Similar to the 'Adopt-a-Park' and 'Adopt-a-Trail' program, the Parks and Recreation Department is thinking of rolling out 'Adopt-a-Lake-Access' program to help improve the nearly two dozen points around the lake that allow the public to access Little Muskego Lake.
"There are probably about a half dozen that really need improvements and we would develop a priority list for these," said Parks Director Craig Anderson during the Parks Board meeting on Monday.
The department would partner with local groups to do light cleanup during the summer, but would limit the work to land-only tasks. That means no pier installation or removal.
In addition, the department would provide basic supplies like garbage bags, and would post recognition for the groups participating through signage at the access parcel. Anderson said the recent concerns over the conditions at lake access parcel 12, where residents felt the swimming area was overshadowed by overgrowth and a failing stairway.
With the approval of the Parks Board, Anderson will formalize the policy to present at the board's December meeting.
