Leslie Rechtzigel lives at the southwest corner of County Road 42 and Highway 52, so when talk started about reconstructing the intersection she worried she might lose some of her property. That’s why she showed up at an open house for the project last week at Rosemount City Hall. Once she learned her property was safe, she was all for the project. “It’s long overdue,” Rechtzigel said. “There was a big accident there just yesterday. There are accidents with the trucks coming off 52 all the time.

The Rosemount Planning Commission on Tuesday supported comprehensive plan and zoning changes that clear the way for the construction of a mosque and community center in Rosemount. The mosque, which would be operated by the Muslim American Society of Minnesota , is planned for the former City Limits Lanes building at 15400 South Robert Trail. For the plan to work, the city needs to change the property from regional commercial to business park in its comprehensive plan and rezone the property from highway commercial to business park.

Over the past two years, Jenelle Kelley has seen all kinds of support for her daughter, Lilah. People have opened their hearts and their wallets since Lilah was diagnosed with cancer shortly after her first birthday. They supported her through her treatment. Now, Kelley hopes they will open a vein. The Kelley family will team up with the American Red Cross Sept. 8 for a blood drive in Lilah’s honor.
School security, classroom iPads, even an entirely new school will be on the ballot when voters in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District go to the polls in November.

The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District is delaying, at least for a few months, its plans to build a new transportation facility in Apple Valley. The district has received a 90-day extension on the city of Apple Valley’s consideration of its plan. It will use that time to address concerns raised by residents about the site at the corner of Johnny Cake Ridge Road and 147th Street. Last month, Mike Erdmann, who lives near the site, presented a petition with 108 signatures from residents opposed to the project.
