ERCLA Supports Wisconsin Shoreland Initiative

The Wisconsin Shoreland Initiative was formed in 2015 to organize a response to the attack on the Eagle River Chain of Lakes and the area rivers by legislative actions taken as part of the state budget process (Act 55).

That one amendment to the budget removed much of the local control of lakes and ended years of informed data driven regulations of riparian properties. It also removed the Vilas County Lake Classification System that was put together to balance property rights with protection of the lakes and rivers in this area.

The Wisconsin Shoreland Initiative is ERCLA’s lobby group. Visit the Wisconsin Shoreland Initiative website for more information on the efforts to regain local government control.
