"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
-Margaret Mead


If the City of St. Peter's treatment of Lake Hallett continues the Community of St. Peter is on the verge of losing a Valuable Community Asset:
  1. Your City Council has decided this lake better serves the community as a place to dump polluted urban storm water than as a recreational resource for the community.

Heavy stormwater flow into Lake Hallett
This picture taken February 13th 2005 clearly shows polluted storm water pouring into Lake Hallett.


  1. Your City Council did not purchase property for a park in this area. The property purchased by the City was to allow for the addition of more polluted storm water into Lake Hallett and to build the WasteWater Treatment Plant.
  2. Although there has been talk of purchasing additional property in the Lake Hallett area for decades, an option has now been signed to sell all the remaining property to a large development company.
  3. The only City-owned property is the 30-foot wide buffer zone along part of the shoreline. This is slated for a 1/2-mile long 8 to 12-foot wide gravel road for walking, biking and City vehicles. This leaves little room for trees, a beach, picnic areas, playground equipment, parking or restrooms. This also violates Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Minnesota State Shoreland Management Standards.
  4. There is no drive in public access or any plans for one. This means no public boat access. Without this public access the Department of Natural Resources will not stock the lake or put in a handicapped accessible dock. The only public access will be the parking lot of the WasteWater Treatment Plant.
