Comment deadline 6/23 on Kohler golf plan's state park impact

Updated with corrected headline:
"Comment deadline 6/23 on Kohler golf plan's state park impact"
Earlier today I put up a post about the City of Sheboygan slowing down a fast-tracked annexation of hundreds of acres in the neighboring Town of Wilson where the Kohler Co. wants to bulldoze, cut, fill and otherwise convert a nature preserve into a high-end golf course along Lake Michigan.


Here's how to email your objections about the project to the state, but the comment deadline is just around the corner, so heads up.


A regularly-scheduled meeting in St. Croix County of the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board - - the separate body which oversees the Wisconsin Natural Resources Department - - has on its June 28th agenda a proposed rewriting of the Kohler Andrae State Park's Master Plan which could make it easier for the golf course to proceed and even take some parkland.


*  Here is the specific item on the agenda.


*  Here is the Board's full agenda with meeting site information.


*  Here is information about where to email your objections to this project, and please note the deadline is this Friday morning, less than 48 hours away, as Friends of the Black River Forest and other opponents reminds you.:

Comments are due by Friday, June 23rd at 11:00.  
Tell the DNR you are opposed to the both the destruction of the beautiful, rare, open and forested Great Lakes sand dune ecosystem and the give away of publicly owned state park lands for the exclusive use and destruction by Kohler, a for-profit, private company. 
Kohler Company is requesting to take State Owned land to build an entrance to the golf course and a maintenance building. He wants all of this built on our STATE LAND.  He has his own access to the property and plenty of room to build a maintenance building.
