Lake Vermilion State Park.
If you have followed Lake Vermilion news in recent history you may know that US Steel has proposed a large lakeshore development on the east end of the lake called Three Bays. The Governor’s announcement tells us the State of Minnesota is very interested in purchasing that tract for use as a future state park.
(This a an appropriate time to give anyone close to you an enthusiastic high five and a shout of “That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout”.)
Lake Vermilion wins with this news as there is a strong element of stewardship in the announcement.
Update: Here’s an estimate on the dollars involved.
