The Muskego Common Council has scheduled an informational meeting during which public input will be welcomed on the latest proposal for a park on the shores of Little Muskego Lake.
The meeting, set for 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 12 at the City Hall, S8200 Racine Ave., will be conducted in an open house format. Exhibits will explain the proposal and staff to answer questions, and public input forms will be available to fill out.
In announcing the meeting, the council on Tuesday decided to go with the open house format in recognition that some people might feel uncomfortable speaking in front of a large gathering. Others don't have the time to sit through a meeting involving a large numbers of speakers. With the open house format they can get information, give their input and leave.
Those who cannot attend the meeting can submit written input at least a week after the information meeting, Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti said.
The park proposal involves the city buying and razing two Little Muskego Lake homes along Janesville Road. The heirs of the woman who owned the homes and died in August 2012 have offered the city the first chance to buy them. One of the houses was part of a larger lake park proposal in 2010 that ultimately was rejected.
