Public meeting to consider tax abatement bonds for Superior National at Lutsen Tuesday

Sun, 09/21/2014 - 10:24pm

The Cook County/Grand Marais Economic Development Authority (EDA) appeared before the county board on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, asking the board to schedule a public hearing on the EDA’s proposal to have the county issue tax abatement bonds for $2 million to fund continued improvements at Superior National at Lutsen (SNL) golf course. The hearing was scheduled for September 23 at 10 a.m. in the commissioners room.

Howard Hedstrom, who was appointed to the EDA board in January, said, “I’m new to the EDA, but the EDA is not new to the golf course business.”

Hedstrom shared what he had learned in his brief tenure, that the EDA had created a plan for development of SNL with Golf Course Architect Jeff Brauer of Golfscapes. He said phase 1 of the improvements would be done in September 2014 and phase 2 is expected to be completed by mid-September 2015. Hedstrom said the EDA has been handling all the “mundane details” of the construction project.

Hedstrom said the EDA was surprised when it learned from its bonding firm Ehlers & Associates that it was going to be very expensive to seek traditional general obligation bonds. “We found out that if we go out for tax abatement bonds, we’d save $1.4 million over the term of the contract.”

Hedstrom asked the county board, “Why wouldn’t you want to save $1.4 million? It makes the chance for success for the project that much better.”
