BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:
RESOLVED, that the Saint Louis County Board of Commissioners is hereby requested to free convey to the city of Duluth the following tax forfeited parcel for street and utility purposes.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution requests that the Saint Louis County Board of Commissioners free-convey the described tax forfeited land for street and utility purposes.
This request is to provide secondary access to Sugarloaf Skyline Estates. Current access to this subdivision is off Skyline Parkway. A second access is required for full build out of the 73 lots within the proposed subdivision.
This preliminary subdivision request for Sugarloaf Skyline Estates was reviewed by the city planning commission at its regular meeting of Wednesday, April 26, 2006. The planning commissioners voted 8-0-2 to approve the preliminary subdivision with the following conditions:
1. A second access right of way is to be secured prior to submission of the final plat.
2. Language included in the plat or documents that permits pedestrian use of the outlots for trails.
This free conveyance of tax-forfeited land to the city is a public-to-public transfer; therefore, there is no tax base impact at this time. In addition, the land will not be available to join the tax base in the future.
