Inter-trust exchange details
Lewis County Cemetery District 3 is interested in purchasing 1.27 acres of state trust land adjacent to the Doty/Dryad Cemetery for cemetery expansion. In order to make the purchase possible, DNR proposes to switch that parcel’s trust designation from State Forest Transfer Trust land (which cannot be sold under state law) to Common School Trust land, which may be sold. To change trust designations, a parcel of equal valued Common School Trust land elsewhere in Lewis County would be re-designated as State Forest Transfer Trust land. The Cemetery District could then purchase the newly designated Common School Trust land for its expansion.
