Rail Corridor development committee meets this week

The Railroad Corridor Development Committee will have its second meeting Thursday.

The meeting will not be televised, but it will begin at 4 p.m. at Bemidji City Council Chambers.

Items on the agenda include updates from the Port Authority, Kraus Anderson, Sanford Health and Greater Bemidji; and scheduled discussions on anticipated project timelines and ongoing communication.

Sanford Health has announced a plan to invest $10 million into a wellness facility that they would operate.

The Wellness Center is not planned to be City owned or operated.

The city-owned Rail Corridor may have some significant clean-up costs, and developing the site would still require some city investment into infrastructure, too.

The meeting Thursday is open to the public.
