Parks, Open Space and Trails - Plan Update

Over the past several months, the Parks and Recreation Commission has been conducting 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).

To foster public involvement in the process and assure that the resulting plans meet the needs and expectations of the community, the Commission is encouraging residents to attend either of the two public informational forums scheduled for Wednesday, September 19th or Tuesday, September 25th in the Common Council Chambers in Brookfield City Hall, 2000 N. Calhoun Road.

The meetings will be held in an open house format and interested parties are welcome to attend anytime between the hours of 5:00-7:00 p.m. Updated plans and other exhibits will be on display and there will be an opportunity to ask questions, exchange information and offer suggestions with the consultants and City Staff.

In addition, the Parks and Recreation Commission will receive public comment pertaining to the proposed updated plan as part of their regular meeting scheduled on Monday, October 1st at 7:00 p.m. in the Common Council Champers of City Hall.

The updated preliminary plan summary/maps and chapters are included below. The plan update 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.
