Cook County Seeking Members of the Public to Serve on Passion Pit Committee

Cook County Seeking Members of the Public to Serve on Passion Pit Committee

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~  February 27, 2021  (SLN)  The Cook County Board of Commissioners is seeking members of the public to serve on a committee that will assist the Board in determining whether the County should acquire a MN DOT parcel east of Grand Marais, locally known as the Passion Pit. 

The Passion Pit area located off of the Old Shore Road, in Grand Marais, Minnesota,  has been used by local residents and tourists as an access to a small beach on Lake Superior, however, MN DOT is considering selling its parcel to either a local unit of government or to a private party.  There has been some interest expressed in maintaining the property in public ownership due to its historic connection with the old Chippewa City area and heritage, and as a local access to the beach.

The Cook County Board of Commissioners is convening an 11-member committee consisting of local government, parks & trails and historical society membership, and members of the public to run through a very deliberative and public process.  Of the members from the public, the Commissioners are hoping to gain representation from residents of the immediate area as well as from the overall community at large, and from Grand Portage and historic Chippewa City family descendants.  The Board of Commissioners welcomes a diversity of perspectives regarding the disposition of the MN DOT parcel.

This Passion Pit committee has been set up for a 12-month period of time that would start from its first meeting date, which is anticipated to take place in late April or early May.  Applications will be accepted from the public up until 5:00 p.m., Friday, March 26th and may be dropped off at the Cook County Courthouse, emailed to: tim.nelson@co.cook.mn.us  or mailed to: Cook County Land Services to 411 W 2nd St. Grand Marais, MN 55604.

For an application, you may visit our website at www.co.cook.mn.us or you may contact the Cook County Land Services Department at 218-387-3630 for an application or if you have any questions.
