Stewardship grant to City of Marion for frontage along the Mill Pond

Community access to Mill Pond and North Branch of Pidgeon River improved

GREEN BAY - The City of Marion has applied for a 50% matching grant from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program to assist with the purchase of .95 acres of land in the City of Marion along the Mill Pond in Waupaca County.

The property is being acquired to increase the community's access to the Mill Pond and the North Branch of the Pigeon River. This acquisition will support fishing, trapping, hiking, cross-county skiing, snowshoeing, picnicking, nature study, and other community activities. The property includes 360 feet of frontage on the water.

The proposed action is not expected to result in significant adverse environmental effects. The Department has made a preliminary determination that neither an environmental assessment nor environmental impact statement will be required for this action.

Address public comments on the proposed action to Vance Rayburn, Administrator, Customer and Employee Services Division, in care of Chris Halbur, by phone at 920-662-5121, or by e-mail at Comments must be received by February 23, 2009.
