PRESIDENT’S PERSPECTIVE

President’s Perspective So, How Committed Are We?

Okay, you’ve heard me say that we’ve got energy. You’ve heard me say that the Saint Paul Area Chamber cares passionately about its members. You’ve heard me say that this region is the best in the United States. But have you believed me? How strongly do you believe that we are a Chamber that puts you first?

by Matt Kramer

We lobby every day at the capital, at city halls, and with the county on issues of business importance. We bring you great event programming that matters for your business. We even keep you updated with fantastic e-mail updates on everything from road construction to member news or TCAAP to the Port of Saint Paul. But none of this matters if you don’t believe we have an incredible team here, ready to support you. How good is our team?

FEATURE STORY

OVERVIEW Ramsey County has purchased 427 acres of land in Arden Hills from the U.S. Government to spur regional development and put unproductive land back on the tax rolls. The project, when completed, will generate millions of dollars annually in county and state property taxes. This addition to the tax base will benefit the entire county, including the city of St. Paul and suburban taxpayers.

Nearby highway improvements to Interstate 35W, I-694, Highway 10, Highway 96 and other roadways will benefit 240,000 commuters per day. These highway and bridge improvements are needed whether TCAAP is redeveloped or not.

Development of TCAAP will include a mix of residential, commercial, light industrial and other uses. In addition, the remediation project will clean up the state’s largest Superfund site for a fixed price, to be recovered when the land is ultimately sold for private development.

OFFICIAL ACTION

NEXUS

In 2012, Ramsey County purchased the site from the U.S. Government. The County Board approved a fixed-price agreement with Carl Bolander and Sons Co., for hazardous material abatement, demolition and site remediation.

The city of Arden Hills will prepare an Alternative Urban Areawide Review (AUAR) and Master Plan within 18 to 24 months. The City will recover its costs for the AUAR and Master Plan through development fees.

The total fixed-price contract amount is $22.6 million to bring the site to residential standards. This contract limits the county’s exposure to liability. The County will finance the deal with $21.4 million in bonding, a $6 million transfer from its solid waste fund and $2 million in contingency funds. The County will recover its costs for acquisition and remediation from land sale proceeds.

Redevelopment of TCAAP will serve as a catalyst for economic development and spur job creation in Ramsey County, the North Metro and the state of Minnesota.

The Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) and the Arden Hills Army Training Site (AHATS) comprise nearly 2,370 acres in the northern third of Arden Hills. With close proximity to Minneapolis and St. Paul, this property is a historic opportunity to create a new legacy.

TCAAP

MINNEAPOLIS

ST. PAUL

TCAAP Ramsey County officials are asking the State to prioritize transportation improvements needed to support redevelopment of the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant in Arden Hills. The County is seeking State funding for the following projects: • Interchange improvements at County Road 96 over I-35W. The state plans to re-deck the three-lane 96 bridge over I-35W, but local officials say it should be replaced and widened to relieve congestion. Work is estimated to cost $13.4 million. • Interchange improvements at I-35W and County Road H, including new bridges over I-35W and Rice Creek. The project is estimated to cost $13 million.

• A $6.5 million “spine road” that would run down the center of the property connecting County Roads 96 and H. The first phase of the project is a $2.15 million, quarter-mile access road into the site from 96 and a new signalized intersection across from North Heights Lutheran Church, at 1700 W. County Road 96. Funding for the work is requested from the Department of Employment and Economic Development’s Transportation and Economic Development Program.


THE POTENTIAL Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant The project brings back to life real estate that economic and social opportunity.

NEXUS

| Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce


PAST INTO POTENTIAL Construction of the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant began in 1941. Between 1942 and 1945, TCAAP produced small arms ammunition. The work force reached its peak in July 1943, when employment totaled about 26,000 people, more than half of whom were women. After WWII, the TCAAP was “mothballed.� Several redevelopment attempts have been made in the ensuing years, but none was successful. There were several attempts by private developers to negotiate a purchase with Government Services Administration (GSA) in the early 2000s, but they could not make the redevelopment plans work.

Seventy years ago 26,000 workers came to the TCAAP site each and every day, drawing a paycheck, supporting their families, and contributing to the economy. The TCAAP site has laid dormant for far too long. By purchasing TCAAP Ramsey County will accelerate the return of this property to the economic engine that it once was, ensuring a new generation of Minnesotans will report to work each day on the site, building a new future for themselves and their families. Much remains to be done, but no other site in the Twin Cities has the history to build on, and the future potential to explore, of the TCAAP property. Ramsey County is proud to accelerate the return of TCAAP into a viable and exciting economic engine for the county, for the region, and for the State.

Employment on the property once totaled more than 25,000 people. Today this opportunity could bring added employment and housing options to thousands of people .
