Another foreclosed development could become Hubbard County's latest Aquatic Management Area after county commissioners approved the DNR moving forward with its purchase.


The 29 acres on Spider and Crow Wing Lakes in a defunct development now owned by Citizen's National Bank in Park Rapids would theoretically be purchased with Legacy funds and converted to public lands with access for shore fishing once an appraisal is completed.
