RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF ST. LOUIS COUNTY TO RECLASSIFY FROM CONSERVATION TO NONCONSERVATION AND TO OFFER FOR SALE CERTAIN TAX FORFEITED PARCELS NOW WITHHELD FROM SALE IN CONSERVATION.

BY PRESIDENT GILBERT:

RESOLVED, that the board of county commissioners of St. Louis County is hereby requested to reclassify from conservation to nonconservation and to offer for sale the following tax forfeited parcels now withheld from sale in conservation:
 
File # Appl. Name Legal Description Location
00087 Ken Landwehr Twp 50, Range 14, Section 7, north half of southwest quarter of southwest quarter of southeast quarter (10-2710-2230) and west half of west half of south half of southwest quarter of southwest quarter of southeast quarter except 13/100 acres for road (10-2710-2245) north side of Arrowhead Road and west of Swan Lake Road (Duluth Heights)


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: City planning commission reviewed requests at their regular July 11, 2000, meeting and recommended this parcel for reclassification. The parcels located in areas where planning groups are active were reviewed for consistency with plans for those neighborhoods. With pending development of the comprehensive plan, the planning commission has taken a more conservative approach to reviewing requests for reclassification. Only requests where there is a hardship or the development of the parcel will be a nonissue are given serious consideration.
