Introduction to the Resident’s Guide

W

elcome to the 2011-12 Savage Resident’s Guide. This year marks the 20th anniversary of publishing these guides for the communities served by Southwest Newspapers. This Savage Pacer publication is a comprehensive directory of information and resources used by Savage businesses and residents, especially those who are new to the area. The Resident’s Guide is a compilation of that valuable information — a single source for lists of local services, organizations, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses. Keep it handy; use if often. Our apologies in advance for omissions or for changes that occur after publication. The challenge in publishing this Resident’s Guide is not only collecting accurate and important information, but keeping that information current in one of the Twin Cities’ fastest-growing areas. If you would like additional copies of this publication, call our Circulation Department at 952-345-6682. The Resident’s Guide is also available on the Web at www. savagepacer.com.

Every Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., from June through October, area residents enjoy the St. Paul Farmers’ Market, which sets up shop in the Savage Depot parking lot in Downtown Savage.

Officer Danny Bouavichith, the Officer of the Year last year for the Savage Police Department, chatted with Jodi Bianchi, a part-time campus supervisor at Prior Lake High School. Officer Bouavichith has only been with the Savage Police Department for three years, but he’s already made a big impact. Whether he’s patrolling the halls of Prior Lake High School in his role as the School Resource Officer (SRO), writing tickets to speeders, helping other officers as a use of force and firearms instructor or working with the Tri-City Tactical Team, Bouavichith is busy. And it’s his dedication to duty that has earned him the honor of Police Officer of the Year.


History of

SAVAGE H

amilton, Glendale, Savage. So great have been the changes in this river town that it has had three names. A steamboat landing, located at the mouth of the Credit River where it empties into the Minnesota River, marked the beginning off the town of Hamilton. Before the arrival of the fi rst white settlers — most of them Irish and Scottish — Dakota Indians lived throughout the Minnesota Valley. The community has been shaped by its transportation connection — wagon trail, river, rail and roadway — and by its role as a farm trade-service center. Hamilton was established as a town on Nov. 20, 1857. In was incorporated on Aug. 31, 1892. The fi rst post office, Hamilton Station, was renamed Glendale Post Office in October 1894. In 1902, Marion W. Savage, a prominent Minneapolis businessman, purchased 400 acres of land on the south side of the river and proceeded to build a mosque-like horse stable and an unrivaled half-mile covered track. In the same year, he acquired the famous Dan Patch, who on Sept. 8, 1906 startled the world by pacing the mile at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in the record-breaking time of 1:55. He became the only harness horse in racing history to break the two-minute barrier 35 times. Apart from physical prowess, Dan Patch was a crowd pleaser. He would nod his head to a cheering crowd, stop for cameras, and stare straight into the lens as pictures were taken. Dan, who traveled across the country in a luxurious 65-foot railroad car, was a personality, a hero to kids across America, as were Lassie and Rin Tin Tin. Marion W. Savage, the son of an Iowa country doctor, was the founder of International Stock Foods, a Minneapolis stock feed and veterinary supply company. With Dan Patch the center of his advertising campaign, Savage amassed a fortune. At Christmastime, the benevolent entrepreneur would hitch Dan to a cutter and transport gifts to the poor of Minneapolis. When the horse died in 1916, Savage died 32 hours later. It was an untimely death, said to have been caused by a broken heart. So fascinated were local residents by Savage, and the fairy tale-like story of his horse, they decided the town should be called Savage. Grazing horses, spotted here and there across the community, still suggest the glorious days of old, a time when world famous stallion Dan Patch made local history.

Savage remained a relatively small town for the next several decades, and it was not until after World War II that residential development began above the river bluffs. The war years did, however, have some major impacts on the community. In 1941, Cargill Inc. started a shipbuilding yard near the Minnesota River. Several ocean-going tankers were constructed for the U.S. Navy. After the war, the facility was changed to a grain-handling port. Also, Camp Savage, a branch of the U.S. Army, opened in April 1941 as a military intelligence language camp for servicemen of Japanese-American (Nisei) ancestry. A commemorative plaque and trees help memorialize the site. On April 28, 1969, the Village of Savage was consolidated with the adjacent Glendale Township to form the current 17-squaremile city of Savage. The horse, a symbol of the city’s past, also may be viewed as a beacon for its future. While the working farm slowly gave way to urbanization, the city of Savage continues to celebrate and honor its natural amenities — wooded hills and streams — that provide unique lifestyle opportunities.

Welcome to Savage T

he City of Savage provides municipal services to 26,911 residents and more than 500 businesses. More than 136 full- and part-time employees work in seven departments that include administration, finance, public works, community development, police and liquor operations. A paid on-call volunteer fi re department consists of 38 members who live or work in Savage. T he depa r t ment's only full-time staff are the fi re chief and deputy fi re chief. A city administrator appointed by a f i v e -m e m b e r c it y council oversees all city operations. The council is responsible for setting policy to guide the development and provision of programs and services provided to the community. The council consists of a mayor and four council members, who each serve four-year terms. City of Savage services are funded through several revenue sources and various budgets. The general fund supports general operations with a 2011 budget of $12.1 million. Property taxes provide 81 percent of the revenue for the general fund, with licenses and permits, engineering and plan review fees and intergovernmental revenues accounting for the balance. Special revenue budgets, supported in part or entirely by independent funding sources, provide for cable access initiatives, maintenance for the Savage Public Library and economic development efforts. Other budgets for the city include the water and sewer operations, stormwater and liquor operating funds. City operations have expanded considerably over the past two decades in response to a rapidly growing population. Once a rural community, Savage’s population has increased from 4,000 to 26,911 in the past 25 years. A new city hall, police facility, fi re station, water treatment plant, library and liquor store were built during that time frame.


nd coolers as The Dweebs took the stage at this past year’s Dan Patch Days.

McColl Pond Environmental Learning and Event Center The McColl Pond Environmental Learning and Event Center, located at Savage Community Park, opened in early 2009. Constructed from recycled materials, the LEED-certified building is a model for sustainable design and a place where people of all ages can learn more about protecting our resources. A green roof and rain gardens fi lter storm water, and solar and geothermal energy heat and cool the building. Features include two classrooms, a large gathering space for more than 100 people, and an outdoor covered patio that also has a capacity of 100. The McColl Pond Environmental Learning and Event Center was funded through public and private funds, and may be rented for meetings, gatherings and celebrations. Call 952-224-3420 or visit www.cityofsavage.com for more information.

About the Community Savage’s environmental assets include the Minnesota River, which forms the city’s northern border; the 500-acre Savage Fen Wetland Complex, which contains some of the largest calcareous fens in the state; Eagle Creek, one of the last Brown Trout streams in the metro area; and Boiling Springs, a historical landmark. A major industry in Savage is shipping, due to the community’s location on the Minnesota River. Five private facilities operate along the banks of the river to form the Ports of Savage. The community also offers a large retail base, which includes grocery stores, a variety of restaurants, retail stores and service shops. In addition, downtown Savage has seen renewed energy in recent years, thanks to new businesses and a redevelopment grant program through the city and Chamber of Commerce. Recreational opportunities are provided through 23 city parks, a regional park and hundreds of miles of sidewalks and trails. Savage Life Time Fitness Recreation and Aquatics Center offers residents and visitors an outdoor pool and a state-of-the-art health club. The center was built through a partnership between Life Time and the city of Savage. Residents of Savage receive a discount on admission to the outdoor pool. Three school districts serve Savage: Prior Lake-Savage Area, Burnsville-Eagan-Savage and Shakopee. The community has one high school, one junior high and five elementary schools within its borders.

Building Permits Jay Scherer, Building Services Manager Savage City Hall ............................................................... 952-882-2650 Before beginning a project, residents should check on permit requirements. Building permits are required for most projects including decks, porches, finished basements, garages, fi replaces, swimming pools, wood stoves, retaining walls (over 4 feet high), and demolition. No permit is required for a concrete patio. All plumbing, heating, air conditioning and ventilation contractors and subcontractors must be registered with the city of Savage.

Youth 1214 must be in by 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 p.m. on weekends. Those who are between 15 and 17 must be in by 11 p.m. on weeknights and 12 a.m. on weekends. The restrictions apply to public streets, alleys, parks, playgrounds and other public buildings; as well as places of amusement, entertainment, or refreshment; and vacant lots. Details can be found at www.cityofsavage.com.

Nuisance Control — Noises/Odors Conditions that pose a threat to public safety and accumulation of rubbish, garbage, junk or debris are considered a nuisance and are prohibited. Excessive noise is also considered a nuisance and is prohibited.This includes excessive noise from vehicles, combustion engines, musical instruments, etc. Garbage trucks and construction equipment may operate between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturdays and holidays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Outdoor storage of unusable or inoperable “junk” vehicles is prohibited.

Weed Control Weeds that are higher than 10 inches, or that have gone to seed, are a violation of city ordinance. If, after written notice, the violation is not corrected, the city may cut the weeds and bill/assess the cost against the property.

Parking/Snow Removal Parking — Parking on city streets is prohibited between 2 and 6 a.m. Tickets will be issued for violations. Snow Removal, Streets — Plowing occurs after 2 inches of snow has accumulated (and usually after it quits snowing). Collectors and arterial streets are plowed fi rst, then minor arterials. Roadways not integral to traffic movement (cul-de-sacs, dead-end streets and alleys) are plowed last. Roadways are almost always plowed twice, once to clear them, a second time to widen them.

Summer is definitely Garage and Yard Sale season in Savage and surrounding communities.

Burning Permits A city burning permit is required for recreational fi res. Permits and other open burning restrictions may be obtained at City Hall, Monday-Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Permits also may be downloaded from the City’s website at www.cityofsavage.com.

Savage Resident’s Guide — October 2011

Snow Removal, Sidewalks — City crews remove snow from sidewalks and trails along collector streets and major roads. Snow Removal, Citizen Responsibilities — Residents are responsible for ensuring their mailbox is secured to withstand snow being pushed against it by the plows. Snow removal responsibilities include keeping all fi re hydrants open and accessible in case of emergencies and clearing sidewalks that are on the front and/or side of private property within 24 hours of a snowfall. It is unlawful to deposit snow that has been cleared from driveways, sidewalks, mailboxes and fi re hydrants into the street.

Restrictions Fences — No permit is required for fences that are 6 feet and lower. There are height limitations based on location of the fence. Check with the city for greater detail. Garage Sales — The annual number of occasions per property is limited to three. Signs should not be placed on utility poles or within road right-of-way. Mailboxes — Mailboxes should be set back 1 to 2 inches behind the curb and the bottom of the box should be 40 inches above street level. Recreational Vehicles — Up to three recreational vehicles may be parked/stored on a residential lot, provided the vehicles are operable,


licensed and without need for repair. They may be parked in a rear or side yard, minimum of 5 feet from a property line, or during the season, in the driveway. Only motor homes of less than 34 feet may be parked/ stored on a residential lot. For details, call the city. Snowmobiles — No snowmobile may be operated in the city except while loading or unloading a snowmobile from a trailer or similar form of transport, while performing maintenance and repair of a snowmobile within 300 feet of the registered owner's place of residence, for direct snowmobile trail access to or from the closest designated snow trail, or on a designated snowmobile trail. Storage Buildings — Residential area storage sheds under 120 square feet do not require a permit, but are subject to minimum setbacks from property lines. For information regarding required setbacks and for rules applying to sheds larger than 120 square feet, please contact the city’s Planning & Zoning department. Sump Pumps — All water from foundation drains or sumps must be pumped or drained directly to the exterior of the property through rigid plastic or steel piping. A sump pump may not be discharged into the municipal sewer system or onto a city street. Outdoor Water Use — An odd-even watering restriction is in effect throughout the year to ensure a continuing supply of water to residents. All residents whose house number ends with an odd number may water only on odd-numbered days; those with an even-numbered address may water only on even-numbered days. On these specified days, residents may water lawns or use an outside hose at any time of day except between the hours of noon and 5 p.m. Newly seeded or sodded lawns may be watered daily during the allowed hours for up to 30 days after installation. Ponds and Wetlands — A buffer of at least 17 feet is required on all ponds, and from 17 to 50 feet on wetlands even if they are on private

property. Residents may not mow, plant or place anything within this buffer. The buffer is intended to help clarify the water that runs into the ponds and wetlands. In addition to abiding by the buffer requirement, residents are encouraged to limit their use of fertilizer, as this can accelerate the growth of algae and other plants in the ponds.

Water Conservation The City of Savage encourages residents to use water wisely to ensure an adequate community supply and lower water bills, which are sent out at the end of each month. Water rates apply according to the amount of water used: Those using less than 12,000 gallons of water a month pay the lowest fees per 1,000 gallons used. The rates increase for those using 12,000 gallons or more, and increase again for thsoe who use 16,000 gallons or more. Outdoor water restrictions are in place throughout the year to encourage conservation and assist citizens in keeping their water usage volumes reasonable (see section on Ordinances, Licenses and Permits). Residents may also wish to check their homes for leaks. This can be done by reading your water meter at night after the day's water use has ended, and again in the morning before any water is used. The difference between the fi rst and second reading will indicate whether any water leaked overnight, and how much. If a leak is suspected, check pipes, fi xtures and appliances. Water softeners are recommended, with a setting of 20 grains of hardness.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Scott County Environmental Health Dept. ...................................................................952-496-8475 24-hour Information Line ............................................................952-496-8787 HHW Information ........................................................952-496-8652 Web site ............................................................ www.co.scott.mn.us/hhw Almost every home contains some household hazardous waste (HHW), hazardous products or chemicals that can harm human health or the environment if handled improperly. These are products normally used in cleaning, home improvement projects, automobile maintenance, lawn and garden care, hobbies, and a variety of other tasks. They might include paint, varnish, pesticides, household cleaning chemicals, solvents, fuels, wood stain or preservatives, rechargeable batteries, aerosol cans, fluorescent lamps (including tubes and CFLs), mercury thermostats or thermometers, automotive chemicals or batteries, appliances, electronics, tires, as well as any other household


products that are flammable, corrosive, reactive or poisonous. Each year, thousands of Americans are injured or poisoned through incidents involving hazardous household products. Minimizing the amount of hazardous chemicals stored in your home is always a good idea for the sake of your family’s safety. The Scott County HHW Facility will accept a variety of hazardous materials from Scott County residents. Many of these items are accepted at no charge — visit www.co.scott.mn.us/HHW for details. Please bring a check or cash for those chargeable items, since credit cards are not currently accepted. The facility is located at 588 Country Trail East (Highway 282) in Spring Lake Township, one-half mile west of the intersection of Highways 13 and 282, and County Road 17. The HHW Facility is open at the following times: Wednesday: noon to 6 p.m. Thursday: noon to 4 p.m. Saturday: 8 a.m. to noon (Note: The RE-USE Room closes 15 minutes earlier) The HHW Facility will be CLOSED for major holiday weekends, including Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving, as well as the period of Dec. 20 through Jan. 5. The RE-USE Room is fi lled with a variety of good usable products, including paint, stain, varnish, thinner, putty, adhesives, household chemicals, yard and garden chemicals, automotive chemicals, electronics, etc., and all of these items are available for FREE (to anyone over the age of 18)! A trip to the RE-USE Room as you plan your next home improvement or craft project could certainly save you some money! Reduce the amount of HHW your family produces by practicing “Smart Shopping.” Measure carefully, buy only what you need, and then use what you buy. Store any leftovers carefully, and protect from freezing, so that they will remain usable. Please note: The HHW Facility can not accept automotive chemicals

Residents of Savage dropped off hundreds of appliances on Savage Recycling Day, including TVs, which (from left) Austin Scherer, Mike Dotson, Mike Flanders, Zac Isaak and Chad Issak from Certified Appliance Recycling, loaded onto a trailer. The parking lot at Savage Community Park was filled with garbage trucks last May, as well as trailers for Bridging where gently used household goods were collected to be donated to needy families.

in containers larger than 2½ gallons in size (fluids such as gas, oil, or antifreeze). Other unacceptable items include: household garbage, unknown materials, business waste (call for an appointment), radioactive items or sharps (needles). Regular alkaline batteries can be thrown in your household trash.

Train the Brain. Open Your Mind. Elle learned to read and discovered a world of meaning and possibility. As early as kindergarten, Elle struggled with learning to read and doing homework. School testing revealed she possessed a high IQ, but her low academic performance indicated a learning disability. Resolved to help their daughter, Renee and Paul enrolled Elle in special education and tutoring. Despite extensive efforts, Elle continued to fall behind. “We realized something had to be done to correct her specific learning disability,” Renee acknowledged. “That’s when we found LearningRx.“ A few months of ReadRx training strengthened the specific auditory and visualprocessing skills that Elle needed help with most. Now, Elle’s reading ability exceeds expectations and she’s tested out of special education services! Elle’s LearningRx trainer motivated and inspired her to work hard and celebrate her achievements. Renee says, “It has been amazing to watch our daughter discover that she can read and see how much it has improved her life!”

What’s holding your child back? Get to the root cause of your child’s struggles— their ability to focus, think and learn. Unlike tutoring that only re-teaches subject matter, our proven program strengthens the key parts of the brain that students need to learn and read better. The results are amazing.
