Ida County Conservation Board discusses several improvements

The Ida County Conservation Board reviewed long-range goals and discussed the new conservation center Monday, Feb. 4.

Board members reviewed and discussed their tallied sheet of priorities for long-range goals from the previous meeting.

The top three goals in order for Moorehead Park are eliminate vault toilets and replace with one flush toilet, possibly south of the playground; add shoreline stabilization to the river east of the shop and add a boat ramp onto the Maple River.

The top three goals for Crawford Creek Recreational Area (CCRA) in order are add water hookups to the top camping area; upgrade upper camping electrical service to 50 amp and get rid of the 30 year old service connections and air condition the enclosed shelter.

The board noted the priority list does not necessarily assure the improvements will be made soon, but gives the board guidance for future improvements as funds become available.

Board member Don Poggensee reported on a recent meeting with the Ida County Board of Supervisors concerning the new conservation center to be built at Moorehead Park.

The supervisors expressed concern with taking on the ongoing expenses of the center. They want the Conservation Foundation to maintain ownership of the building, thus paying the ongoing expenses and receiving the income from the building.

The conservation board assured the supervisors that rental fees and fund-raisers would cover ongoing costs.
