Before the commissioner may acquire or dispose of land in the game preserves, areas, and projects established under section 84A.01, 84A.20, or 84A.31, in any county, the commissioner must prepare a county land acquisition and disposition plan. The plan must identify the general areas where the commissioner intends to acquire or dispose of land and their accompanying reasons. The plan must emphasize a balance of uplands and wetlands.
The plan must be submitted to the county board for review and comment. The board must notify the commissioner of natural resources of any concerns or disagreements with the plan within 90 days after receiving the plan or proposal.
The county board must submit appraisals for land offered for sale under this section to the commissioner for review at least 30 days before the date of the sale.
