Shorewood village board OKs security fencing at Atwater Park

April 3, 2012

The Shorewood village board last night agreed to a conceptual plan that calls for putting security fencing at the top of the bluff area at Atwater Park.

The proposal is in response to security and vandalism concerns that have been raised in recent years during periods of time when the park is closed.

The specific design and placement of the fencing is still under consideration. It will likely be installed in June.

Public works or police staff will likely lock a gate each night and open it each morning.

Village Manager Chris Swartz said another option - a timer that would lock and unlock a gate to the park - is also under consideration.
