New Agricultural Enterprise Areas Designated in 20...

Starting January 1, 2021, over 83,000 acres in Dodge, Green Lake, and Outagamie Counties will be eligible to enter into farmland preservation agreements with the designation of three new agricultural enterprise areas (AEAs).

Town of Westford AEA, Dodge County

https://datcp.wi.gov/Documents2/TownofWestfordAEAMap.pdf

This AEA covers 18,203 acres in the town of Westford. This AEA will be Dodge County’s 6th AEA following Ashippun-Oconomowoc AEA, Burnett AEA, Elba-Portland AEA, Shields-Emmet AEA, and Trenton AEA. Goals for this AEA include:

. Promote nutrient management planning to reduce sediment and phosphorus run off as a way to improve local surface water quality.

. Give agricultural landowners the opportunity to participate in the program in a town without a farmland preservation zoning district.

. Grow the relationship between farmer and lakeside landowners to promote conservation and preservation of Beaver Creek and Beaver Dam Lake.

. Allow current farmland preservation agreement holders to continue to participate in the farmland preservation program, encourage new participation in the area.

To participate in the farmland preservation program in Dodge County, contact John Bohonek, County Conservationist, at (920) 386-3660 or [email protected]

Beaver Dam Lake District Established

Dodge County Established Lake District March 2020
Judge De Vries dismissed appeal and confirms Beaver Dam Lake District formation.
Some of the high points of this are:
• Initial Commissioners were appointed to Form Start-Up Structure.
• The Commissioners have completed initial tasks per Wi Statutes 33
• A special Assessment for Start Up and Initial Operations of $45.80 per parcel, will cover start up and operations through December 2021.
• The commissioners are looking forward to the first annual meeting in the summer of 2021
• The Corona virus would have made a meeting with potentially 100 plus people a major health concern in 2020.
• We look forward to the collaboration of the District with other Partners-Stakeholders as we Protect Our Lake Water Quality & Habitat.
