Proposed Dondelinger Auto Center development on the corner of Highway 371 and Co

Baxter petitions for annexation of land in proposed auto development


BAXTER — A fast-moving permit process at the Crow Wing County level had Baxter officials considering options for annexation Wednesday.

The subject rose so quickly, the city had to add the item to its agenda at the last minute.

At issue is the proposed Dondelinger auto center development on the corner of Highway 371 and County Highway 77. Preliminary site plans at the city show a Dondelinger Chevrolet Cadillac and Hyundai development along with a body shop at the corner.
