Petition to the City Council of Chanhassen, MN
A petition opposing the ALDI/134 apartment building project.
Whereas the Chanhassen City Council has approved a plan to construct an Aldi grocery store and 134 unit apartment project located adjacent to the Chanhassen Dinner Theater, and
Whereas the developer of this project, United Properties owned by the Pohlad family has stated that the project is marginal without being subsidized by the taxpayers of Chanhassen, and
Whereas Chanhassen tax payers will be liable for $1.3 million dollars from a TIF, $750,000 from the Met Council and $60,000 from Carver county, and
Whereas this project cannot proceed without this subsidy from the Chanhassen taxpayers, and
Whereas with the huge financial assets of the Pohlad family, asking the taxpayers of Chanhassen to subsidize this project is shameful, and
Whereas to be economically viable without a Chanhassen taxpayer subsidy, the project should be scaled back to make it sustainable without taxing the citizens of Chanhassen,
Now therefore, we, the undersigned citizens of Chanhassen demand that the Chanhassen City Council refuse and reject any funding of this project by the taxpayers of Chanhassen.
