City of Plymouth Online Cemetery Application

Bay-Lake RPC recently teamed up with the City of Plymouth to create an interactive online cemetery application for Woodlawn and Union Cemeteries within the City.
The application provides search 
capabilities and details regarding all of the grave sites within the two cemeteries. Members of the public can also identify grave sites that are available for purchase. To view the City of Plymouth's Online Cemetery Application click here.

Lower East River Revitalization Plan
Bay-Lake RPC began working with The Nature Conservancy to create a local technical advisory group. The group met early in June to discuss the development of a revitalization plan for the lower East River corridor in Brown County.

The plan will include a prioritized implementation strategy for restoration activities along the floodplain/shoreland corridor of the East River in the Lower Fox River Basin. It will also detail and rank habitat and water quality focused projects, and potential land protection opportunities for public and natural resource benefits that are designed to improve the fish and wildlife habitats and public enjoyment of the river.
Stay tuned for an announcement of the public informational meeting and survey to gather public input! If you have questions about this project or are interested in receiving more information, please contact Madison Smith.

Ahnapee River & Olson Park Open House
Over the last year, the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission has worked with the Ahnapee River Water Trail Steering Committee and a local stakeholder group to establish the water trail plan for the Ahnapee River and a concept plan for Olson Park. On the evening of June 17th, the final open house was held to present the work completed so far. Thank you to everyone who came out and made the night a success.

We look forward to assisting the  City of Algoma with their implementation goals. 

For future updates on this project please contact Madison Smith.
