With the fundraising deadline for the Eagle Tower Fund approaching in March, the committee will enter a 90 day waiting period while the Department of National Resources reviews the submissions of proposals sent in by potential suitors attempting to take on the project of rebuilding the iconic landmark within Peninsula State Park. The deadline for bid submissions is Wednesday January 4th. Following this date, Campaign Director Rachel Stollenwerk explained what important element will be included with those proposals for the DNR to review and consider when making their decision.
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. Stollenwerk believes that the list of potential bids will include some good plans that follow the required regulations for the new tower in accordance with ADA compliance. Stollenwerk believes that the committee should learn of the DNR’s selection in April.
