DNR to reopen comment period for Eagle Tower parking variance

You still have a day to comment on the two variances being floated for Peninsula State Park, but one of those will actually need your feedback again. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday that it is revising its variance request to add more parking and reconfigure roads around Eagle Tower, which has become even more popular since it was rebuilt to be more accessible a few years ago. The revised variance will address requests for additional and clarifying information regarding the potential areas of impact for the changes near the tower, which was not included in the original. Earlier this week, Planner Yoyi Steele said there would be lots of planning and studies before shovels hit the dirt to ensure it is economically and sustainably feasible after the variance was approved.

While the current comment period will still close on February 8th, a new one will be scheduled once additional information is available.
