Title

RESOLUTION ACCEPTING A PERMANENT EASEMENT FOR PUBLIC RECREATIONAL, WALKWAY AND TRAIL PURPOSES IN CONNECTION WITH THE GRASSY POINT TRAIL FROM VERSO MINNESOTA WISCONSIN LLC UNDER, OVER, UPON, ACROSS, AND ALONG PROPERTY LOCATED IN THE IRVING NEIGHBORHOOD, AT NO COST TO THE CITY.

 

Body

CITY PROPOSAL:

RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are hereby authorized to accept, substantially in the form attached as Exhibit 1, from VERSO MINNESOTA WISCONSIN LLC, a non-exclusive, perpetual easement for public recreational, walkway, and trail purposes under, over, upon, across, and along the real property legally described on Exhibit A to the attached Exhibit 1 and depicted on Exhibit B to the attached Exhibit 1, at no cost to the City.

 

Statement of Purpose

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution authorizes the acceptance of a non-exclusive, perpetual easement for public recreational, walkway, and trail purposes from VERSO MINNESOTA WISCONSIN LLC (“Verso”), under, over, upon, across, and along property located near the intersection of S. Central Avenue and Waseca Industrial Road at no cost to the City. 

 

The acceptance of this easement allows for the continued use and maintenance of the existing Grassy Point Trail across Verso’s property.  Although the Grassy Point Trail was constructed in the 1990s and has been in use by the public continuously since construction, an easement from Verso was never recorded in the real estate records.  An aerial view of the easement area is attached as Exhibit 2.
