Preserve Maple Park National Historic District
The Maple Park District of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, has been designated a National Historic District by the Department of the Interior so as to protect the integrity of the homes and lands in that district. There is an attempt underway to modify the Comprehensive City Plan, raze the historic residence at 833 Wisconsin Street, and construct a parking lot. This will disrupt the continuity of the historic district, jeopardize real estate values, and destroy the ambience and nature of this district. The Plan Commission and City Council have also amended their own resolutions regarding timelines for such changes to the comprehensive plan and are attempting to expedite this process in two months, contrary to the required 5 months.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who call on the City of Lake Geneva Plan Commission, Common Council, and all city administrators to refrain from modifying the Comprehensive City Plan in the area of and adjacent to The Maple Park National Historic District.
