With a March meeting with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration looming, Kewaunee County officials want to be sure that they are doing everything they can to keep their chances of becoming a Marine Sanctuary alive. Kewaunee County Board member Lee Luft says that an open-to-the-public informational meeting to be held Monday at 7:00 pm in Algoma City Hall will be used educates citizens on just how much the Marine Sanctuary could mean to Kewaunee County and prepare them for the meeting with NOAA.
NOAA proposed the Lake Michigan National Marine Sanctuary along Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan coastline over a year ago but the original concept covered only Ozaukee, Sheboygan and Manitowoc Counties. The meeting with NOAA officials, which will also be open to the public, has been scheduled for Monday, March 13 at Knudson Hall in Algoma beginning at 6:30 p.m.
