Project Number: Golden Valley-Crystal Boundary to Regent Avenue
Project construction took place during the winter of 2010-2011 with final tasks and plantings occurring in summer 2012.
The cost of this project was estimated to be $636,100. Originally, the BCWMC ordered that $2,262 of the project cost was to be funded from the BCWMC's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Closed Project Account, up to $34,800 was to be funded by the BCWMC's 2009 ad valorem tax levy collected via Hennepin County in 2010, and up to $601,300 was to be funded by the BCWMC's 2010 ad valorem tax levy collected via Hennepin County in 2011.
The BCWMC was awarded Clean Water Fund grant monies in the amount of $147,750 for this project, and the project also was awarded a Hennepin County grant in the amount of $135,000. Because of these funding awards, in April 2011, the BCWMC approved an amendment ordering that the project would be funded in the amount of $147,750 through the Clean Water Fund grant, $135,000 through the county grant, $2,262 from the BCWMC's CIP Closed Project Account, $32,538 from the BCWMC's 2009 ad valorem tax levy collected via Hennepin County in 2010, and $286,300 from the BCWMC's 2010 ad valorem tax levy collected via Hennepin County in 2011. The BCWMC finalized reimbursement to the City of Golden Valley in October 2012.
