We wanted to catch up on the other items that were discussed at the Nov. 14 Parks and Recreation Board meeting at as promised.
Here's a recap:
The board approved a request by Muskego Icetronauts to establish a snowmobile trail using Lake Access #17 and throughrequesting they place the trail following the fence and tree line, straight through the prairie area, taking into consideration the access to the Haut property.
An entrance to Park Arthur on the College Avenue side as well as on Martin Drive was discussed, with the matter held until more information from Waukesha County could be obtained. Initially, residents who lived on Lentini were concerned over traffic from people wishing to 'cut over' from the park to College and the second entry was felt to eliminate that concern. The county has requirements for how an entrance onto College should be constructed and staff will consult with the county first before a decision is made.
The Winter/Spring Program Guide was be mailed out Nov. 18 with registration starting November 22.
Pickle ball interest netted only five people from the last program guide; therefore the department will not move forward with restriping the tennis courts. However the department does have a net should more interest be shown.
A request from the Jr. Warriors was made to the parks department for a football field, and parks director Craig Anderson recommended that they should start discussions with the school district for use of the Kelsey land.
