Public shoreline, road vacation discussion of Crosslake Council

According to a map posted in Crosslake City Hall, there are 28 separate areas of public shoreline on Manhattan Point alone. Often unmarked and undeveloped, those areas of public shoreline once again became the topic of conversation at the Oct. 13 Crosslake City Council meeting.

The council held a public hearing that night on the vacation of a portion of roadway which is at the corner of Manhattan Point Boulevard and a public right of way to the shore of Big Trout Lake. According to platts, that area of public land is called “Birch Beach.”

Gerald and Sandra Bilski made the request for the vacation, which is for about 2,300 square feet at the corner of their property. Their garage currently sits on the area of city land they are requesting the city to vacate. Vacating that area of land would also make the corner match up with other street corners nearby, as currently the corner is platted at an odd angle compared to other street corners in the area.
