For marsh lovers, mountain bikers, bus riders

Two meetings coming up at Fitchburg may interest those who consider Dunn’s Marsh “their marsh” and those who are bikers, mountain variety or other.  Bus riders in the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood may want to attend the DMNA Council meeting on Wed., Sept. 5 where we will hear a presentation about potential bus route changes in the neighborhood.

1. Thursday, August 16, 9 a.m. at the Fitchburg City Hall, 5520 Lacy Road, Floor 2.  Kick-off to Nine Springs Creek Stormwater Master Planning, which is supported by a $134,165 grant to Fitchburg.  One feature of the plan will be a Dunn’s Marsh Stormwater  Management Plan.

2. Thursday, August 23, 7 p.m. at the Fitchburg Community Center, 5510 Lacy Road, in the Fitchburg Room.  This is an informational meeting about the proposed mountain bike park just south of Dunn’s Marsh and between Dawley Park and the Badger State Trail (extension of the Southwest Commuter Path).  The plans for the  bike hub for Dawley Park will also be reviewed.  

3. Wednesday, Sept. 5, 7 p.m. at Prairie UU Society, 2010 Whenona Drive (corner of Crawford and Whenona).  The DMNA Council will discuss the proposal to drop the Crawford loop on Route 19 and hear a presentation on a route to serve the Target area, West and South Transfer hubs, and the Fitchburg town hall.

A map of the proposed mountain bike trails and the press release about that meeting are attached.
