Today, April 22, 2017 we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of our first Town of Dunn deal!
The Town of Dunn purchased its first property for the PDR program on April 22, 1997 from the Sinaiko Family. It was the first Purchase of Development Rights transaction in the state of Wisconsin, as this plaque on the property now explains. The property held a former Native American campsite, and a portion of the property is now a Town Park.
Sinaiko Conservation Easement, covering 163.2 acres, ultimately held by DCNHF and Town of Dunn, covering parcels now owned by Uphoff, Hagen, Christenson, and Town of Dunn (park). This became the first Town of Dunn Purchase of Development Rights. The conservation easement was split into four parcels: farms fields, a town park, and two wooded tracts (allowing one house each).
Save the Date! Join us to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of our partnership with the Town of Dunn on Saturday, September 16 from noon – 3 pm.
