MEQUON - The city is looking into conducting a traffic and parking analysis on the town center area.
Director of Public Works Kristen Lundeen got input from the common council March 14 regarding the direction to go and when.
Lundeen said the parking and traffic analysis for the civic campus and other adjacent town center developments was recommended as part of a workshop meeting.
Alderman Robert Strzelczyk said residents have been saying they go to the town center and can’t park to visit the amenities they want to visit.

HOW OUR MEMBERSHIP WORKS
Membership in a Rotary club is by invitation only. We want to make sure you join a club that best fits your passion and perspective. We can connect you with a club that's right for you and make it easy to get involved and on your way to membership immediately.
- You express interest - Let us know a little about yourself and what you’re looking for in a club. We’ll find the local clubs in your area and let them know you’re interested.
- Rotary matches you with a club - Based on your preferences and interests, Rotary leaders in your community will match you with the local club that fits you best.
- A local club contacts you - A Rotary club member will contact you by email or phone to discuss your interest in Rotary. You’ll be invited to get to know the club better by attending a club meeting, a social event, or even to join in on a service project as a volunteer.
- The club invites you to join - Now that you and a local club have spent some time together and determined that you’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Each club has its own ways of welcoming new members; they may hold a ceremony for you.
- You’re a member! - Enjoy getting involved in your new club as a Rotary member. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event. Lead and contribute to your new club.
