Special Open Meeting - PIKE LAKE AAA GOLF COURSE / RECREATION AREA

The attorney the Pike Lake Assoc. contracted has told us that AAA is well within their legal rights to sell the golf course, recreation area.  The next meeting where this will be discussed is at the Canosia Town Bd. meeting on Wed. the 5th.  This is an open meeting and representatives from the Pike Lake Assoc. will be there.  It is our understanding the town board also has the goal of maintaining the operation of the facility. 

The question is how to maintain this community asset. If you have ideas or suggestions please let a PLA board member know.  The moreconcerned community members involved in this discussion the more likely we are able to influence the directions taken.

Larry Modean, President of the Pike Lake Association (March 29, 2017)

Includes an Italian buffet with salad, dessert and coffee


RSVP to Dianne Ahlers: 729-7300


Joe Russell, NR Spec SR Trails & Waterways, DNR Two Harbors Office, will describe plans to improve the Pike Lake public landing area (Carmen’s Way). DNR projects of this nature must address storm water management, disability access and developing a safe place for boats to pull plugs and check for invasive species. The planned project will maintain a good driving lane, add designated spots for boat inspections, find a good balance between trailer parking and single car spots (for kayakers, swimmers at the public portion of the beach, etc.), add a dock, and upgrade the striping and compliance signs throughout while maintaining handicap access and avoiding the PLAWCS lift station at the site. Funding for public access projects comes from boat/trailer registrations and gas tax money.


Mr. Russell will be our guest at the annual Pike Lake Association banquet where he will elaborate on these plans and provide an update of current progress at the landing.
