Demand an Environmental Review for the proposed Tepetonka Golf Course
Add your name to the petition!
Developers are currently considering building a 200+ acre private golf course on agricultural land in Northern Kandiyohi County. The golf course would be located on the banks of Shakopee Creek in restored prairie right across the road from Sibley State Park. Shakopee Creek is a tributary of the Chippewa River which is a tributary of the Minnesota River, one of the most polluted rivers in the country. Golf Courses are documented as high users of the pesticides and fertilizers largely impacting the Minnesota River. Millions of private and public investments and countless hours have gone into improving water quality in the Minnesota River Basin. The Tepetonka Golf Course risks reversing that progress.
The residents of Kandiyohi County and residents of communities downstream in the Minnesota River Basin deserve to have a voice in developments that will impact their communities and local ecosystems.
The Kandiyohi County Commission must assure a full environmental review and public decision-making process to allow local communities to have a voice.
By signing this petition, you are asking the Kandiyohi County Commission to complete a full Environmental Assessment Worksheet for the Tepetonka Golf Course project before considering the approval of a Conditional Use Permit.
