The DNR is having an Open House at the Obey Interpretive Center from 4-7 PM this Tuesday, January 17. The purpose is to provide information about the Chippewa Moraine State Recreation Area Master Plan, now undergoing revision. DNR staff will share information about the upcoming planning process and public participation opportunities, and hear what issues the public would like to see included in the plan review. You will be able to see maps and information about the property, and have a chance to talk with agency representatives at the open house.
This is just a stage in the planning process, and no revised plan has been developed for presentation. Rather, it is for gathering concerns and ideas from the public about what should be included in the master plan, which will guide how the park is developed and used in the coming years.
A questionnaire will be offered, as well as copies of the property analysis and participation plan.
The DNR has a webpage with much of the information available: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/lands/masterplanning/ChipMoraine/index.html. There are links to the reports and maps on that page. You can sign up to receive emails about the planning process on that page.
After the comments are analyzed, a proposed master plan will be presented later this spring, along with another opportunity for comment.
