The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced it is revising a variance to the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Regional Master Plan and will open a second public comment period. The revised variance, will address requests for additional and clarifying information regarding a variance to add additional parking and reroute or reconfigure access roads to expand capacity, improve public safety, expand accessibility and alleviate congestion at Eagle Tower, Eagle Terrace and Eagle Panorama.
The Wisconsin DNR has received a high volume of comments on the variance.
The current public comment period opened on Jan. 24 and closed Feb. 8, but did not include specifics or site plans showing the areas that would be impacted by changes. The department will develop a revised variance to address comments and requests received during the initial comment period.
The DNR issued a press release to say that an updated variance will be issued with a second public comment period as soon as is feasible.
The public can review the current draft variances by visiting the DNR’s Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Regional Master Plan webpage.
