When a person is hitting a golf ball, the ball travels over a great deal of space and anyone who happens to be within that space is at danger of being hit. Even the most skilled golfers will occasionally hit an errant shot and that can be very dangerous to anyone in that path. If people feel unsafe in a park because a golfer is trying to play there, the park is less likely to be used for its intended purpose.
Daily permits are available on site; annual permits are available through the Dakota County Parks website at www.co.dakota.mn.us/parks, or by calling 952-891-7000.
For these reasons, property owners are encouraged to leave the buffers around storm ponds in their natural state.
While the City appreciates and values the aesthetic benefit that trees provide, it is strongly recommended to avoid planting trees along the boulevards (the area between the curb and the sidewalk), or within the right-of-way (generally 30 feet in each direction from the center of the street).
Trees planted in the right-of-way cause numerous problems such as:
The City reserves the right to trim or remove trees in the right-of-way that are obstructing signs or causing hazardous conditions for pedestrians or vehicles. As a general rule, all trees should be planted at least 20 feet from the edge of the curb and outside the public right-of-way or any public easements. In addition, care should be taken to plant at least 15 feet from any existing structure (sidewalk, driveway, house, hydrant, power lines, water shut-off valve, etc.) in order to avoid costly damage from heaving roots. These distances are minimums; the more clearance provided, the less likely it is that future problems or conflicts will develop.
The following is a list of acceptable trees from the City’s landscape ordinance:
Due to their large root structure, insect problems, and/or susceptibility to storm damage, the City strongly discourages the planting of the following trees in yards:
Mailboxes that have been directly hit by a snowplow will be repaired at the City’s expense as soon as time and weather permit. In certain cases, immediate repairs will be made in order to avoid mail delivery disruptions. Please email the Public Works Department or use our Reporting Tool to report a damaged mailbox. Please note: the City is not responsible for mailboxes knocked over by snow rolling off the plows. To avoid potential damage to your mailbox, please make sure it is installed according to the City specifications.
All other City streets (excluding those in private developments) are plowed by the Rosemount Public Works Department according to the following priorities:
1. Main thoroughfares 2. Streets providing access to schools and commercial businesses 3. Low volume residential streets 4. City parking lots and ice rinks, and certain sidewalks and trails
In most cases, plowing will commence after snowfall exceeds two inches and will continue until all streets are cleared of snow and ice. Generally, for snowfall events that begin after 6:00 P.M., plowing will begin the following morning at 2:00 A.M.
Visit the Maps page to see the priority plowing map, the trail and sidewalk plowing map, and other City maps.
The Public Works Department is responsible for clearing snow and ice from certain sidewalks and trails after a snowfall exceeding two inches. Sidewalk and trail plowing occurs only after all City streets have been cleared of snow and ice. The Snowplowing Policy includes a map of all sidewalks and trails that will be cleared by City staff. Sidewalks and trails not shown on the map are the responsibility of the homeowner and should be cleared of snow and ice within 48 hours of the end of the snowfall event. See the trail and sidewalk plowing map and other City maps.
Citizens can register to receive a text message or email when the city begins snowplow operations.
Polluted stormwater runoff can have many adverse effects on plants, fish, animals and people. Sediment can cloud the water and make it difficult for aquatic plants and habitat to survive. Excess nutrients can cause algae blooms. When algae die they sink to the bottom and decompose in a process that removes oxygen from the water. Fish and other aquatic organisms cannot exist in water with low dissolved oxygen levels.
Household hazardous wastes like insecticides, pesticides, paint, solvents, used motor oil and automotive fluids can poison aquatic life. Surface water pollution in these forms can pose a health hazard to animals and people.
Polluted stormwater often affects drinking water sources such as ground water or other surface water features from which the potable supply is drawn. This, in turn, can affect human health and increase drinking water treatment costs.
The City of Rosemount has developed its very own Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP) designed to meet the specific needs and issues within the community.
Nonpoint source pollutants include nutrients such as phosphorous and nitrogen, leaking septic tanks, sediment, pesticides, salt, construction site erosion, forestry operations, animal waste, trace metals and toxic chemicals. Individually, these pollutants may not be a major concern, but taken as a whole, they can result in widespread water quality problems that will need to be addressed.
In response to this new legislation, the City of Rosemount has developed a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) to address the issues associated with stormwater pollution. The plan is designed to prevent the spread of pollutants by applying Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Public Education which aim to reduce the concentration of common pollutants and eliminate the pollutant sources. The SWPPP is a collaboration of ordinance, policy and public education. The Surface Water Management Ordinance and Erosion Control Policy stipulate strict requirements relating to fertilizer application, wetland protection and erosion control application(s). Public education focuses on the lifestyle habits and practices of the community and identifies which habits and practices are influencing stormwater pollution. Efforts are focused on these particular issues.
Traffic signs and pavement markings have very specific installation criteria and regulations. The City utilizes the Minnesota Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD) to determine the need and appropriateness for a traffic signal to be installed. Before a sign can be installed, traffic conditions (both vehicular and pedestrian) are reviewed, sometimes requiring an extensive engineering analysis. Based on this review, if the necessary criteria are met, consideration might be given to install a traffic sign. Before requesting a sign installation, please consider that traffic signs (stop signs in particular) may actually contribute to a greater problem if used unnecessarily. National studies have shown that too many stop signs and/or unwarranted stop signs create a host of undesirable safety conditions, such as increased speeds between signs, decreased compliance, and increased incidence of rear-end collision. With that in mind, you may contact the Public Works Department at 651-322-2022 if you feel there is a justifiable need for a traffic sign in your neighborhood. If you have a specific traffic or safety concern (such as speeding or parking violations) you may contact the Rosemount Police Department at 651-423-4491.
Most streetlights are maintained by your electrical service provider. See a map of electrical service areas in Rosemount. If the streetlight is located in one of the green areas, contact the Public Works Department at (651) 322-2022. Otherwise, contact the appropriate service provider.
Iron and manganese, harmless minerals that occur naturally in well water, can cause discoloration. A malfunctioning water softener may also cause discoloration. In the spring, routine hydrant flushing may stir up deposits within the pipes, resulting in rusty/discolored water. This can be cleared up by turning on all the cold water faucets (including bath and shower) at the same time and letting them run for a few minutes to clear the lines. Discolored water is perfectly safe for consumption and bathing. You should avoid doing laundry until the discoloration clears up. If you have a load that was washed during the discoloration, do not put it in the dryer. You should rewash the items as soon as possible after you have flushed your faucets.
All hydrants are flushed in the spring to ensure that water lines are working properly, and to remove iron deposits from the lines. Hydrant flushing occurs after the first street sweeping operation in order to minimize the amount of winter salt and sand that is washed into the storm sewer system. During flushing, it is normal to notice a temporary drop in water pressure and some water discoloration. Please see the water discoloration FAQ for more information.
In addition, owners and operators of a public water supply must prepare a Wellhead Protection Plan, which includes:
