FHR Offers To Donate Land To Hastings

The Hastings City Council has been asked to accept a land donation from Flint Hills Resources. According to information provided to the Council, the 14.3-acre parcel of land adjoins Lake Rebecca Park and used to be a part of the barge fueling tank farm off of Lock and Dam Road. City staff approached Flint Hills over 2 years ago to inquire if they had interest in donating this piece of land to the City to extend the Lake Rebecca Park area. Since that time, city staff and Flint Hills Resources staff have worked to bring this donation to reality. A Phase 1 Environmental Assessment of the property has been completed and no significant findings were recorded. This satisfies the duty to investigate potential environmental concerns. This parcel would also be a part of habitat enhancement work proposed in Lake Rebecca Park through the LCCMR grant funding. City Staff recommend accepting this land donation. A resolution to accept the donation was placed on the Consent Agenda for the July 5th City Council meeting.
