Emmet County Conservation board purchases land for park on Tuttle lake The purchase of a 13-acre tract on Tuttle take to be used as a multiple use recreation area, was approved last week by the Iowa State Conservation commission. Purchasing the lakeside area is the Emmet County Conservation board, which will develop the area for camping, swimming, boating, (picnicking and other outdoor recreational uses for the public. In the first mador project by the County Conservation board since its approval by county voters in Nov. of 1964, the transaction involves a lease- purchase agreement from Virgil Moore, who has owned the property for some years. The ultimate purchase price will be $11,500. The purchase will be from tax funds wihich the County board can cause to be levied up to a full mill on property in the county. With the cost of the acquisition, spread over a two-year period, and development spread over a five- year period, the tax levy is not expected to exceed a half- mill, it was explained. The half-mile of lakeshore, which will be developed under the name of Tuttle Lake County Park or Recreational area, is an untouched beauty spot, with a lot of hardwood trees, and is all in grasslands at present. Tentative (plans by the Conservation board call for one, and maybe two, access roads and service roads within the area to picnic and camping areas. Plans also call for a, well, toilet facilities, a boat ramp, swimming area and tree plantings. All of the area will be immediately available for restricted use by the public and as it is developed the use will be expanded, it was said.
