New Brighton asks residents to limit water use

Warm weather and well work main concerns

With unseasonably warm weather and a return of outdoor water usage for gardens, car washes and kiddie pools just around the corner, New Brighton set the city’s water conservation status to yellow, as of March 11.

The city supplies residents with water pumped from underground aquifers, and according to city manager Dean Lotter, two of the city’s four wells require preventative maintenance, which he said should be done now, rather than later. 

The yellow conservation status means New Brighton residents using municipal water will not be permitted to water yards and gardens between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. and will be required to follow an odd/even sprinkling ban. Residents will also be prohibited from filling swimming pools or washing cars.

Here comes the sun: Mounds View schools put up solar panels


Solar panels were recently installed on the roof of Chippewa Middle School. Five more Mounds View schools, including Island Lake, Pike Lake, Pinewood elementary school, and Irondale and Mounds View high schools will have panels installed by the end of the year. (submitted photo)

Some roofs are meant to do far more than protect a building from weather, critters and a beating sun. 

According to Chippewa Middle School principal Rob Reetz, some roofs do all that and generate energy as well.

End of the Rainbow: Shoreview finalizes Kowalski’s plans


Shoreview’s former Rainbow Foods location will become the area’s first Kowalski’s Market near the end of the year. The Shoreview City Council approved building plans and will pay for a turn lane off Highway 96 to make the grocery store more accessible. (Jesse Poole photos/Bulletin)

City will contribute $1.4 million in TIF to help move

The path is paved for Kowalki’s Market to settle in Shoreview after the city council finalized plans for the Woodbury-based grocery store chain to move into the former Rainbow Foods location at Highway 96 and Hodgson Road.

“We finalized the final plat, all of the development agreements and everything on Monday,” Mayor Sandy Martin said of the city’s moves at the March 7 city council meeting. 

Kowalki’s new location is the 1990s-era 68,000-square-foot building that was left empty when Rainbow’s parent company, Milwaukee-based Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc., pulled out of the Twin Cities in July 2014.

Von Maur to open second Minnesota location at mall

A decade after the last expansion of Roseville’s Rosedale Center, plans for another are moving along, now with a new wrinkle: The mall’s latest anchor tenant has been named.

According to a March 2 release, Iowa-based department store Von Maur will fill the 141,000-square foot addition to the mall that the Roseville City Council approved last year. 

The expansion will fill in what’s currently surface parking, between JCPenney and the AMC Theaters on the northeastern side of the mall.
