Lake District Informational Open House
Open House regarding the formation of a Lake District
John's Bar, 1201 Madison Street, Beaver Dam
We are in the home stretch with over 600 signed petitions in support of the initiative to create a lake district. The lasting benefits of a district will include all lake property owners and your involvement is critical to its success.
We want to make sure we have provided an opportunity for everyone to have their questions and concerns addressed regarding a lake district. An informational open house will be held on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at John’s Bar, 1201 Madison Street, Beaver Dam from 2:00-9:00 pm. You can drop in to discuss the district and enjoy some pizza and soda.
Eric Olson, Director and Lake Specialist with UW Extension Stevens Point, will be presenting information at 3:00 pm and again at 7:00 pm. Eric and his team are responsible for helping citizens form and efficiently manage lake districts.
We, as Beaver Dam Lake property owners, are responsible for the welfare of our lake. As stewards of our land, we are entrusted to have a voice in its protection and improvement. We have a very personal stake in how the land and water is protected, and as such, request all in the community to take part in and help make positive changes. A lake district will provide the most stable financial support possible, as well as have the ability to undertake the remediation identified to improve the lake, that cannot be done by a lake association.
Over the course of the campaign, many have asked for other alternatives. Reaching out to various people in the state, agencies and lake organizations, the universal response has been that the ‘best method for lake management is through a district’. We at the BDLIA agree with this management approach to speak for and efficiently maintain our lake for the best use for the community.
Come, bring your neighbors, listen, ask questions and help make our lake better by signing your petition. Be part of the solution. If you have any questions, please call us at 920-356-1200.
