KENOSHA – The Village of Pleasant Prairie has applied for a 50 percent matching grant from the Acquisition and Development of Local Parks sub-program of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program to assist with the purchase of 0.19 acres of land with approximately 150 feet of Lake Michigan frontage in the Village of Pleasant Prairie in Kenosha County. Pleasant Prairie will provide match to the grant award.
The property is being acquired to expand existing Village-owned parkland in the Chiwaukee Prairie-Carol Beach area and improve public access to Lake Michigan. The additional lakeshore property will provide expanded opportunity for public hiking, fishing, trapping, cross country skiing, swimming, picnicking, and non-motorized boating access.
The DNR has made a preliminary determination that the proposed acquisition will not involve significant adverse environmental impacts and neither an environmental assessment nor environmental impact statement will be required for this action. Address public comments on the proposed acquisition to Vance Rayburn, Administrator, Customer and Employee Services Division, care of Tom Blotz, SER Government Outreach Supervisor, at 414-263-8610, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 26, 2009.
