The Town of Carey will sponsor a project which has been proposed jointly by the towns of Carey and Pence.

This phase of the project will result in (all items listed on page 9 of the approved proposal):
1. An environmental inventory of the Gile Flowage and its watershed based on a review and search of existing data and will recommend areas where additional data is needed.
2. A report indicating shoreland protection issues and potential areas for restoration.
3. Base planning maps of the Gile Flowage
4. A review and assessment of existing land use regulations and management plans.
5. A survey of land owners and report with the findings of the survey.
6. A written lake history.
7. A plan for sharing results of the project.
8. A lake organization for the Flowage.
9. A Phase I - preliminary plan for the watershed of the Gile Flowage as part of larger smart growth planning efforts.
10.A steering committee of stakeholders meeting regularly.
(Future phases will allow more detailed data collection on the Gile Flowage.) This phase is to look at what is available, develop a framework and begin the process of bringing diverse stakeholders together.
