  • 20350 Excelsior Boulevard Shorewood, Minnesota - Shorewood

    Many people (my family included) bike and walk along Excelsior Blvd between Vine Hill and Manor Rd. A sidewalk or shoulder is desperately needed for safety. Many families with small children, people with dogs, elderly populations, and many cyclist groups utilize this road to access all that Shorewood and the surrounding neighborhoods have to offer. Excelsior Blvd along this stretch is a high traffic road where people drive very fast (tourists, church goers, uber/lyft drivers, and visitors to the area) yet there is low visibility with all the turns and trees, and it's VERY difficult to see pedestrians.

    I’d like to request a sidewalk extension or shoulder to be incorporated into the plans for the road reconstruction along this stretch of Excelsior Blvd. I believe a mill and overlay is scheduled for this fall, to which I am referring.

  • Mayflower Rd & Chaska Rd Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    I don’t know if this is allowed, but these two trailers have been parked on the side of Mayflower between Galpin and Chaska for months. Again today people walking their dog had to go in the street with car traffic to get around the trailers.
    It does not seem safe.
  • Tree Issue Archived
    5725 Featherie Bay Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Several trees have been removed impacting the road buffer and conditions around the homes. One very large old tree was removed late Fall last year and never replaced. This tree was an old oak that provided shelter for animals and served as a focal point on the path. We would like to see a new tree planted to replace it and provide shelter on the path. There was also a large tree damaged in a storm that died and was taken out. This tree provided coverage from the driveway that goes in and out of Badger Park and City Hall to the homes that are across the street. We now get headlights from all the traffic leaving the park directly to our house with the tree gone. Can this one also be replaced?
  • 6087-6199 Cathcart Dr Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    There are too many trees and shrubs on the trail side of where the trail crosses 62nd street and Cathcart road. It is really dangerous and hard for motorists coming down 62nd street from the church or heading south on Cathcart to see any walkers or bikers on the trail. And bikers and walkers to see cars coming from either direction. It's bad enough that the trail crosses in the middle of a 90 degree corner. Plus STOP signs for bikes and walkers need to be larger and in the middle of the trail to increase compliance with the STOP order. Recently an older cyclist blew through right in front of me, I had to brake hard, and then he flipped me the bird.
  • 23470 Highway 7 Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    At the horrible intersection just north of HWY 7 and 41:
    The stop sign for those that are approaching from Caribou Coffee is completely obscured by tree branches. Many people don't see the sign, so they do not stop.
  • Sweetwater Curv Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Sweetwater Curve at 19725 and 19735 is in horrible condition and has been since April. What is the plan to repair/replace this issue?
    Additionally, communication regarding this project is extremely inadequate. Residents affected by this issue should be receiving regular updates on the project. Even after giving my email address to the project coordinator, I have received absolutely no updates.

    5740 Echo Rd Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    I am concerned about 3 trees that are hovering over my house outside my fence on city property. There is one in particular that is right over my daughters room and it is alarming me. What can you please do about these as I mentioned they are outside my fence and on the city side of Badger Park. Thank you so much.
  • 20250 Excelsior Blvd Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    Fall of 2019 Excelsior Blvd was repaved. The repaved road is higher than it
    used to be. The water used to flow past our driveway, another 200-300 yards and then into the storm drain on the other side of the street to the east. Now all the water to the northwest of us runs down our driveway and yard and is carrying all the dirt and gravel from the road with it. It is also causing a gully to form where it is running through the back yard.
    We would like to get a 1-2" tar birm put in at our driveway head to keep the water on the street and moving to the storm drain. Please let us know when / if that can be done. Thank you, Dave and Lisa Alrick
  • 5460 Howards Point Rd Shorewood, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
    There are clusters of signs in this immediate area, on several properties, that violate the political sign rules. Please address this matter as soon as possible.
  • 4500-4622 Enchanted Ln Shorewood, MN, 55364, USA - Shorewood
    We are seeing a lot of people parking and fishing in this area. They are leaving a lot of trash on the lakeshore and hidden in the shoreline. Suggest either placing garbage cans or evaluating this zone for public parking and fishing
  • 6101-6143 Lake Virginia Dr Excelsior, MN, 55331, USA - Shorewood
