Oak Creek seeks public input for lakefront development plan
The City of Oak Creek is beginning to create a redevelopment plan for its lakefront, and is seeking public input at two events scheduled for Thursday.
The purpose of the events is to gather input on what community members want to see on the lakefront
before the project team actually begins to prepare site concepts. The project team will come back to the public with specific planning ideas in later meetings.
Thursday's events will be at the Oak Creek Community Center, 8580 S. Howell Avenue.
From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., members of the lakefront development team will be available to provide information regarding the city’s recent redevelopment efforts. This will be an open house, where members of the public can drop in at any time to talk one-on-one with staff.
At 7 p.m. there will be a short presentation by the city’s team, followed by small group input sessions where participants will be invited to share their visions of the lakefront.
You can learn more about Oak Creek's lakefront redevelopment project at the city’s website.
