Alcohol for Aldi, Angelina’s Kitchen, Plus New Development: Woodbury Council Preview

The Woodbury City Council meets at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.

The Woodbury City Council on Wednesday will hold public hearings for liquor licenses for Angelina’s Kitchen and Aldi, as well as possibly approving a measure that would open the door for new housing developments near East Ridge High School.

Liquor Licenses

Angelina’s Kitchen

Angelina’s Kitchen, which consolidated its two locations this fall, has been planning to add a wine bar.

Background checks on management and corporate officers came back clear. Aldi is a discount grocery chain.

Development

Woodbury is considering opening part of Phase 2—a 2,500-acre area near East Ridge High School—for development.

The city has received interest from developers, and in September noted declining lot inventory in Woodbury and an uptick in the housing market.

Staff recommends that the council approve a measure for sub-phase 2A (Fields of Woodbury) that would allow “applications for preliminary plat, rezoning and planned unit developments to be accepted and processed,” according to a council memo. “Final plat approval would be dependent on availability of required public improvements.”

Phase 2 includes enough land to accommodate about 6,000 residential units over the next 10-plus years.

The opening of 2A is obviously developer driven. Whomever is developing it must be further ahead than the folks doing the mixed use at Radio and Bailey, because otherwise, it would make more sense to open the stuff around that with the schools in the area, much of the external roads and infrastructure already built....especially considering that based upon where we're at in the process, we're talking easily 2014 before we start to see any building of any significant amount. We have platting, we have design and construction of infrastructure improvements, zoning, perhaps even an EIS or EAW depending on wetland and other environmental quality issues. So, as someone outside the inner development circle in Woodbury, but who has played in that sandbox in other fast growing suburbs, that's my "take" on it. Might be 100% wrong, but it's Tuesday. I might have a completely new opinion by the afternoon.

Wasn't the Phase 2 stuff in the works before Bielenberg Gardens though? Some of that stuff runs together for me, but yeah, there have been developers at meetings pushing for the city to open up Phase 2.

You may be right on the timing. I've lost track of timing as well, but I guess I wonder if Bielenberg Gardens had been further along if the phasing may have been adjusted. I suppose they might have to run that by the Met Council.

Good question Eric. I'm not sure.
