Wausaukee Adds Projects To County Parks, Recreation Plan

Issue Date: February 28, 2018

The Village of Wausaukee's Buildings, Parks and Grounds Committee meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 6 included discussion of projects they would like to plan for future development of Village Parks, along with discussion on how the projects could be funded.In formal action the committee recommended several additions to the Village of Wausaukee section of Marinette County's new Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, and also recommended that the Village Board adopt the plan.

The Marinette County Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan is devoted to identifying and providing aesthetic and functional parks and recreational facilities for Marinette County residents and visitors. As part of their planning efforts, county planners had reached out to all the municipalities in 2017 and queried about future plans for their respective recreation facilities.

The Village of Wausaukee's response, currently included in the plan, states that the village "would like to see the impoundment of the Wausaukee River dredged out and the former beach reconstructed at this spot."

Subsequently Trista Hobbs of U.P. Engineers reached out to the Village and explained that adding additional future improvement plans for village recreational facilities to the County's Comprehensive Plan would eliminate the need for the village to develop its own plan in order to qualify for state funding. This action alone would save the village nearly $10,000, Hobbs said. The Village would need to formally adopt the County's plan by resolution at a Board meeting.

On the basis of this information the committee considered several potential improvements to all village parks for inclusion in the plan and recommended that the full Village Board adopt the plan along with their proposed wish list of projects.

The added potential projects include: Evergreen Park and Campground " ADA accessible shower/restrooms facilities " Extending water lines to all campsites " Pavilion expansion to include kitchen facilities and warming shelter " ADA accessible parking for campground and park facilities " Improvements to existing basketball, volleyball and tennis courts " Upgrades and expansion to walking/hiking trails " Upgrades to park facilities to incorporate outdoor, winter activities " Incorporate educational and environmental elements into the park " Fishing platforms - All Parks " Steve Stumbris Sr. Memorial Park, Payant Park, Evergreen Park " Upgrade security systems " ADA accessibility upgrades " Upgrade playground equipment.

The committee was told that the county will be making corrections to its plan, so there is a small window of opportunity to get the village's newly identified projects included in the final draft. Wausaukee Village Clerk Sarah Pullen will contact Pete Villas, Marinette County Forestry and Parks Administrator, to make sure the amendments are included in the final revision. Villas headed the team that put the overall Marinette County plan together.

After being brought up to speed at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 21, the Village Board approved motions to move forward by listing the park improvements mentioned in the committee minutes of Feb. 6, seek ways to secure funding, and accept a grant application assistance proposal from U.P Engineers.
