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.
