Rail spur proposal tabled for six weeks
A proposal by Crow Wing Recycling to lease land from the BNSF Railway has been presented to the Brainerd City Council.
Crow Wing Recycling wants to use a rail spur to load scrap material into train cars for transport. To do that, the city must first vacate to BNSF a platted but unbuilt portion of Front Street that extends into the rail yard. Crow Wing Recycling’s operation would also require a conditional use permit from the city.
