12-10-2017 Alert From Sam! Recreation Opportunity Analysis – Southern Gateways Region

Posted by

Area AWSC members:

This ROA (Recreational Opportunity Analysis covers Lafayette, Iowa Richland, Adams, Sauk, Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Jefferson, Rock and Green Counties.

We all have an opportunity to record our favorite uses in this area on the following link: I just pasted it into my browser and it came up to fill out on Survey Monkey. ( Mike, please forward to all of our DCCSC contacts.)

It takes just a few minutes. We need to get very member we can to choose snowmobiling as a preferred recreational use. I request that all of you get this out on Facebook and get this sent to all of your members to do.  We cannot afford to pass this opportunity up.




Thanks to all!

Subject: Recreation Opportunity Analysis – Southern Gateways Region


You are receiving this message because the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) believes that you have an interest in outdoor recreation in Dane, Dodge, Columbia, Green, Iowa, Jefferson, Lafayette, Richland, Rock, and/or Sauk counties, which compose the Southern Gateways Region.


The Department of Natural Resources is underway on a study, known as the Recreation Opportunities Analysis, looking at existing outdoor-based recreation opportunities and future recreation needs in each region of the state. The study will identify future opportunities for providing high-quality recreation experiences and the potential role of department properties in helping to meet those needs. More details can be found on the ROA web page.


Over the last few months, the department has been working with statewide recreation stakeholder representatives to consider recreation goals and activity attributes. The department also sought their input on how local stakeholders and the public can best be heard. Our next step is to gather feedback from local stakeholders and the general public regarding outdoor recreation opportunities. This past year, the department began its public input gathering effort in the most northern areas of Wisconsin. The final regions from which we are seeking public input are the Southern Gateways and Lower Lake Michigan Coastal Regions.


The department is gathering public input through an on-line questionnaire found on our web page. The department will also be hosting public open house informational meetings to gather input on the Recreation Opportunities Analysis. The meetings will be held between 4PM and 7PM. If you are interested in attending, please save the date for meetings in the following locations:

·         Tuesday, December 5 – Baraboo Civic Center, 124 2nd Street, Baraboo, WI 53913

·         Wednesday, December 6 – Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center, N7725 Highway 28, Horicon, WI 53032

·         Tuesday, December 12 – Urban Ecology Center (Menomonee Valley branch), 3700 W. Pierce Street, Milwaukee, WI 53215

·         Wednesday, December 13 – Wyndham Garden Hotel, 2969 Cahill Main, Fitchburg, WI 53711
