Both documents will guide Shorewood into the future, grounded in a community-supported vision. The insight, dedication, energy, and effort from residents, the Steering Committee, staff, and other stakeholders, helped to capture the spirit and aspirations that Shorewood is working towards.
On behalf of the planning team, a sincere thank you to all who shared ideas, participated in the process, and played a role in shaping your community. Congratulations on your new plans!
A public hearing for the Shorewood Comprehensive Plan and Parks and Recreation Master Plan was held before the Village’s Plan Commission on March 22, 2023. Representatives from Teska presented both plans and answered questions from the Plan Commissioners and residents that were in attendance. Mayor DeBold joined the discussion to highlight work related to the plans that the Village has been engaged in, and conveyed how the new plans will support and advance those efforts.
Both plans are anticipated to be presented to the Village Board for their consideration and adoption on Tuesday, April 11th at 7:00 p.m. at the Shorewood Village Hall.
Shorewood’s first-ever Parks and Recreation Master Plan is ready for review! The Draft evaluates the Village’s network of parks and recreational facilities, assesses their existing conditions, and provides recommendations for enhancements to the system based on public input, staff input, and site visits. This Parks Plan was completed in conjunction with the Comprehensive Plan to ensure consistency and integration of recommendations.
