Letter to the Editor

Attention Okoboji Residents,

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

After trying to trying to contain the growth and congestion of our city, we have an investor and developer trying to back-door us. The plan entails an area north of Chalstrom Beach Plantations stretching to Parks Marina.

The area is approximately 65 acres and will incorporate anywhere from 425-525 homes when completed. The designs of this development are tailored after Bridges Bay across the lake: weekend rentals, small homes, and inconsiderate of water runoff, environmental effects and traffic during our summer season.

The Planning and Zoning Commission meeting is at 1 p.m. Dec. 18. The County Board of Supervisors meeting is at 9:45 a.m. Dec. 19.

We need to stop this overbuilding before it happens!

Your time and consideration is most appreciated.

Gary and Karen Lippe
