This blog represents my opinions and my opinions alone, and certainly doesn't represent the collective thoughts of any of the Boards or organizations that I serve on. Unfortunately I make all sorts of miistakes, I'm a picky eater, I can't sing and I just recently found out I have been spelling certain words in my vocabulary wrong my entire life. That being said, I still continue to muddle ever onward. Welcome.

Monona Park And Recreation Board Meets Tonight.

The Park and Rec Board will meet this evening at 6 pm in the Monona Community Center.

New business consists of:

A. 2013 Parks, Community Center, Pool Capital Plan Ranking
B. Recommendation/Award of contract for Maywood Park Pedestrian Path project
C. Review/Discussion of Public Input meeting for Parks & Open Space Plan
D. Capital Transfer Request/Recommendation of $136,000 for Firemen’s Park Shelter bathroom construction project

Monday evening was the last of two scheduled open houses for community members to check out Director Jake Anderson's proposed Parks and Open Space Plan. He did a nice job of setting up various displays of proposed changes, particularly in Winnequah Park, and solicited community input through the tried-and-true Post-It note approach. I stopped in last night at the Community Center to check things out and found a lot of good comments had been left. Stop in tonight at our meeting to offer any additional comments you may have!

The Park and Open Space Plan can be found here.

  1. Wanted to add that the details of the Parks and Open Space Plan are still in draft stage; I've heard some comments and concerns about this plan is a done deal, but it's not. Please feel free to continue the discussion! Jake Anderson hopes to make the display boards available for viewing in City Hall soon.
