MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Department of Natural Resources is set to take public comment on a draft plan to add hundreds of acres to High Cliff State Park.
The park consists of 1,195 acres about 10 miles east of Appleton. It offers a panoramic view of Lake Winnebago and the surrounding countryside. Nearly 417,000 people visit the park annually, making it the state's fifth busiest park.
The DNR has been developing a new master plan for the property that calls for adding nearly 2,000 acres through land purchases over the next 10 to 15 years. Agency officials estimate the project will cost a total of about $11.3 million.
The agency will hold a public meeting on the draft master plan in Sherwood on May 7 and take public comments until May 10.
