Old Business
Representatives from St. Louis County and MNDNR Parks were present to inform the Township of the intent to vacate Pickeral Lake Road. There is no platted right of way from McCarthy Beach Road to the Park boundary. The County only has a prescriptive easement which is the width of the existing road. The road passes through 2 private properties. The road is too narrow to allow snow removal or grading. Access to the Pickeral Lake area will be from the north on Ski Trail Road. The County will be meeting with the property owners and feel the process will be complete in approximately 2 years.
