Upper Sioux Agency State Park

Giveaway of Upper Sioux Agency State Park approaches reality

Legislation that would give a state park in southern Minnesota to a local Dakota Indian band and prompt the DNR to find replacement recreational land is now part of a massive environmental bill recently passed by the House.
The legislation is yet to be considered by the Senate. The House omnibus environment bill also contains $5 million for land-replacement purchase and other expenditures.

Public meeting in Granite Falls debates land transfer of Upper Sioux Agency State Park to band

Citizens  crammed into a cafeteria in Granite Falls Wednesday night, April 5, in order to learn more about a proposal to transfer ownership of the Upper Sioux Agency State Park lands to the Upper Sioux Community. While a panel of speakers took questions and comments for more than two hours, they said many details about the proposed transfer remain to be worked out.
Members of the public at the meeting spoke out both in support of the land transfer, and questioning it. Some audience members also criticized what they said was a lack of communication about the land transfer proposal.
