WAUKESHA COUNTY LAND CONSERVANCY: ACQ-Wilson Parcel - Lily Lake

Purpose

The Waukesha Land Conservancy wishes to purchase 60 acres of land in the SW corner of Waukesha County. Two lakes (Henrietta and Waterville) lie within 750 feet of the property and the parcel contains a 3.2 acre lake, named Lily Lake. The property is also adjacent to Scuppernong Creek. The parcel contains deep marsh, a bog and sedge meadow and is listed as Class 1 Wildlife Habitat. The Waukesha Land Conservancy will provide an area for canoe access and parking. The parcel is listed as a NA-2 by SEWRPC. The landowner is donating $55,000 of value and accepting an offer less than the certified value. AMENDMENT: The Waukesha Land Conservancy will purchase a total of 60.68 acres, and the project also includes a 40 foot-wide easement and 35 foot-wide building setback extending around the edge of the property acquired and the eastern edge of the wetland complex for the purpose of protecting the wetland and the lake (see project file for legal description).
