The city of Woodbury says Tamarack Hills I defaulted on its development agreement because of shoddy landscaping.
City council members voted 4-0 Wednesday to declare Commercial Equity Partners, operating as Tamhills LLC, in default on the agreement for the development on the northeast corner of Tamarack Road and Bielenberg Drive. The developer’s agreement dates to May 2006.
Dwight Picha, Woodbury’s community development director, said landscaping never was completed and some plants are dead. The developer has failed to replace the dead landscaping.
Tamhills LLC will have an opportunity to respond to the council’s actions, Picha said, but if the problem is not fixed the city will draw from the developer’s credit line to make the improvements.
That credit is still available because the Tamarack Hills project is not complete, Picha said. Nine lots have been developed, but three remain undeveloped.
A representative of Tamhills LLC could not be reached for comment.
