CAMPBELLSPORT BUILDING SUPPLY AND FOND DU LAC COUNTY PROVIDE FUNDING FOR CAMPBELLSPORT INFORMATION CENTER ON THE EISENBAHN TRAIL
Campbellsport WI, October 2, 2008— Wisconsin bicyclists, runners, walkers, snowmobilers, ATV users, and more now have an easy way to access information about Campbellsport when traveling on the Eisenbahn trail, thanks to funding from Fond du Lac County and Campbellsport Building Supply (CBS).
“Creating green places for recreation and exercise requires the support of not only government funding, and local organizations, but also committed business citizens, like CBS,” says Todd Flitter, store leader at CBS. “The long-term benefits of this are positive for this community.”
The information center will be maintained by the information and tourism branch of the Campbellsport Area Chamber of Commerce (CACC). Currently, there is some information about the history of Campbellsport, as well as a city map highlighting businesses and points of interest. Others things will be added as needed. To add information please contact the CACC thru their website www.campbellsport.org.
The information center itself is unique because it is built “green” friendly. The normal treated wood material used in this design was upgraded to TREX Brasilia composite decking. It is similar to appearance of an exotic tropical hardwood. TREX Brasilia has the rich beauty of the rainforests, but leaves behind all of the headaches of wood. Unlike rainforest timbers, there’s no oiling, staining or pre-drilling required. Composed primarily of recycled wood and plastic material, TREX helps the environment from the manufacturing process thru the life of the product.
Even the roof is very “green” compared to most buildings. StormMaster high wind and impact resistant designer shingles were used in the project and excel in protecting this structure from the most extreme weather conditions. SBS (styrene butadiene styrene) is blended into the asphalt shingle formula to enhance the flexibility, strength, and durability of StormMaster, creating a shingle that resists cracking, splitting, warping or shrinking in hot or cold weather. The StormMaster shingles are designed to withstand high impact as well as high wind velocities. StormMaster LM is a laminated architectural shingle which comes with an unprecedented 50 year limited warranty.
Flitter, says, “We have been very fortunate to work with the Fond du Lac County the Village of Campbellsport and especially the CACC on this endeavor. This joint effort by all of those involved is a true testament to how the public and private sectors can work together to provide greater benefits to our community.”
