Public Meeting Scheduled To Discuss Restoration Of Beaver Dam Swan Park Lagoon

(Beaver Dam) The public is invited to attend a meeting next week to discuss the restoration of the lagoon at Beaver Dam Swan Park. The brick walls of the natural water feature at the historic park have been sagging in recent years. The city included $445-thousand dollars in their capital borrowing plan to address the issue, along with $1.4-million dollars planned over two years to replace the aging wading pool with a splash pad. MSA Professional Services of Baraboo will perform the engineering services for $65-thousand dollars. City officials say the goal is to provide functional and aesthetically pleasing restoration of the lagoon edge. There have also been talks of other improvements to the project area including bridge restoration, pedestrian access to the water edge, natural-looking waterfalls on the island, lagoon aeration, and accent lighting. Representatives from the city as well as the project consultant will attend the meeting to discuss proposed concepts and answer questions. The public will also be able to provide comments. The meeting will be held next Thursday (June 17th) at city hall on 205 South Lincoln Avenue beginning at 5:30pm.
