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.

NSCC cities extend cable franchise and ready for possible Comcast successor

If FCC approves Comcast and Time Warner's proposed merger, a new company called Midwest Cable, which will do business as Greatland Connections, will take over the NSCC area. Comcast shareholders will have six seats on the new company's board and Charter Communications shareholders will have three. Shoreview has until the end of the year to decide if it will remain in NSCC. Comcast will subsume Time Warner and drop the latter's name.

Another cable TV provider eyes the market
North Suburban Communications Commission member cities have approved a cable franchise extension deal with Comcast -- the last, North Oaks, doing so Nov. 13.
Four years of negotiations over a new deal stalled and became overshadowed by the cable company's rush out of the Twin Cities cable market in preparation of limiting its national market share in order to garner Federal Communications Commission approval of a planned merger with Time Warner.
