MNRF & Gravel Mine news

(1/1)

groomporter:
There's a new draft of an environmental impact statement from Scott County regarding resuming gravel mining around the current MNRF site. The plan includes options which could allow for the festival to remain where it is for now -assuming they can get the lease extended again. But it would gradually eat away at the remaining original parking lot, the Queen's Gate lot and likely the participant's campground which doesn't seem like a viable plan for MNRF.

The craft coordinator announced in her New Years greeting to crafters:

We are pleased to mention that the lease at our current location was recently extended through 2022.

No new update yet to the mining proposal in the first post.
