Rec area plan considered

In December 2016, the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board approved the master plan for the Sauk Prairie State Recreation Area. The board’s approval of the master plan was challenged in court and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources was directed to hold a contested case hearing to gather additional information about the planning process and potential impacts associated with implementing the master plan. The hearing was held in January 2019.

At the Oct. 22 board meeting, the department will ask the board to reconsider its approval of the master plan, to consider the evidence presented at the hearing, and then take action on the master plan. The department will then ask the board to formally designate the property as the Sauk Prairie State Recreation Area.

The deadline for board liaison to receive written comments or request to testify is 11 a.m. Oct. 18.
