TCAAP/Rice Creek Commons Redevelopment Public Forum

TCAAP/Rice Creek Commons Redevelopment Public Forum
November 15, 2018
Ramsey County Public Works Building
1425 Paul Kirkwold Drive, Marsden Room
6-8 p.m

On November 15, the City will hold a public forum to ensure residents can offer feedback on the Council's supplemental goals for the project and to allow the Council and staff to share the final framework for our partnership with Ramsey County and the developer.

Additionally, the public forum will gather feedback about the proposed civic space on the site and its uses. A Civic Site Task Force, including volunteers from the City, has been formed. Site architects and consultants will attend.

If you are unable to attend, please send your comments in writing to or to City Hall, 1245 W. Highway 96, Arden Hills, MN 55112.

Master Developer
In May 2016, the TCAAP Joint Development Authority selected Alatus, LLC as the master developer for the site. In December 2016, the City Council approved amendments to the TCAAP Redevelopment Code and the Arden Hills 2030 Comprehensive Plan to facilitate the redevelopment plan proposed by Alatus. The City, Ramsey County, and Alatus are currently working on a Master Development Agreement that will guide the phased development of the site.

Site Infrastructure & Preparation
Several large public infrastructure projects have recently been completed to help support the future development of TCAAP. Construction on the County Road H and I-35W interchange and the County Road I, Rice Creek Parkway, and Old Highway 8 interchange was completed in 2017.

The TCAAP Site Redevelopment Infrastructure Preliminary Design Report has been completed and final design will begin soon to allow construction of the main boulevard, natural resources corridor, and trunk utility lines in 2019.

Environmental Cleanup
Work to clean and clear the TCAAP site to residential standards was completed in November 2015. Ramsey County's environmental cleanup work was verified by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency through its Voluntary Investigation and Cleanup program and the Environmental Protection Agency in 2016.

The U.S. Army released the results of an optimization study in January 2018 to determine how to best continue to treat TCE and 1,4 dioxane contamination in the groundwater on the site. The Army will continue to treat groundwater on the site for the foreseeable future. The continued groundwater treatment will not affect the redevelopment of the site.
