as printed in the Park Rapids Enterprise
onĀ  Saturday, September 28, 2013


The Parks & Trails Division of the Department of Natural Resources has obtained an option to purchase a 0.56 acre percel of land located in Section 35, Township 141 North, Range 34 West, Lake Emma Township, Hubbard County, Minnesota, owned by Polly A. Boggs, for the purpose of improving the existing public water access site in the southeast corner of Big Sand Lake. Proposed improvements would include a new and expanded bituminous parking area, a double concrete plank ramp with floating docks, stormwater retention ponds to accommodate runoff and aquatic invasive species best management practices. Provisins would be made for portable toilets. One residential structure and a detached garage are located on the site. The project would be tentatively scheduled for the 2015 construction season.


Comments will be accepted from the public concerning this proposal until 4:30 p.m. Thursday, October 31, 2013. Comments can be sent to David Schotzko, Area Supervisor, Department of Natural Resources, Parks & Trails Division, 3296 State Park Road NE, Bemidji, MN 56601 or david.schotzko@state.mn.us.
