City Council members Adam Cowell and Jim Heiland voted against the motion.


Hatlestad requested that the issue to reopen discussions be placed on the agenda at the regular meeting.

The Arlington City Council, during a recent regular meeting, received some good news and some bad news from  the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).


The good news is that a recent MnDOT speed study determined that the 45 mile per hour zone should be revised to a 40 mile per hour speed limit zone along Highway 5 on the northeast section of Arlington. The study also determined that the 60 mile per hour sign should be relocated to a point approximately 100 feet of Marion Drive which is a further easterly direction than the current location.


The bad news is that the revision in the speed limit fell short of the request from the City of Arlington.
