Park Hits the Halfway Mark!

A closing for the next land acquisition at the Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park took place on December 17, 2013.  The purchase included approximately 140 land and water acres lying along the south and west side of the planned park – including a large portion of Bertram Lake.  After months of work on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) pertaining to the development of the YMCA’s Camp Manitou at the park, the purchase is ready to move forward! The Wright County Board of Commissioners and the Monticello City Council, at their respective meetings, both approved the Fourth Addendum to the MOU and its exhibits on November 12, 2013, paving the way for the closing. 

This acquisition will put the Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park at almost 640 acres, or over half of the total planned park area of 1,200 acres!
