Parks, Open Space and Trails - Plan Update

Over the next several months, the Parks and Recreation Commission will conduct a process to review and update the City’s “2035 Park and Open Space Plan” as prepared by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, which was last updated/adopted in 2011 (see below).

Public involvement will be incorporated into the process to assure that the resulting plans meet the needs and expectations of the community.  The planning process, meetings calendar, and opportunities for involvement and providing input/feedback will be publicized and promoted through the City’s website ( and future issues of the newsletter.  The plan updates and corresponding public process will play a critically important role in guiding the growth, development, redevelopment, and preservation of the City’s parks, trails, and open spaces for the next 20 to 25 years.
