ONEIDA COUNTY PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT SEEKS
FEEDBACK ON AMENDMENTS TO THE ONEIDA COUNTY
ZONING AND SHORELAND PROTECTION ORDINANCE.

The Oneida County Planning and Development Committee is conducting a survey to assess public opinion on boathouses and piers.  The survey will be conducted from July 14, 2014 through August 15, 2014.  The survey is web based and can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NDT9S6S or by going to the Oneida County website at http://www.co.oneida.wi.gov and clicking on Announcements.

Oneida County currently allows boathouses with specific restrictions on the shore of a lake.  Oneida County and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources regulates the placement of piers on lakes, rivers and streams.  The survey will be asking specific questions on both topics.  The Committee wants to hear your opinions to assist them in formatting possible changes to the Oneida County Zoning and Shoreland Protection Ordinance.

New AIS Monitoring Event

Good afternoon everyone!

The River Alliance of WI is hosting a Statewide AIS Bridge Snapshot day on Saturday, September 13, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  This Snapshot day will be geared towards monitoring of AIS near bridge crossings.  Oneida County has over 1100 lakes, but also harbors miles and miles of rivers, creeks, channels, and thoroughfares.  I am hoping that we can add Oneida County to the list of participating counties! 

To do so, I need some idea of interested lake associations, individuals, civic groups, and teachers/students.  This is a ONE day event, and all training will be provided by your Oneida County AIS Team.

Please respond to this email if you think you might be interested in participating in this unique event.  Also, please list the bridge crossing that you might be interested in monitoring. 

Thanks!

OUSTING ALGAE: Spring cleaning begins on Bald Eagle Lake - KMSP-TV

OUSTING ALGAE: Spring cleaning begins on Bald Eagle Lake - KMSP-TV

This is an interesting video and deals with Algae Bloom. The Limnologist, Matt Kocian, just happens to be the son of  friends of ours and is a good source of information. Take a look and see how they deal with the problem and what the costs are.

We're Back in Business just in time for Ice Out

Thank you Kari for the photo of the last remaining ice on Lake Thompson as of May 4th. Can you see the block out on the ice? Kari said it fell about a half hour after the photo was taken. So I'm wondering .....who had May 4th as their guess???

The blog has been down as of late but I've managed to figure out the problem and fix it, hopefully it will stay fixed for a good long while!
