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.
