Nov 28, 2017 11:30 AM  Land Conservation & Forest Management Committee Special Meeting

The Chair indicated that, as reported in the minutes of the October 18th, 2017, LCFM Committee meeting, a citizen has placed a verbal request that the gate in the County Forest, located at 300th Avenue and County Hwy E, be opened for motorized use during frozen ground conditions.

There was general discussion. Discussion focused on:

1. The process of amending the Chippewa County Comprehensive Forest Plan.

2. The concept of changing the language in the plan so that all or selected gates identified

in the plan could be more readily opened/closed without amending the plan.

Motion to initiate the process to amend the County Forest Plan: Sikorski/Steele.

Supervisor Willkom voted no. Motion carried 5-1.
