Public Involvement

Public Informational Meeting - April 6, 2016

A public information meeting was held on Wednesday April 6, 2015 from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Waukesha West High School Cafeteria, 3301 Saylesville Road, to update the public on project developments since the approval of the project's Final EIS and Record of Decision in late 2014. Representatives from the City of Waukesha, Waukesha County and WisDOT presented construction plans and other exhibits for their separate projects and responded to questions. In addition, Waukesha County provided information on the refined design of the Pebble Creek West Alternative that avoids the wetland fen immediately south of Sunset Drive and reduces the project's overall wetland impact. The meeting was an open house, with a presentation on the design refinement. A question-and-answer session on the Final EIS reevaluation followed the presentation.
