East Ravine Study CITY OF COTTAGE GROVE MINNESOTA East Ravine Study Background The East Ravine is a 4,000-acre area in Cottage Grove lying along Keats Avenue (CR 19). This area includes the Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park and historic Old Cottage Grove, where the community began in 1843. Construction of the South Washington Sanitary Sewer Inter- ceptor will allow development of this area to begin in 2005. To help guide development in the East Ravine, the City of Cottage Grove has been conducting a planning study over the past year. With assistance from the City's consultant, the Hoisington Koegler Group, this study is addressing appropriate land uses in the area and neighborhood concepts, as well as roadway alignments, utility extensions, and stormwater management. Goals for Residential Development • Create a variety of housing options • Link neighborhoods to parks with green corridors • Provide move-up housing opportunities • Ensure quality design through development guidelines • Promote association maintenance of amenity features Goals for Commercial Development • Create a sub-regional retail area in the Cottage View area (TH 61 and Keats) • Develop a mixed-use area north of the Cottage View area • Plan for community-scale shopping at the Cedarhurst area (Keats and 70th Street) Other Features • Develop a City/County Civic Campus at Keats Avenue and 90th Street • Provide green corridors along major roadways • Preserve character of Old Cottage Grove Timeline The City expects to complete the East Ravine Study in early 2005. This will be followed by the necessary Comprehensive Plan and zoning amendments. It is expected that review of subdivi- sion proposals will begin in mid-2005.
