Buckside Hill Park Public Meeting

Buckside Hill Site of Green Lake Park; Public Meeting

I received a phone call from Donna Barnett after I requested minutes from the
“Buckside Hill Site” public meeting. She explained that there were no minutes to be
given out, but she did give me an overview of what took place.
The meeting took place on Friday, July 29th at 5:00 pm at the South Green Lake
Snowmobile Club. There were 35 people in attendance. The meeting was called to get
input from the public about “Buckside Hill Site Park” and also inform people of what the
park was all about. Donna apologized again for the short notice of the meeting and the
mix up with the location that it would be held at.
A few of the topics that were discussed at the meeting were: garbage, boat launching,
parking, signage, trails, fire maintenance and outhouses.
Donna stated that there have never been signs at the site and this will be looked at.
Also she let people know that it is a “Class A park” which has certain restrictions, like
having outhouses and a boat launch. There were discussions about the walking trails
and fire mitigation and what needs to be done. The area is the location of a spawning
channel so barriers may be put in place to stop people from launching boats. There is
also the issue of garbage.
The Government will be taking all of the suggestions and restrictions and putting
together a plan for the park. They will present it to the public this fall sometime and will
be announcing the meeting well in advance of when it will take place.
I will keep everyone updated on the plans for the Fall meeting when I am notified.

Biological Assessment Report of Green Lake 2016

GLARA has received Ken MacKenzie’s Biological Assessment Report of Green Lake. This effort was in two parts, the initial review and part 2 being the field follow up from the part 1 investigation. Part 1 was funded by a grant from the TNRD and GLARA (70% & 30%). Part 2 will follow when we get funding.

The report is informative in that it provides an outline of the OCP area and it appears the area is in generally good health.
