WI ski hill expansion requires state park acreage

They want to expand little Granite Peak into a world-class ski experience - - and will the DNR fork over 150 acres of public park land to make it happen?

Interesting that this is on the table just as Milwaukee County declined to sell a very small park parcel.

As is a proposal to convert a privately-owned nature preserve along Lake Michigan south of Sheboygan into a high-end golf course, including the transfer of some public acreage from Kohler-Andrae State Park for a road and equipment storage.

Though the legislatively-mandated plan to have a willing DNR sell 10,000 acres of public land is being implemented.

This is too bad. Why should we give up state park land so some jerk from Chicago can make more money? I wonder how much he gave to Walker (notice I didn't say "the campaign because why even hide it anymore?).
