Annexation by Chaska

As a result of continuing growth in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, Chaska Township was annexed by the city of Chaska. The township dissolved on February 11, 2005. [3] Current plans call for 600 acres (2.4 km2) of the former township, about half of the annexed land, to be developed in a project called "Heights of Chaska". The planned development includes housing, two neighborhood retail centers, community parks and an elementary school. The plan is in line with Metropolitan Council desires for "smart growth". [4]
