Tue 11-7-2017

            (Spirit Lake)-- The Dickinson county board of supervisors this (Tues.) morning set November 28th as the date for a public hearing on a proposal to sell some county-owned land near a gravel pit in the Lake Park area. A group wants to build a trap, skeet and archery range on the 28.6 acres of land.

The supervisors voted to set a date for the public hearing after getting answers from Assistant County Attorney Lonnie Saunders regarding some legal procedures for selling the land, which is currently under lease.

Supervisor Paul Johnson told the board he's been hearing a lot of support about the proposed project...Land Sale Hearing Set 

"I have yet to find anyone that says don't do it. It's just the opposite. So many people in Lake Park are excited about this, and the kids in the area, from their parents, are also excited. In think this is a great move and I have to commend Rick Kalsow and his group for pulling this together."

County officials say the land will be able to retain it's current agricultural zoning designation with the proposed trap, skeet and archery range.
