Applicants must submit the following information with an annexation application in order for the
application to be accepted. Only those informational items including a box and space for the initials
of a City representative may be waived. The items will be considered waived only if initialed and
dated by the appropriate City representative.

____ 1.      CRT date: _________________________________________ (insert date).

____ 2.      Filing fee of $700, Escrow $1,000

____ 3.      A copy of this Submittal Checklist completed by the applicant and containing the initials
             of the appropriate City representative for any information item that has been waived.

____ 4.      Twenty (20) copies of the following (i) completed application form (see page 6); (ii)
             vicinity map (8 ½” x 11”); and (iv) zoning map (24” x 36”) containing information on page

             such names and addresses appear on the latest records of the Hennepin County Clerk

(763) 428-2253                                                                          Revised 9/11/07

____ 9.             If special provisions are requested with the rezoning, such as a development
                    agreement, ten (10) copies of a letter requesting such provisions shall be submitted.
                    The letter shall identify any special terms or conditions requested by the petitioner(s).

____ 10.            Two (2) copies of a Phase I Environmental Report prepared by a qualified specialist in
                    accordance with current guidelines issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection
                    Agency. The report must bear suitable evidence of the professional qualifications of the
                    person or firm who prepared the report.

____ 11.            Rezoning Assessment – One (1) copy of a report evaluating the rezoning request with
                    respect to compatibility with existing uses and zoning in the vicinity of the property. The
                    report must explain why the uses permitted by right under the zoning district(s) being
                    requested would be compatible with existing uses and existing zoning in the vicinity.
                    The report must include an assessment of the rezoning request demonstrating
                    consistency with the policies of the Rogers Comprehensive Master Plan.

_____ 12.           The report must include a section that provides specific evidence on which to make
                    each of the following findings. In assessing these findings, it must be assumed that the
                    property is developed into the use permitted by right that would result in the greatest
                    impacts (worse case scenario) for the impact being assessed. For example, if traffic
                    impacts are being assessed, then the impact assessment must be based on the use
                    permitted by right that generates the highest number of vehicle trips. If compatibility
                    with adjacent uses is being assessed, then the use by right that would be most
                    incompatible must be the bases for the assessment.

             (i)           The purposes set forth in the Rogers Municipal Code would be met if any use
                           permitted by right in the zone district being requested was developed on the
                           subject property.

            (ii)           Development of the subject property pursuant to any of the uses permitted by
                           right under the zoning district being requested would result in development that is
                           compatible with existing land uses adjacent to and in close enough proximity to
                           the subject property to be effected by development of it.

            (iii)          Development of the subject property pursuant to any of the uses permitted by
                           right under the zoning district being requested would result in impacts on City
                           infrastructure and services that are consistent with current infrastructure and
                           services master plans.

           (iv)          Development of the subject property pursuant to any of the uses permitted by
                         right under the zoning district being requested would result in development that is
                         not detrimental to the health, safety, or welfare of the neighborhood or general

                  surface owners of record of all properties that fall wholly or partially within 350 feet of

                  names and addresses appear on the latest records of the Hennepin County Clerk and
                  Recorder. Please call (612) 348-5910 to acquire this list.

A.    Application: A rezoning application is required to change the zone district of property
      currently existing in the City of Rogers city limits. Rezoning of property requires a public
      hearing before the Planning Commission and City Council. The Planning Commission makes
      a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council makes the final decision on the
      rezoning request.

B.    City review and determination of complete application: Prior to submittal of a rezoning
      application, a Conceptual Review Team (CRT) meeting with the City is required. Once a CRT
      has been complete, a submittal of the application may occur.

C.    Mineral Estate owners (if any) Notification: A minimum of 30 days prior to the scheduled
      public hearing the applicant must give written notice, by first class mail, to the mineral estate
      owners identified on the list required under Item 7 in the submittal checklist. The notice must
      state the date, time, and location of the public hearing and the nature of the application being
      considered by the City. Failure to provide the required affidavit or evidence of a defective
      mailing list will result in a cancellation of the public hearing until proper notices are provided.
