Otter Tail County, in collaboration with the White Earth Nation, is working with SRF Consulting Group to complete a Limited Area Star Lake Comprehensive Plan. The purpose is to better understand and plan for potential changes in transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, housing, and more. An outcome will be the identification of the concerns of Star Lake and Dead Lake Township residents and property owners relative to the White Earth Nation’s plans for a resort and casino development in Star Lake Township. It is understood that not all concerns identified will relate to the proposed resort and casino development. Adjacent land in the surrounding area will also be reviewed to understand how it may change over time, affecting the adjacent transportation infrastructure as well.
