NOTICE OF DECISION – COMMISSIONER OF TRANSPORTATION – RAILBANK

The State of Minnesota, acting through its Commissioner of Transportation on March 2, 2020, has determined that the sale of a section of rail bank in Albany has no adverse effect on the rail bank corridor.

The cash sale of a 34 foot strip of rail bank property to the city of Albany out of the total corridor width of 134 feet, is deemed consistent with the preservation of the rail bank corridor.  This notice is published pursuant to Minnesota Statute 222.63, subd. 3, and Minnesota rules 8830.5820 and 8830.5840.  

The state reviewed the need for the sale and solicited comments to the proposed sale of a small strip of the rail bank.  

A public meeting was held at the Albany City Hall on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, where no comments were received during the 30 day public comment period, which ended on February 28, 2020.  

The 50 foot sale to the city is 11,528 square feet.  It is located in Albany, Stearns County.  The city requested the State to sell a strip of rail bank for economic development in the city.  The State plans no conditions on the sale to the city.  The consideration for the sale will be $14,400. 

After the sale of the rail bank to the City, the City plans to sell the parcel to a private business owner.
