At last night’s meeting of the city’s Parks and Recreation Board, Renee Reckin and Lisa Niles, both of the Little Muskego Lake Association, appeared before the Board with a beautification plan for Idle Isle, which, according to them, is the lens through which some 80% of people see the lake.

Among other items and ideas, their plan calls for a combination of mulching, weed killing, planting a variety of low-maintenance plants, donation plaques, a rinse station for boats, and improving and simplifying existing city ordinance signage.

Reckin and Niles are seeking to engage as many volunteers and raise as much money in private donations as they can for this plan, and they stated their desire to work closely with the Parks and Rec. Department and other organizations in the community to help make this all possible.

Eventually, it was mentioned, this plan could form the basis for a longer-range five-year plan.

After discussion, the Board gave the go-ahead to Reckin and Niles to proceed with the landscaping segment of the plan, which calls for improvements by the boat launch and piers.
