City Council Approves Bethel University Subdivision for Anderson Center Property

The City of Arden Hills

At its June 22 regular meeting, the Arden Hills City Council approved a planning case for a master planned unit development and preliminary/final plat to subdivide the property owned by Bethel University at 2 Pine Tree Drive (Anderson Center).  The approved final plat creates two new lots of record on the northern section of the subject parcel adjacent to Pine Tree Drive and as shown below. 

According to a recent news release, Bethel University is in the process of selling the northwest six acres of the 42-acre Anderson Center property for a senior living facility. 

 On May 22, it was announced that the Lake Johanna Fire Department is moving forward with a purchase agreement for a new fire station on the northeast 3.7 acres of the Anderson Center Property. The fire department has not yet closed on the land, and the department and senior living facility developer are in the due diligence phase for the land purchases.

 According to Bethel, the southern end of the property, which features walking trails adjacent to Crepeau Nature Preserve, will remain a natural amenity for both Bethel and the surrounding community. 

The Lake Johanna Fire Department, at the direction of the Lake Johanna Board of Directors, is pursuing a future station location that will meet the needs of the fire department for the next 50 years.
