Report: Linda Hinderscheit and Kim Moon attended the Roseville City Public Works, Environment &Transportation Commission meeting on January 22 and asked if they were interested in joining us in discussing with the Met Council options for route 83.  Kim also spoke with John Kohler about Walgreens. John reported that newly revised plans should be approved by Walgreens this week that include shrubs along the fence that should eventually hide the fence and enhanced landscaping on the east side of the building.  The project manager has been instructed to order shades for the parking lot lights and Kim, Tom and possibly Linda will set up a meeting with the store manager to discuss graphics options for the false windows on Lexington and Larpenteur. It has been suggested that we have a photo contest for photos of Como Park.

New Business:

Jessica brought up Walgreens management’s request for idea suggestions for a fundraising focus for their open house on March 11. Our committee would like to see Chelsea Heights playground benefit, if possible. Current Manager Josh Johnson mentioned Childrens’ Hospital of Minnesota.

Patrick’s appears to own what used to be the road at the back of the property. O’Reilly’s needs a variance to build on that part of the property. When they apply, we will ask for community input.

Adjourn: The meeting was adjourned at 7:26.
