AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE RECONVEYANCE OF CERTAIN PROPERTIES TO THE STATE OF MINNESOTA.

BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:

The city of Duluth does ordain:

Section 1. That the proper city officials are hereby authorized to execute and deliver the quit claim deed reconveying the following described property in St. Louis County, Minnesota, to the state of Minnesota with the request that it be reconveyed to DEDA:
Parcel 1. Endion Division, Block 2, and Lot 11 except the northwesterly 25 feet (1440-00340).

Section 2. That this ordinance shall take affect and be in force 30 days after its passage and publication.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:   This ordinance provides for the reconveyance of one lot which is to be incorporated into the Lakewalk Townhomes project. The reconveyance of these parcels is necessary to carry out the memorandum of understanding between the DEDA and Lakewalk Townhomes LLC and is attached to the file. In it DEDA agrees to assemble all publicly owned land in the project area. The developer (Lakewalk Townhomes LLC) agrees to convey sufficient lands for the extension of the Lakewalk through the area (see the Lakewalk Townhomes site plan) from those portions of the property it now owns and those parts that it acquires from the DEDA. The planning commission unanimously recommended approval of this ordinance at its regular meeting on September 24, 2003.
