DNR reconsiders future of Badger Army Ammunition Plant


MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A dozen years ago plans for the abandoned Badger Army Ammunition Plant included using the land for conservation, education and agriculture, plus low-impact recreational activities like hiking and bird watching.

Now, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says it has to weigh whether conditions have changed and the use of the land should change with them.

Petitions have been presented to the state agency bearing the signatures of hundreds of people opposed to changing the first approach. The DNR is going to offer three alternatives this summer, then hold open houses to see what the public wants.

The ATV Association is already asking the state to set aside 500 acres with 20 miles of trails for enthusiasts.
