Westshore Preserve Land Acquisition    

Through the efforts of Terry Gant, private citizen, several properties along Little Lake Butte des Morts have been preserved publicly for generations to come.  Mr. Gant coordinated several non-profit groups and municipalities in a joint grant application to the National Resource Damage Assessment Trustees.  The NRDA Trustees is the group designated by the federal government to administer public restoration for a portion of the paper company settlement money.  This settlement money is designated for the purpose of restoring and providing public access to the areas damaged by the PCB’s.  Below is a list of Town properties and who is responsible for the care of these properties.
