Notice of this meeting, along with the agenda, was posted at the following locations in the Village of Plain: the Municipal Building; the Plain Post Office; and, The Peoples Community Bank on Monday, July 11, 2007.  Notice was faxed to the Home News and the Baraboo News Republic on the same date.


Buchanan presented ideas for a Master Plan for the Park and Pool Recreation area.  The Village needs to implement a long range plan for the park area and not just look at what’s going to happen over the next year.  Ideas for the plan include relocation of the tennis courts to the northeast corner of the park, a basketball court, pool reconstruction and modernization, walking path around the perimeter, an attractive retention pond on the corner of Bridge Road and Highway B, enhance the entrance to the park, additional foliage, increased parking, and changing Park Avenue to a one way street.


Financing for the project would need to be addressed.  Fund drives and grants need to be looked into.  The first step is to get an estimate from Westbrook Engineering.  Also find out what ideas they may have to perfect the Master Plan.


The meeting was adjourned at 7:30 p.m.
