Kohler Co. has announced it has made important modifications on its proposed golf course design in the Town of Wilson so that it sharply reduces impacts to wetlands, significantly decreases the amount of property needed for an easement on state land, and does not impact state property west of the Black River.
Jim Richerson, Group Director of Golf for Kohler Co.’s Hospitality and Real Estate Group, said the revised plan will have a minimalist design that will allow the land to breathe and protect more wetlands. The modifications also limit the easement to state land now used for maintenance operations and not routinely accessed by the public.
“Over the past several months, our plans have evolved based on community feedback and our due diligence and field work. We made a concerted effort to avoid, minimize or mitigate the potential environmental impact,” Richerson added. “This balanced approach sharply reduces encroachment on wetlands acreage, significantly cuts the use of state parkland and removes invasive species.”
