DC facilities committee pursuing rezone to conservancy for proposed Town of Colfax park

By LeAnn R. Ralph

MENOMONIE —  The Dunn County Board’s facilities committee has approved moving forward with a rezone to a conservancy district for a proposed 146-acre park in the Town of Colfax.

Dunn County should consider rezoning the parcel to a conservancy district so the land is protected in the future, said Bob Colson, Dunn County planner and zoning administrator, at a March 7 meeting of the facilities committee.

A rezone to a conservancy district would be a “second wall” to protect the county’s intent to conserve the land, said John Sworski, Dunn County director of public works.
