September 2, 2020 Board Workshop 1736 Thomas Ave Building (Doneux)

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

August 28, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Mark Doneux, Administrator 1736 Thomas Avenue Building/Property

Background On July 27, 2016, CRWD entered into a purchase agreement for 595 Aldine Street and 1736 Thomas Ave. The District closed on the properties on February 27, 2017. As a condition of the sale, CRWD had to purchase both parcels, 595 Aldine Street and 1736 Thomas Ave from McQueen Equipment. The purchase price for both parcels was $1,350,000. The Thomas parcel is now listed with a 2020 estimated property value of $480,700 and is a separate tax parcel from the Aldine property that is 0.83 acres in size. The building is approximately 8,100 square feet. A Board workshop on September 5, 2018 focused on the future disposition of the Thomas property. At that time, there was no decision on the future of the Thomas property but consensus at the meeting was that the issue would be brought up after a year after utilizing the new building to better inform the Board’s action regarding the Thomas property. The District moved into the 595 Aldine building on December 4, 2018 and the Thomas Building has remained mostly empty since the move with the exception of some temporary, incidental storage. Issues The 2019 carrying costs for the Thomas property was $15,000 of which about $10,000 was minor maintenance and the balance was utilities and security fees. The 2020 year to date costs are about $39,000 of which $31,000 is deferred maintenance including code required electrical work, roof repair, roof drain and exterior maintenance. It is time to resurface the future use of the Thomas property and begin making plans accordingly. It is my opinion that the building should no longer remain vacant and that the District should determine to sell or repair/refurbish and lease out the building. While no need is on the one to two-year horizon for the property, there is a likelihood that with the District’s new Facility Management program, additional equipment storage and maintenance areas would be required in the next five years. Retaining an interest in the property, either through ownership or lease, would also be advantageous due to the need for overflow parking during major training and other events. The District will always retain easements for access and maintenance to the underground infiltration system and groundwater monitoring wells on the Thomas property. There also has been recent interest from an environmental non-profit in leasing a portion of the space and several organizations expressed interest in leasing all or portions of the building for storage. Our mission is to protect, manage and improve the water resources of Capitol Region Watershed District.


Board Memo - September 2, 2020 Board Workshop - 1736 Thomas Ave Building August 28, 2020 Page Two The Board should discuss their interests and perspectives on the Thomas property while keeping in mind the public purpose and benefit of expending public funds for Thomas property investments. Action Requested No Action Requested. For informational and discussion only. enc.

NOTE: 1. ORDERING OBSTRUCTION AND EXCAVATION PERMITS: Contact Public Works Right of Way Service Desk at (651) 266-6151. It is strongly recommended that contractors call for cost estimates prior to bidding to obtain accurate cost estimates. 2. OBSTRUCTION PERMITS: The contractor must obtain an Obstruction Permit if construction (including silt fences) will block City streets, sidewalks or alleys, or if driving over curbs. 3. EXCAVATION PERMITS: All digging in the public right of way requires an Excavation Permit. If the proposed building is close to the right of way, and excavating into the right of way is needed to facilitate construction, contact the utility inspector. 4. FAILURE TO SECURE PERMITS: Failure to secure Obstruction Permits or Excavation Permits will result in a double-permit fee and other fees required under City of St. Paul Legislative Codes.

ISSUE MARK DATE

1.

INSPECTION CONTACT: The developer shall contact the Right of Way inspector Dick Rohland at 651.485.1688 one week prior to beginning work to discuss traffic control, pedestrian safety and coordination of all work in the public right of way. Note: If a one week notice is not provided to the City, any resulting delays shall be the sole responsibility of the Contractor. As part of the ROW permitting process, two weeks before any work begins that impacts the ROW in any way the developer shall provide to the ROW Inspector the name and contact information of the Construction Project Manager or Construction Project Superintendent. If this information is not provided there may be a delay in obtaining permits for the work in the ROW. Said delays will be the sole responsibility of the developer.

2.

SAFE WORK SITE REQUIREMENTS: The Contractor shall provide a continuous, accessible and safe pedestrian walkway that meets ADA and MN MUTCD standards if working in a sidewalk area, and traffic control per MN MUTCD requirements for work in the public right of way.

3. ENCROACHMENTS: Per Chapter 134 of the Legislative Code, no person shall construct and maintain any projection or encroachment within the public right-of-way. 3.1. Construction of the development that necessitates temporary use of the Right-of-Way (ROW) for construction purposes shall be limited to equipment, personnel, devices and appurtenances that are removable following construction. Encroachment permits will not be granted for devices such as tie backs, rock bolts, H-piles, lagging, timbers, sheet piling, etc. that the owner is seeking to abandon in the ROW. 3.2. Section 3201.3 of the Minnesota Building Code defers final authority of encroachments into public rights-of-way/public property to the local authority. City Legislative Code governs management of the public rights-of-way. Provided such installations are approved by Public Works, footings may be allowed to encroach into City ROW no more than twelve (12) inches at depths below eight (8) feet as provided for in Minnesota Building Code Section 3202.1. Said encroachments would require an encroachment permit from the City per Chapter 134 of the Legislative Code. 3.3. Encroachments installed in the ROW without authorization will be removed at no expense to the City/County/State. 4.

NO PRIVATE FACILITIES IN THE RIGHT OF WAY: The developer is strictly prohibited from installing private electrical wiring, conduit, receptacles and/or lighting in the City's Right of Way. This includes stubbing conduit or cable into the public right of way to accommodate utility feeds to the site. Coordinate with each utility prior to construction to determine feed points into the property. Utilities are responsible for securing excavation permits to run their service into a site, and (where required) submitting plans for review by the Public Works Utility Review Committee. 4.1.

September 2, 2020 Board Meeting IV. Special Report - Draft CRWD Watershed Management Plan Update (Eleria)

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

August 28, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Anna Eleria, Division Manager Draft CRWD 2021-2030 Watershed Management Plan Update

Background In August, CRWD’s Board of Managers approved the responses to comments on the formal, 60-day draft CRWD 2021-2030 Watershed Management Plan and conducted a public hearing to present the draft plan, comments and responses to comments. Issues CRWD received three major comments on the draft plan, which included the need for measurability of goals, clarity in the District’s theme of community equity and engaging underrepresented groups, and a discussion on fiscal management and health. CRWD and Barr Engineering staff have prepared the attached draft table that correlates Plan goals to implementation activities and their associated ‘numeric’ measurable outputs. Combined with a few changes to the goals, staff believe that we have addressed BWSR’s comments about measurability of goals and we can determine if and how we are making progress in achieving the Plan goals. Staff have also revised the language around goal measurability, community equity and engaging underrepresented groups and funding. See enclosed excerpt of the updated draft plan with revisions highlighted in red. Besides these changes, we have addressed other comments as laid out in the Board approved responses to comments table and are working on the final, draft Plan. We anticipate presenting the final, draft Plan to the Board and seeking approval at a Special Board Meeting on September 8, 2020. Action Requested None, for your review and comment Encs.

Section 1.2.3

Community equity and engaging underrepresented groups

Watershed residents and community groups serve important roles in water and natural resource stewardship, including pollution prevention, partnering with the District to implement BMPs, and effectively increasing District capacity. In 2019, staff, partners and volunteers collaborated with nearly 11,000 residents as part of over 70 public events, trainings, presentations, resource assistance, school visits, field trips and tours within the District. The District values diversity and inclusion and can achieve cleaner waters through engagement across communities. Over time, the District’s population has grown more racially and ethnically diverse (Figure Error! No text of specified style in

Figure Error! No text of specified style in document.-1 Race and Ethnicity in the District The racial and ethnic diversity in the District, illustrated

document.-1). Between 2000 and 2015, the

percentage of people of color in Saint Paul increased from 36% to 46%. Across Ramsey

County, this percentage increased from 13% in 2000 to 30% in 2014. These trends are expected to continue through 2040 (City of Saint Paul, 2019). In 2019, the District adopted a diversity and inclusion plan to increase organizational understanding of the communities it serves and expand its programs and services to historically underserved geographic areas and cultural/ethnic groups. One of the goals/priorities in the District’s Diversity Strategic Plan is to “deepen relationships with many communities in the District by increasing outreach.”

1


Historically, District projects have been concentrated in the Como Lake watershed, Lake McCarrons watershed, and other limited areas. In 2018, the District analyzed hundreds of grant-funded projects and found far fewer residential/neighborhood scale BMP projects constructed via our Stewardship Grant Program in the central and eastern portions of the District (Trout Brook, Saint Anthony Hill and Phalen Creek subwatersheds, see Figure Error! No text of specified style in document.-2). These subwatersheds also correspond to areas of racially concentrated poverty defined by Metropolitan Council as 40% or more of the residents live with incomes below 185% of the federal poverty threshold and 50% or more of the residents are people of color (ACP50; see Figure Error! No text of specified style in document.-2 and Appendix A).

Income gaps can impact the communities’ ability to engage in water resources stewardship by limiting one’s financial ability to implement practices, time available to become aware of and participate in stewardship

Figure Error! No text of specified style in document.-2 CRWD Stewardship Grant Projects and Areas of Concentrated Poverty (ACP50) The District contains areas of concentrated poverty (red outline) including areas where 50% or more of the

practices or District programs, and property ownership that is often critical for siting BMPs. Engaging residents in the central and eastern portions of the District, Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC), immigrants, young adults, and youth will be a focus in District operations, programs, and projects during the implementation of this plan with a goal of providing more projects and services in their neighborhoods.

In the end, District residents of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, ages, abilities, and incomes will be  served. This theme is closely related to the District Strategic Plan’s desired future condition of equity in the work of the District and value of diversity.

2.1

Goal Measurability

District goals presented in this section range in specificity; some are applicable District-wide, while others are specific to individual water resources. Where applicable, District goals contain measurable goals or outcomes that may be used to evaluate success (e.g., µg/L of phosphorus or % pollutant reduction). Some goals contain interval-based outputs (e.g., five lakes monitored annually, 25 BMPs installed per year); where an interval or timeline is not explicitly established within the goal language, the 10 year planning period may be considered as the default timeline for achieving the goal. Some District goals do not have obvious measurable indicators, or the baseline by which progress will be assessed is not yet known. To assess progress towards these goals, the District will evaluate the output of implementation activities associated with each goal. The District has correlated each goal to one or more of the planned implementation activities (Appendix G). Each of the implementation activities includes quantified, measurable outputs associated with that activity. The outputs associated with each goal will be tracked biannually by the District to assess progress towards each goals, The achievement of the measurable outputs are highly dependent on complementary partner projects, interest, funding, schedule and capacity. The District will use this information in its assessment and reporting (see Section 3.8).

3.7

Funding

The District plans to fund its administration, programs, projects, and capital improvements through the following four primary funding mechanisms: 

Property tax levy

Local partner funding

Bonds and Loans

Grants

The District also plans to explore new, alternative funding sources or mechanisms, such as environmental impact bonds, to broaden and diversify existing funding sources (Implementation Activity #101C).

Property Tax Levy The District has the authority to collect funds through a property tax levy under Minnesota Statutes 103B and 103D. This tax is an ad valorem tax (a tax on all taxable parcels in the District that is based on property value). The District legal boundary defines the area of land that comes under the District’s jurisdiction, and the area upon which the ad valorem tax is applied. The legal boundary follows the hydrological boundary generally but must follow property boundaries or other legally definable boundaries (e.g., roads), and a single property cannot be in more than one watershed district. From 2011- 2020, the District funded approximately 60% of its work (administration, programs, projects, and capital improvement projects) through the property tax levy. On the District operations side (administration, programs, and projects), 96% of funding originated from property taxes. In contrast, 33% of capital improvement funding was from property taxes and the remaining 67% of capital improvement 3


costs was funded by partner cost share funds, grants and bonds. The major, non-tax levy funding included state funding of a TBI repair project in 2012/2013, Clean Water Fund grants for the Green Line, Upper Villa and Allianz Field projects, and bonds in 2013 for capital projects and in 2018 for the new office. During the next 10 years, the District anticipates that it will need to increase its annual levy. The current tax levy is $8.3M in 2020 and the average levy over the next decade is $10.5M. The increase in the Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax levy is the direct result of the Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expanded role in watershed management, specifically facility management and capital improvement projects, and will support the implementation of the activities included in this Plan. The District conducts sound and prudent fiscal management during its annual budgeting and working planning (see Section 3.6), which is based on the District's needs, priorities, and external economic factors. The District evaluates its annual tax levy and property tax impacts as a measure of fiscal responsibility. The District will continue to be sensitive to the economic climate of its partners, businesses, and residents as it sets the annual tax levy. The District will continue to fund nearly all of its administration work, programs, and non-capital projects through its annual tax levy; some additional funding will be raised through permit fees, interest income, and local cost-share funding. Based on estimates of future revenue, capital improvement projects will be funded with approximately 90% annual levy funding and 10% through other revenue including grants, loans, partnership cost-share, and bond proceeds. Small capital improvement projects (less than $250,000) will be financed through the annual levy. If other revenue is less than 10% for capital projects, the District will reduce project expenditures and/or increase the annual tax levy. If other revenue is greater than 10%, the District will consider increasing its fund balance for future projects and/or reducing its levy. The projected average annual capital tax levy is $4.2M, which is 90% of the projected average annual capital expenditure of $4.5M.

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

August 25, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Nate Zwonitzer, Water Resource Project Manager Approve Joint Powers Agreement with Ramsey County GIS Users Group

Background The mission of the Ramsey County GIS Users Group is to share, develop and promote GIS data and technology collaboratively throughout Ramsey County for the benefit of its citizens, local communities, government agencies, and business partners. The group is made up of 21 members including Ramsey County, cities, watershed districts, and other government organizations. Meetings are held approximately four times each year allowing group members to review new technological advances in GIS, share projects and applications of the data, and collaborates on collecting new information such as updated aerial photography. Issues The Ramsey County GIS Users Group is governed by a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) approved by all members. The current agreement expires at the end of 2020. The new enclosed JPA differs from previous versions as penalties and restrictions on leaving and rejoining the group have been eliminated. Members are now only required to approve the JPA and pay their annual dues to participate in the group and access shared resources. Since there are no additional penalties or restrictions for leaving or joining the group, the term of the agreement has changed from 3 years to 5 years to simplify administration for the group and its members. The Users Group approves an annual fee structure for its members. The structure has remained unchanged for several years and will remain unchanged for 2021. CRWDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fee for 2021 will be $1,705.97. Since CRWD is entirely within Ramsey County, and the data made available through the group supports its work, staff recommend CRWD continue to be an active member of the Ramsey County GIS Users Group. Requested Action Approve the 2021-2025 Ramsey County GIS Users Group Joint Powers Agreement and fee structure and authorize the Board President and District Administrator to execute the agreement.

September 2, 2020 Board Meeting V. Action Item C) Adopt Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy (Doneux) DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

August 27, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Mark Doneux, Administrator Adopt Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy

Background Each year the Board of Managers must establish a plan of work for the upcoming year, establish a budget based upon the work plan, and establish a levy for the budget. The Board of Managers discussed the current 2020 budget and revenue at the May 6th and 21st Board meetings. The Board also reviewed the preliminary 2021 Work Plan along with the budget and levy at Board workshops on June 3rd and July 8th as well as at Board Meetings on June 17th and July 22nd 2020. The Citizen Advisory Committee reviewed and recommended approval on the proposed 2021 budget and levy at their August 12th meeting. A duly noticed Public Hearing was held on August 19th to collect public comment on the proposed 2021 budget and levy. The District has not received any comments as of August 27th. The Board of Managers must adopt a Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy Certification before the initial September 30, 2020 deadline. Issues I am recommending that the Board adopt the preliminary budget and levy as presented. If the Board were to consider a change in the budget or levy, I would recommend doing that at the December, Final Levy Certification to allow for better estimating of fund balance as well as external budget requests. Staff is recommending the preliminary budget of $799,100 for Administration, $3,370,934 for Programs, $1,181,286 for Projects for a total Operations Budget of $5,351,320 and $3,726,290 for Capital Improvement Projects. This results in a total Preliminary 2021 Budget of $9,077,610. This is a decrease of $2,709,373 from the adopted budget for 2020. The proposed 2021 tax levy is $8,277,699. This includes $7,227,760 for the operations and capital levy and $1,049,939 for debt. This levy is the same as 2020. Requested Action Adopt the Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy. enc:

September 2, 2020 V. Action Item D) Authorize 2021 Partner Grant Request for Proposals (Schwantes) DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

August 27, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Lindsay Schwantes Authorize Distribution of 2021 Partner Grant Request for Proposals

Background Partner Grants support organizations who share in CRWD’s mission to protect, manage, and improve our water resources. Expenses eligible for reimbursement include personnel/staff time and materials. Any organization or community group serving residents within CRWD’s boundaries is eligible to apply. Projects funded in 2021 must be completed with a final report submitted by December 31, 2021. Grants are funded on a reimbursement basis and liability insurance is required for all grantees. Partner Grants are given to organizations, schools, businesses and other entities for clean water education and outreach projects. Grant awards range from $1,000-$20,000. Issues Staff will distribute the 2021 Partner Grant solicitation to the attached list and any additional community organizations, cities or agencies suggested. The distribution list includes previous grant recipients and organizations that represent new audiences for CRWD. The draft 2021 budget for Partner Grants is $135,000. Changes to the promotion and evaluation process include CRWD’s diversity and inclusion goals, an updated application form that includes improved questions that address CRWD’s priority audiences as outlined in the 2020 WMP and measuring project impact. These will be used during the review process. I will also be requesting information on how partners will respond to COVID 19 safety recommendations at the time of project execution. Staff will be hosting a virtual information session for interested applicants to learn about eligibility and contracting requirement on October 7, 2020. Staff will also promote CRWD’s Stewardship Grant Program and provide information on how to apply to the CAC in the promotion email.
