Potawatomi Tower Concept Report

Potawatomi Tower

In early January 2023, the engineering firm GRAEF completed a concept report and cost analysis for the Observation Tower at Potawatomi State Park. The report identifies concept plan options for (1) the restoration of the existing tower at the park and (2) the replacement of the existing tower with a new tower. The DNR will use the report and public feedback to formulate a recommendation for moving forward.
