At the October 9, 2017 City Council meeting, the Council approved a supplement to the assessment roll to extend the interest-free period to October 1, 2018 and move the additional deadlines back as follows:

  • Payment due to the City of Chanhassen Finance Department by October 1, 2018 and no interest will be collected.
  • Payment due to the City of Chanhassen Finance Department between     October 2, 2018 and December 31, 2018 and interest owed will be calculated from October 2 to the date paid.
  • If payment is not received by the City of Chanhassen Finance Department by     December 31, 2018, the assessments are to be proposed for a 10-year term at an interest rate of 5.75% to appear on the County tax statements. Interest will be collected each year based on the outstanding principal owed on the assessment.


This project includes the reconstruction of Minnewashta Manor neighborhood in the summer of 2017.

Project Notifications Disclaimer
Due to the variability of construction, updates typically do not include specific details such as day-to-day scheduled activity. The City's inspector or contractor will notify occupants directly if they will be impacted by a utility service shut down (example: water shutoff), or work (such as excavation or new curb) that will impede access to the property for a period of hours or days.
