Northeast Neighborhood Development Update: Public Comment Period


The Wisconsin DNR is currently reviewing Fitchburg's Northeast Neighborhood Development proposal and has announced a timeline for their process.  The public comment period started on March 12, and it will close on April 3.  The DNR expects to make a decision in early to mid-April.  For more information about the development proposal and the public comment period, please click here.


How to Submit a Public Comment


We need as many public comments submitted as possible! Please help us show the DNR how much our residents care about the negative impacts of this development. DNR must make their decision based on the water quality impacts of the proposed development.  Your comments will have the most influence if they address water quality concerns.  For example, comments focusing on the negative impact of the runoff from the proposed development on the Waubesa Wetlands will carry the most weight.  The Town’s concern is that the stormwater facilities are based on out of date data, and will fail, causing flooding carrying nutrients and pollutants that will turn the high-quality Waubesa Wetlands in to a degraded wetland overgrown with invasive weeds.


Please take a few minutes to create a comment and submit it to Lisa Helmuth, the DNR staff person handling the review, by email to lisa.helmuth@wisconsin.gov or mail it to the address below:
