Door County park gets bigger

The Door Bluff County Park Headlands Natural Area grew by about 73-acres earlier this year.  Now the Parks Department is getting close to paying off a $450,000 short-term loan from the county's general fund.  The Wisconsin Coastal Management Program this week will present Door County with a check of just over $104,000 to go toward that loan.  The county bought the property from the Hidding Family Trust, which Parks Superintendent Ben Nelson says had owned the property for decades and left it in its natural state.

 

 

Nelson says the timing of the Hidding Acquisition was important as Door County prepares to draw up it's Parks Master Plan.

 

 

With the grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management plan in hand, the remaining portion of the short-term loan is expected to be paid off when a grant from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund is received by year's end.
