Public comment sought on Community Pond proposal in Culbertson
June 12, 2019
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking public comment on a proposal to construct a Community Pond on the outskirts of Culbertson. Fish, Wildlife and Parks (Community Pond Program), the Culbertson Lions Club and the City of Culbertson propose to construct a pond by excavating a pit and earthen berms. This proposal also includes road and parking lot construction.
The goal of the project is to provide a safe, convenient public fishing pond close to the City of Culbertson. The pond is designed to be 1.5 surface acres and construction will be done by the US National Guard.
The FWP Community Pond Program funding is derived from the sale of fishing licenses, and authority for the CPP is provided by the Montana State Legislature.
The Environmental Assessment summarizes the proposed action and analyzes the potential risks and is open for public comment through July 5th, 2019. The EA is available at the Glasgow FWP office or available at the direct link below: http://fwp.mt.gov/news/publicNotices/environmentalAssessments/restorationAndRehab/pn_0166.html
Interested parties can comment directly on the FWP webpage, mail comments to Dave Fuller, MT Fish, Wildlife and Parks, 1 Airport Rd, Glasgow, MT 59230, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (406) 228-3700. Thank you for your interest in this project.
