What's Roseville HRA Got in Mind for Dale Street Property?

The city's Housing and Redevelopment Authority presented its quarterly report to the Roseville Council Monday night, reviewing the Living Smarter initiative and announcing potential plans to buy property south of the Dale Street fire station.
The HRA is considering purchasing the Dale Street property, consolidating the land with the fire station lot and selling the two acres to developers for redevelopment housing.
“If you decide to do higher density here,” council member Tammy McGehee said, “I would encourage that if you do something, you look to the housing stock we have so we fill a void in the existing stock and also look to green space so there is adequate recreational space."
The HRA is also working on a new strategic plan. Work began in January and the HRA hopes to complete the process by June. So far it has conducted an online survey and met with key people in the community.
The HRA said its next steps include meeting later this month "to identify key issues and solutions" and that it would attend a Council meeting in May to review its draft plan with the Council.
HRA members called February’s Living Smarter fair a success after almost 1,100 people attended.
Jeanne Kelsey, the HRA’s program manager, said she wants to continue to expand the information the Living Smarter initiative provides.
“We want to continue to update our website and this can be as simple as ‘We recycle,’” she said.
