State parks in Door County, higher education, and the entire state economy will benefit from Governor Evers' proposed $2.38-billion capital improvement budget. Evers says all that's needed is for GOP lawmakers on the State Building Commission to reconsider their rejection of the plan. That means park improvements for the Department of Natural Resources and building projects for the UW system face an uncertain future. During a visit to UW-Green Bay, the governor asked for public support for his proposals which benefit local economies.
Among the Door County projects proposed; include:
- $1,441,990 to repair and restore the Historic Boat House exterior at Rock Island State Park.
- $2,532,500 to replace the Public Entrance Visitor Station at Potawatomi State Park.
- $2,091,400 GFSB to renovate the Welcker’s Campground toilet/shower buildings at Peninsula State Park.
