GRINDSTONE LAKE ASSOCIATION: Building Citizen-Agency Capacity for Lake Management


Activities: The Grindstone Lake Association is sponsoring a small-scale lake planning grant for organizational development which will focus on identifying roles and responsibilities for specific lake management topics and developing a framework for coordination among citizens and agencies to direct lake management.

This is followed by a gap analysis of necessary roles and responsibilities. 4) Develop a \201Croad map\201D of collaborative citizen-agency strategies to protect and/or restore lake health including a timetable and schedule. Project deliverables include: 1) A citizen-agency engagement workshop; 2) Video of presentations on the various aspects of Grindstone Lake; 3) A matrix of roles, responsibilities, and resources for each critical lake issue (including a gap analysis); 4) A timetable and schedule of citizen-agency collaborations on critical lake management needs for 2020-2022. 5) Results/report will be presented to the lake association and at the Wisconsin Lakes Convention.
