Welcome to the Town of Dunn

Help save Lake Waubesa and the Waubesa Wetlands!

Both of these jewels of Dunn are endangered by a proposed development in the Northeast Corner of Fitchburg.  You can help by doing three easy things:

1) Come to a potluck and see the new short video "Waubesa Wetlands in Danger," starring Dr. Cal DeWitt, Dr. Joy Zedler, and Tracy Hames, on Friday, Aug. 22 at the Fitchburg Public Library, 5530 Lacy Rd., upstairs.  The potluck starts at 5:45 p.m. and the program at 6:30, but you must be in by 6, when the library closes.

2) Write to all the commissioners of the CARPC (Capital Area Regional Planning Commission) at once at allcommissioners@CapitalAreaRPC.org, asking them to reject Fitchburg's application to bring its "Northeast Neighborhood" into the Urban Service Area.  For more info, visit www.westwaubesa.org.  If you don't do email, you can address a letter to All CARPC Commissioners, City County Bldg. Room 362, 210 Martlin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Madison, WI  53703.

3) Attend the public hearing at the CARPC meeting on Thurs., Sept. 11 at the Fitchburg City Hall, 5520 Lacy Rd., in the Council Chambers.  Though the meeting starts at 6:30 p.m., you needn't come 'til 8 p.m., the earliest we think the Fitchburg applications will be addressed.  The meeting will end at 11 p.m., and if everyone has not had a chance to speak, they can do so at a second September meeting, date to be announced.  The commissioners' discussion and vote will most likely occur at that second meeting.

Many hands make ambitious goals possible!
The West Waubesa Preservation Coalition has been working for 8.5 years to stop this development.  We believe there is a good chance that the CARPC will turn this down, but your participation is crucial!  Get educated at the potluck, express yourselves to the commissioners by email or letter, and then show you care by registering in opposition (and speaking for up to 3 min. if you like) at the public hearing!  We can do it!



There is currently a vacancy on the Parks Commission.  If you are interested in volunteering as a commissioner, please contact Mary Gross at 838-1081 ext. 201.  You may also fill out an application here and send it to the Town Hall or click the "Submit" button on the top of the form to email it to the Town Hall.
