Blaine

The Story of

D

akota and Ojibwe Indians hunted on the land that later became Blaine long before settlers appeared. In 1847, a government land survey crew led by Deputy Surveyor Andrew Hewett measured the perimeters of the township “by slogging through swamp and thicket and over dunes.” In his report, Hewett concluded, “The township is almost inaccessible for either man or beasts except when frozen up.”

In the 1850s, speculators began acquiring land by hiring squatters with the idea of turning over ownership in the form of land patents to the speculators, who by all accounts never lived there. However, one individual, Andrew More, who purchased land in 1855, most likely lived in the township. His name appears in the 1857 census, making him possibly the first settler.

4 | BlaineMN.gov

The first permanent settler was most likely Phillip Leddy, whose name was misspelled in early historical sources as Laddy. Leddy purchased land in 1857 and 1859 near what was later called Laddie Lake, presumably named for him. He farmed there from about 1862 until his death in 1872. Leddy’s wife Bridget and three of their seven daughters continued to live on the farm until at least 1875. They then moved to Minneapolis. The township was officially organized in 1877. Moses Ripley was elected as the first chairman of the Board of Supervisors. According to local lore, Ripley, who had come to Minnesota from Maine, persuaded his fellow board members to name the new township in honor of James G. Blaine, a U.S. Senator and statesman, also from Maine. In 1880, Blaine Township had a population of 128. A former slave from Kentucky also helped set Blaine on its early course to permanent settlement. Greenberry “Green” Chambers served as a private in Company H of the 115th U.S. Colored Infantry and later as a supervisor cook during the Civil War. After his 1865 discharge from the Union Army, Chambers traveled by steamboat up the Mississippi River to Minnesota with his wife and three of their five children in search of a better life. Chambers purchased a farm in Anoka County that later was lost to foreclosure. The family then settled on another farm, likely in southeastern Blaine, where Chambers served on the Township Board of Supervisors from 1878-1881 as a constable and in 1882 as a road overseer. He and his son, Green Jr., are listed as voters in the 1881 Blaine Township election.


Dairy farms dominated the landscape in Blaine well into the 20th century. After World War II, with the severe housing shortage created by returning servicemen and their growing families, starter home developments began to spring up in southern and eastern Blaine. In 1950 the population reached 1,694. Dairy farms gave way to vegetable and sod farms and later were sold to housing developers. The development of Interstate Blaine Named 35W, Highway 10, and Highway to Best Places 65 created greater accessibility to Live in to the Twin Cities. The National America List Sports Center was constructed in The City of Blaine has 1990 and the TPC of the Twin Cities twice been named to the was completed in 2000. By 2019, prestigious annual Money.com (formerly more than 170 years after Hewett’s Money Magazine) 100 Best survey, Blaine’s population topped Places to Live in America 66,000, making it the largest city in list. Blaine made the list in Anoka County and the 12th largest 2019 and 2008. in Minnesota. The best places to live Information compiled by the Blaine ranking took more than 80 Historical Society types of data into account. Evaluated data sets included economy, cost of living, diversity, education, housing, health and safety, amenities, and ease of living. Blaine is also one of only a handful of cities in Minnesota to receive a AAA bond rating. The AAA rating is the highest possible rating a city can receive and shows that Blaine has sound financial management and strong local economy.

BRAVERY BOX

nspires Courage to ace ear Bravery Box Provides Courage to Little Fighters

E

very day, young patients at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota face unimaginable challenges. They confront illnesses and conditions that may require surgery, treatment, medication, or extended hospitalization. These situations would be overwhelming for most adults, yet somehow these small warriors find the courage and strength to face their fears – sometimes with a little help. And that is how Andrew’s Bravery Box came to be. This nonprofit organization provides small rewards to children to help ease anxiety and make hospital experiences a bit more bearable. The group provides toys, activities, and other fun items for families and nurses to give to patients as a prize for showing bravery. The idea was inspired by Andrew Dorsing, whose mother is a teacher at Blaine High school. Andrew was born in December 2012 with Aortic Stenosis, a congenital heart defect. At just two days old, he underwent his first heart catheterization procedure – one of five he would endure,

8 | BlaineMN.gov

along with three open heart surgeries, over the next six-and-a-half years. To make his hospital visits less scary, Andrew’s family would put toys they knew he would love into a paper bag and let him choose one every time he was brave. And each time, Andrew’s spirits lifted as he gained more courage. Due to complications from his heart defect, along with a new and unexpected issue, Andrew passed away on July 9, 2019. In his short life, this little boy who loved Daniel Tiger and Paw Patrol, building Legos, and playing with his brothers exhibited bravery every step of the way. He never let his circumstances prevent him from enjoying his best life. And now his legacy carries on through the Bravery Box initiative that bears his name. You can help encourage children like Andrew to be fearless in the toughest of situations with a donation to Andrew’s Bravery Box. If you would like to donate, the best items to purchase are those that would be enjoyed by the children in your life.


The organization accepts toy donations in a number of ways: • Donors can shop directly for items on the Suggested Toy List at AndrewsBraveryBox.org and mail to the organization’s Coon Rapids location or drop off directly. All toys should be new and in their original packaging and should cost less than $10. Additionally, smaller toys are better, as some children may visit the box multiple times in a single day, depending on their circumstances. • Purchase items from the organization’s Amazon Wish List at tinyurl.com/andrewsbraverybox to ship directly. New items such as coffee and snacks have been added to this list to accommodate parents who currently don’t have access to lounges or dining facilities due to COVID-19 restrictions. • Monetary donations are always welcome and can be made on the donation page at AndrewsBraveryBox.org/donate. Funds are used to keep hospitals stocked with toys as well as to maintain the website and pay for operating expenses. If you would like to host a Bravery Box toy drive in your community, visit AndrewsBraveryBox.org/host-a-toy-drive for details and tips for implementing your event. To learn more about Andrew’s Bravery Box or to tell your story about how this idea inspired you or a child in your life, visit AndrewsBraveryBox.org.

Blaine Wetland Sanctuary S ince the late 1980s, the city has had a vision for creating a wetland classroom in the area known as the Blaine Wetland Sanctuary. In 2000, residents approved a $3.5 million bond referendum to purchase property for open space. The first purchase was the 62-acre wetland and 8-acre oak forest in the Lakes of Radisson development, which added to the city’s existing 435 wetland acres east of the Lakes of Radisson development extending south to 109th Avenue. Since that time, research has been conducted in the 500-acre open-space property west of Lexington Avenue adjacent to Anoka County Ditch 53-62. This area is part of the larger Anoka Sand

12 | BlaineMN.gov

Plain, which is home to unique plant communities found in very few places anywhere in the country. Several species of rare and endangered plants were discovered and the concept of restoring the wetlands to allow those species to flourish began to take shape. Combined with the big picture of being in city open space and the prospect of adding a pavilion for public education and access for the enjoyment of nature lovers, plans were put in motion. The goal of the project is to enhance, restore, and protect three wetland community types and upland islands. The upland communities will be restored to oak forest or aspen-birch forest types. The wetland communities will be restored to

Anoka Sand Plain rich and poor fen, which are unique and rare plant community types containing two confirmed threatened and endangered species. The restoration will release the dormant native seed bank and existing rare species and their habitats will thrive and expand. The boardwalk and parking lot were completed in August 2017, giving the public the opportunity to walk from East Lake Park in the Lakes of Radisson development to the regional trail along Lexington Avenue. The parking lot was constructed off of Lexington Avenue, providing a trailhead for the boardwalk and parking for educational programming. Active management of the wetland site will continue to accomplish the plan


Enjoy the moment... knowing your local independent agent, and the company that stands behind them, has your family covered. approved by the regulatory agencies, and ongoing maintenance will continue into perpetuity to remain in compliance with the approved plan. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, crews will be out applying herbicides to control invasive species that inhibit the growth of native vegetation. Prescribed burns and over-seeding with native herbaceous species will allow the area to thrive and provide important habitat for birds and wildlife.

3M Open Links PGA Tour For almost 20 years, TPC Twin Cities in Blaine hosted the 3M Championship, a PGA Tour Champions senior event. But a new chapter of golf in Minnesota began in 2019 with the inaugural 3M Open. What started as the Burnet Senior Classic in 1993, played at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, transformed a bit in 2001. 3M took over as the title sponsor and the tournament moved to TPC Twin Cities, where it remained the preeminent Minnesota golf event for almost two decades. The 2018 3M Championship was the final Champions Tour event and its replacement was announced that same year. An official PGA Tour stop and part of the FedExCup series, the 3M Open got the ball rolling in July 2019 at TPC Twin Cities. The private golf club first opened in 2000, when Arnold Palmer Design consulted with golf legend and Minnesota native Tom Lehman to convert a former sod farm into a premier golf course. The grounds were long considered one of the top designs on the PGA Tour Champions circuit. To challenge golfers at the PGA Tour level, the layout received some significant upgrades and reconfigurations. Now a par 71 that plays up to 7,468 yards, the course is longer and narrower, with 27 water hazards and 74 bunkers. The event marked the PGA Tour’s first regular stop in the state in half a century. The tour stopped in Minnesota 34 times between 1930-1969. Each year a field of 156 golfers compete in the 3M Open. The tournament has been headlined by such notable names as Masters champions Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, and Dustin Johnson, and top-ranked players Brooks Koepka, Jason Day, Tony Finau, Matthew Wolff, and Bryson DeChambeau.

Council, Boards & Commissions Blaine City Council

Blaine Economic Development Authority

As the elected representatives of the people, city councilmembers comprise the policy-making body of the city. The council is composed of six councilmembers and the mayor. Though voting equally with the other six members of the council, the mayor is the presiding officer at council meetings and is the official representative of the city. Two councilmembers are elected from each council ward on staggered four-year terms. The mayor’s position, a four-year term, is elected at large. The city is comprised of three council wards. Elections are held each August and November in even-numbered years. The councilmembers, as a body, implement all policies exclusively through the city manager and, as individuals, neither perform nor interfere with any of the administrative work themselves. Regular meetings are the first and third Monday of every month at 7:30PM in the Blaine City Council Chambers at Blaine City Hall. Meetings are televised live on cable channels 799 and 16. Meetings are also live streamed at BlaineMN.gov/Video. For additional information, visit BlaineMN.gov/CityCouncil.

In May 1985, the Blaine Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) was established to promote economic development. State law empowered HRAs with broad authority to engage in redevelopment and economic development activities. Although the HRA was an autonomous organization, the HRA was governed by a board whose members are the Blaine City Council. In December 1988, the Economic Development Authority (EDA) was established to replace the HRA as the vehicle for subsequent economic development activities. Previous city and HRA projects were consolidated under the EDA’s authority. In part this was done because state statute provided the EDA with greater flexibility. The EDA is governed by the Blaine City Council, which serves as the EDA’s board of directors and president. The city manager is the executive director of the Blaine EDA. The EDA meets as needed. Meetings are held either before or after regularly scheduled Blaine City Council meetings. Meetings are televised live on cable channel 799 and 16. Meetings are also livestreamed at BlaineMN.gov/Video. For additional information, visit BlaineMN.gov/EDA.

Longtime Mayor Tom Ryan Retires In 2016, Tom Ryan procured his sixth four-year term as the Mayor of Blaine. Once that term expires on December 31, Ryan will relinquish his mayoral responsibilities and officially retire. Ryan has served as Mayor since 1997. He was elected to the Blaine City Council in 1987 and initially planned to serve only a couple of years on the board. That was more than three decades ago. In October, the Blaine City Council took action to recognize Mayor Ryan’s years of service to the community by renaming Town Square Park as Tom Ryan Park. Tom Ryan Park is located next to Blaine City Hall and is home to the summer concert series, Blaine World Fest, and many other community events throughout the year. The park is also home to the Veterans Memorial that Mayor Ryan has worked diligently with others to bring to the community.

laine Safety Services are comprised of the Blaine Police Department, the Spring Lake Park, Blaine, Mounds View (SBM) Fire Department, and community standards.

Blaine Police Department The Blaine Police Department has an authorized strength of 70 sworn officers, 11 full-time support personnel, and eight part-time non-sworn community service officers. The department responds to over 43,000 calls for service annually. The police department has two K-9 teams as well as other specialty units such as a traffic unit, retail crime unit, and directed operations group. There are five divisions in the police department: the patrol division, special operations, administrative services, emergency management, and support services. In addition, the police department also has a reserve unit and a law enforcement explorer post. The Blaine Police Department strives to have the most upto-date policies that reflect changes in federal and state court rulings and law changes, as well as keep them contemporary with the ever-changing world around us.

This process will take us into 2021 and beyond by continually going through our entire policy manual and updating it on a real time basis.

We strive to create trust and confidence in the neighborhoods, schools, and businesses we serve. In addition to being a wonderful city in which to live and work,

As Blaine continues to grow, the police department integrates with other members of the community to provide a safe, thriving community. The mission statement of the Blaine Police Department is: “As proud members of our community, we, the members of the Blaine Police Department, strive to enhance the quality of life in Blaine by serving with integrity, respect, and professionalism.” The department strongly believes in this and is here for everyone in Blaine.

K-9 Team Proves to Be Top Dog A Blaine police officer and his K-9 partner were recently honored with the 2019 National Case of the Year award from the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA).

NORTHTOWN-MALL.COM

Officer Reggie Larson and K-9 Rex received recognition for an August 2019 incident in Coon Rapids, when a routine traffic stop led to a pursuit that resulted in an officer-involved shooting.

active link s to websites !

Their swift action and bravery earned this K-9 team the association’s Regional Patrol Case of the Year award earlier in the year. Regional winners are then eligible for the national honor. Larson began training with Rex, a Belgian Malinois, in February 2012, when the pup was about a year old. The pair is one of two K-9 teams on the Blaine Police Department. Funding for the K-9 unit is provided through the Blaine Public Safety Association, a nonprofit organization designed to enhance public safety by improving crime control through training, education, research, and policy development initiatives. The USPCA’s National Case of the Year award is the highest national honor a K-9 team can receive, and this is the first time it has been bestowed on an officer from the Blaine Police Department.

SBM Fire Department Residents incorporated the Spring Lake Fire Department on January 17, 1944 as a nonprofit corporation, starting with two pieces of apparatus and 20 volunteer firefighters. The fire district was quite large at the time and consisted of the current communities of Blaine, Spring Lake Park, Mounds View, Fridley, Arden Hills, Shoreview, and Coon Rapids. Today, the SBMFD is a dynamic, high-performing organization, which provides extraordinary all-hazard emergency response, innovative fire prevention services, and public fire education to the communities of Spring Lake Park, Blaine, and Mounds View. SBMFD currently serves a permanent population of over 87,000 residents who are dispersed throughout approximately 40 square miles. The coverage area includes the Anoka County Airport, critical state infrastructure, major regional employers, and numerous schools. The operations division provides services through a unique combination-staffing model, staffing with full-time personnel and volunteers, delivering an effective service at one of the lowest per capita costs in Minnesota. The SBMFD operates out of five fire stations, four of which are located in the City of Blaine and have an apparatus complement of six engines, two ladders, four RIV/Utility and additional support vehicles. Weekday response combines 13 full-time SBMFD personnel with 11 full-time City of Blaine employees who are also firefighters. During the evening, weekends, and holidays, service is provided by approximately 55 volunteer personnel who respond to their assigned fire stations from their homes. In 2018, the SBMFD responded to over 1,500 calls for service within Spring Lake Park, Blaine, and Mounds View and in surrounding communities as a mutual aid partner. The community risk reduction division delivers innovative fire prevention and safety programs to the community in

several focus areas. Some of these innovative and crucial programs are: after the fire care, bike helmet fittings, car seat clinics, citizens academy, first aid and CPR, home safety surveys, safety camp, senior safety fair, school education, and youth fire setter intervention.

Community Standards Division The community standards division consists of 11 full-time staff who conduct city code compliance inspections and enforcement activities related to the fire marshal, fire inspections, rental licensing, and code enforcement. Most of the community standards staff also supports the SBM Fire Department as daytime responders to fire, serious medical calls, and vehicle crashes. Community standards staff also assists with emergency management in the city. For additional information, visit BlaineSafetyServices.com/CommunityStandards.

CommunityConnect CommunityConnect is made up of six initiatives: crime mapping, camera registration, community relations, Night to Unite, safety education, and security surveys. CommunityConnect is a modernized version of the old neighborhood watch and connects the entire community instead of just pockets of neighborhoods. It is designed to make our community a safer place to live, work, and grow. Learn more at BlaineMN.gov/CommunityConnect.


Partnering for a Safer Blaine Blaine Safety Services actively engages in resident safety and resident awareness. The Blaine Police Department and other safety services members, along with the City of Blaine Parks & Recreation department, annually host a summer safety camp event for two days for children entering fourth grade in the fall. This two-day event teaches the children a variety of safety precautions in a fun environment. Blaine Safety Services also holds a two-day bike helmet safety event. This is hosted annually in the spring and is an event to learn how to fit bike helmets for adults as well as children. You can bring in your own helmet for a fitting or buy one at cost at the event. Every fall, adults have an opportunity to experience what it is like to be a police officer or fire fighter at Blaine’s Citizens Academy. This eight-week program helps people understand the operations of the police and fire department and offers the chance to use some of the actual equipment that Safety Services members use daily. These are just a few examples of how the City of Blaine works cooperatively to make Blaine a safe and enjoyable place to be.

In addition to response for calls for service, the Police Department provides a number of specialized services: • In the Patrol Division, there are two dedicated K-9 officers as well as three officers dedicated to traffic enforcement and education. • The traffic officers work in conjunction with the Blaine Traffic Commission to address and improve traffic safety in our community. • Community service officers provide non-emergency assistance with ordinance issues and traffic safety/flow. • Police Reserves and Explorers provide volunteer services to the police department on patrol and at special events throughout the city. • The Investigations Division includes nine detectives and two sergeants and provides 24-hour investigative coverage to our community. • One of the detectives and one of the sergeants are assigned to the Anoka Hennepin Narcotics and Violent Crimes Task Force. • There are additionally four school resource officers assigned to Blaine High School, Roosevelt Middle School, Centennial High School, and Westwood Middle School. • The Patrol Division has two retail officers dedicated to the Northtown Mall area in the southeast corner of the city. They work in conjunction with the businesses in the area to provide a safe, secure retail area. • Special Operations also has two officers in the Directed Operations Group. The Directed Operations Group provides specialized targeted enforcement in problem areas of the City of Blaine. • There are seven staff members who provide support services which include records management and administration. • Emergency Management in Blaine is overseen by the police department.

Building Permits B

uilding Inspections reviews and inspects all new construction and remodeling within the city. All building permits and licenses, as well as Certificates of Occupancy, are issued from Building Inspections. A building permit is needed for any new construction, remodeling, sprinkler system, plumbing, heating, fence, deck, shed, in-ground pool, or mobile home setup. All Blaine building permits are obtained online. Start the process today at BlaineMN.gov/BuildingInspections.

The Simple & Easy Building Permit Process 1. T  alk to Your Local Code Official. Code officials want your project to be a success and will help you avoid potential problems that could cost time and money. Residents will be asked some basic questions (What are you planning to do? Where?), advised of any requirements, and, if necessary, referred to other departments for their approval. The code official will provide you with the resources and information needed for compliance with the applicable building codes. You will then receive an application for a building permit. 2. S  ubmit Application. At this stage, the applicant will document the who, what, when, where, and how of the job, along with any sketches or plans of the proposed work. Learn more at BlaineMN.gov/BuildingInspections. 3. Building Inspections. The code official will review your plans and determine if your project is in compliance with local requirements. If your plans meet these requirements, a permit is issued. If for some reason they do not, the code official will work with you to help correct the problem.

36 | BlaineMN.gov

visit BlaineMN.gov/ BuildingInspections.

4. R  eceive Permit. Now that you have been approved for a permit, you have legal permission to start construction. A fee, based on the size of the job, is collected to cover the cost of the application, the review, and the inspection process. An experienced code official is available should you have any questions concerning your project. You should consider your code official as an ally who will help you make your project a success. Typically, separate permits are required for electrical, plumbing, and heating or air conditioning work. 5. Job-Site Visits. On-site inspections are required to make certain the work conforms to the permit, local codes, and plans. Again, you will have access to the expertise of the code official to help you with questions or concerns regarding the project and to ward off potentially costly mistakes. The code official will let you know approximately how many inspections may be needed for your project. Typically, several days are needed when requesting visits. 6. F  inal Approval. The code official will provide documentation when construction is completed and code compliance is determined. You will then have the personal satisfaction of a job done safely and correctly. You can enjoy your improvements with the knowledge that they meet the safety standards in your community. It takes everyone in a community to keep homes, schools, offices, stores, and other buildings safe for personal and public use. Safe construction practices help protect you, your family, your friends, and your investment. Be sure to get your local code official involved with your project, because the Building Department is on your side.


Important Information Deck, Porch, and Addition Footing Design

M

ost homes in Blaine are constructed on corrected soil pads. This is because soil conditions prior to development were too low and often unsuitable. These corrected building pads are not much larger than the home structure. Soils outside of these corrected pads may not be suitable for the construction of decks, porches, or home/garage additions. Any proposed construction of a deck, porch, or addition may require soils corrections, or an engineer’s soils report may be required to verify minimum bearing capacity of 1,500 pounds per square foot.

How to Design Footing for a Deck or Porch Areas of known poor soils require soils corrections and/or deck footings must be designed by a licensed professional engineer prior to the issuance of the permit. Please call the Building Department for soil information in your development at 763-785-6170 as your first step in planning for your deck or porch. 1. C  oncrete Footings – The permit holder is responsible for the design size, but the footings cannot be a smaller diameter than listed in the City of Blaine deck or porch handout footing guide. In lieu of using the guide in the handout, another option is to provide an engineer’s soils report to verify minimum bearing capacity and design them accordingly. Footings must still be set on sandy/suitable soils (no black organic type soils) or the footing inspection will fail. In some developments, the depth to suitable soil may be much deeper

than the 42 inch frost depth. The footing inspection will fail if suitable soils cannot be verified, and soils corrections and/or deck footings must be designed by a licensed professional engineer. 2. N  on-concrete manufactured pin style footings – The permit holder is responsible for the design size, and the base area comparison must be equal to or greater than concrete footing diameter listed in the City of Blaine deck handout footing guide. These pin style footings are only permitted for decks and may not be permitted for porch footings; verify with the product manufacturer. 3. H  elical piles (screw-pile) – These are permitted in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. These are long screwlike piles that can reach suitable soils without the need for soils corrections. Screw-piles must be installed by a certified contractor.

Frost Footings for Home and Garage Additions The following applies to all areas in the City of Blaine that have corrected soil pads or other areas with black organic type soils at the depth of the footings. Soils corrections must be designed by a licensed professional engineer, or an engineer's soils report must be provided to verify minimum bearing capacity of 1,500 per square foot prior to issuance of the building permit.
