STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution exercises authority granted to municipalities by Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 282, to disapprove of reclassification of tax forfeited lands from conservation to non-conservation upon notification from the board of commissioners from the county in which the lands are located.


On October 20, 2006, the department of planning and development received a list of 108 parcels of tax-forfeited land reclassified to nonconservation by the Saint Louis County Board of Commissioners at their regular meeting on October 3, 2006. Planning department staff has reviewed all parcels with the City Planning Commission recommending objection to the reclassification of 51 of the 108 parcels. In conducting the review staff and the Planning Commission find continuing public purpose for retaining these parcels.


Summary of Recommendation

Parcels reclassified by the County Board:

108 parcels

Parcels recommended for “Conservation” class:

51 parcels

Parcels recommended for “Non-Conservation class and release for sale:

57 parcels


This resolution keeps the listed parcels from becoming part of the tax base. Not objecting to reclassification of the other 57 parcels on the list supports their eventual sale and change to a taxable status.
