The document gives the city a permanent trail easement through the company’s property for the planned future trail project, while Red Wing Grain gets use of some city land. The agreement has been negotiated over several years, according to a staff report. The city gains the land it needs for a trail connecting Levee Park to Bay Point Park along the Mississippi River, going through part of Red Wing Grain’s property.
