Sussex Week Ahead: National Night Out & Village Park Discussion
Between a gathering regarding the controversial Village Park reconstruction project to the annual National NIght Out, this is a list of places to be and things to do this week in Sussex.
Sussex-Lisbon Merger Meeting
Another public forum has been scheduled for Sussex and Lisbon residents looking for more information on the potential merger for Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Held at the Hamilton Fine Arts Center, this meeting will clear up any new or lingering questions residents may have, especially after the board said they may not support the merger.
Farmers Market on the Hill
Community members can enjoy seasonal, fresh produce and hand-crafted items weekly at Market on the Hill – Pewaukee’s Farmers Market – on the Waukesha County Technical College main Pewaukee campus. The market, coordinated by Positively Pewaukee and WCTC, is held Wednesdays through Oct. 24 – rain or shine – from 3 to 6:30 p.m. It is conveniently located at WCTC in Lot 19, next to the Workforce Development Center.
National Night Out/Ice Cream Social
On Wednesday starting at 6 p.m. in the Village Hall parking lot, it's Sussex's night out against crime during National Night Out. There will be free items for kids, bicycle helmet fitting (bring your helmet), diabetic screenings and fire and police demonstrations.
This event is being held in conjunction with the Pauline Haass Public Library's Ice Cream Social, a fundraiser for the library. There will be brownies and ice cream on the library lawn for just 25 cents, and used books for sale. In addition, the library will have crafts & games available.
Village Park Reconstruction Meeting
The Village of Sussex is calling on residents during National Night Out to provide feedback on the latest update of the Village Park Master Plan, a multi-million dollar project that could completely transform Sussex Village Park. The meeting will be during the event, so it also starts on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Village Hall's parking lot.
This is the first of two 'open houses' that are scheduled so residents can view the plans, ask questions and make comments on the project, a topic of heated discussion after 3-D design plans were released to the public.
