The city of Superior was awarded a large statewide grant for shoreline and recreational improvements on Wisconsin Point.

According to The Duluth News Tribune the city of Superior received $1.375 million for the restoration of dunes and $24,664 to fund a comprehensive outdoor recreational plan. The funding comes from Coastal Management Program Grants.

Linda Cadotte, Superior’s Parks Recreation and Forestry director stated that planning and public input has been going on for years to establish these grants, but before anything can begin this Fall, representatives from area tribes must be consulted.

She went on to say that Wisconsin Point is considered a burial ground an area of extreme cultural sensitivity, and so any improvements require federal and tribal review. Matt Steiger from the Wisconsin DNR went on to say that Wisconsin Point is a very “unique habitat for fish and wildlife.” This plan is not just about moving a bunch of sand around, but  to find a way to balance natural and recreational interests.
