Crow Wing Township has been working Region Five Development Commission and Crow Wing County
Emergency Management to seek a federal grant for the construction of a safe house (storm shelter) at Crow Wing Estates.
If you are interested in partnering with us to work on this project, please call 218/822-3985
to let us know. If the grant is approved, the community is required to cover 25% of the project costs. This amount can be
made up of monetary contributions, discounted building supplies and/or volunteer hours.
PLEASE NOTE: We are not able to accept garbage or construction debris for recycling at the town hall. Also, the dumpster
near the shed is not for private use. We are having a problem with someone dropping off their remodeling project waste at
the town hall. This is NOT okay and will be prosecuted. We recently installed a new surveillance camera that will help us
identify who is doing this, but if you know who it might be, please let us know. In the meantime, the residents of Crow Wing
Township are paying for someone else's refuse.
If you know of events in the community that may be of interest to other residents, please contact
218/822-3985 to have them posted here.
Outside Storage Violations
The planning commission and town board are hard at work following up on complaints about excess junk and debris
properties, blowing garbage, etc. If you have a problem on your property, please begin to take care of it, before it ends
up on our violation list. The township does bill all expenses for resolving violations to the property owner and, if remaining
unpaid, these expenses are assessed to the property taxes for the parcel concerned. Let's all work together to improve the
appearance and health of our community.
Please note that the recycling center is now closed Please take recycling items to the Crow Wing County Landfill.
VANDALISM - Help us Stop it
We have recently had issues at the Barrows Community Park
with vandalism. We have received a physical description of two of the boys involved.
The picnic tables have been vandalized over the summer, as well as the light on the flag
pole, the pavillion, the outlet covers (all power has been turned off), light bulbs and some of the equipment has been abused.
We have also had graffiti sprayed on the back of the recycling shed.
If you know who is responsible for any of these acts, please call 822-3985. You may give
information anonymously if you prefer. Or you can report it directly to the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Dept.
We appreciate your help to prevent further damage and unnecessary taxpayer expense.
The township park has newly installed horseshoe
pits at the park for league play. If you are interested in joining a team, please call or email Connie Bachman, 829-7096
The horseshoe pits will be open to anyone when a tournament is not taking
place and even then, you can probably join in. (bring your own horseshoes)
ANIMAL CONTROL - DOGS
At this point, the town board has not found an affordable method of dog control. If you have
a stray dog on your property you can take it directly to H.A.R.T. If the dog is dangerous, please, as always, contact the
County Sheriffs Department.
CROW WING TOWNSHIP has a new email address.....
Please update your records
As many of you know, Crow Wing Township inherited a number of land use violations from the
county when we took over planning & zoning administration and others have occurred since then. One of the reasons we assumed
these responsibilities was the number of requests we received from residents about cleaning up the garbage, junk vehicles
and debris in the township. There has been considerable progress made. For more information, check the
Planning & Zoning page on this website.
