WEST WISCONSIN LAND TRUST: ACQ-Herde III, Triple Lakes Easements

Purpose

WWLT is seeking $200,000 in Lake Protection funding to contribute to the cost of two conservation easements: one secured on a 30-acre parcel on Herde Lake, and the other on a 740-acre parcel that includes frontage on, or entirely encompasses, 14 lakes including the Triple Lakes, and Henneman, Logger, Chick, Calkins North and Taylor lakes in Chippewa County. The Herde Lake easement allows no development on the property (which had been subdivided to accommodate 11 condominium lots) and requires maintenance of a 100 ft. forested vegetative shoreline buffer strip to protect the lake's water quality and natural scenic beauty. The Triple Lakes easement extinguishes a condominium plat approval allowing for development of up to 181 lakefront lots allowing, instead, development of 13 residential lots and requiring maintenance of 75' (min.) vegetative buffer strips on all lake shorelines.
