The public will have a chance to give the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources feedback at a meeting tonight in Sturgeon Bay. People are encouraged to attend and share suggestions for future management of properties managed by the DNR in the region. The open house will cover the department’s master planning process for the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Ecological Landscape. The region includes Door, Oconto, Marinette and Shawano Counties. DNR Property Planning Section Chief Diane Brusoe says the hopes are to find out what recreational opportunities people want in the state parks and lands.
The public meeting for the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal regional master plan will be tonight at Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sturgeon Bay from 5 to 7 p.m. DNR officials will be on hand to answer any questions as well.
Also on Wednesday, Nov 15, Crivitz: Community Center, 901 Henriette Ave.
In addition to the meetings, people may submit comments to the DNR by mail or email or through a questionnaire to fill out online through the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal region planning page of the DNR website. The public comment period for the first phase of planning is open through Nov. 28, 2017.
