Commissioner concerned about maintenance Work could soon begin on a portion of the Swedish Immigrant Trail, a project that has been in the works for years on the eastern side of Chisago County. Environmental Services, Zoning and Parks Director Kurt Schneider came before the Chisago County Board of Commissioners May 6 to request that the board advertise for bids for the project, which would include construction of a 2.2-mile trail segment from Tern Avenue east to the Interstate Park boundary. Schneider said he could present the board with bids by June 17. He noted at more than $1.6 million, the cost of the project is a concern. However, he said if the county moved forward with the project, more than $1.3 million of that cost could be paid for by a Legacy grant.

Funding for the grant program is from the Parks and Trails Fund crea ...
