The New Ulm City Council will consider a proposal to expand the boundary of Flandrau State Park during its meeting this (TUE) evening. The Minnesota DNR has proposed the boundary expansion of just over three-quarters of an acre to be used as a buffer along a wooded hillside. Landowners Robert and Patti Bode have requested that their land be included in the park’s boundary. The property is wooded with steep slopes, and the park abuts the south and west sides. In other business this evening, the council will hold a public hearing concerning the final approval of “City Ridge Industrial Park” in the Airport Industrial Park on the west end of town. The council will also consider renewing the Kiesling House lease to The Grand Center for Arts and Culture for offices and galleries. The building will be vacated by the organization when it’s Arts Center in the Grand Hotel is completed. Today’s New Ulm City Council meeting begins at 5pm at city hall.
