Input sought on plans for Cross Plains Ice Age Reserve complex

MADISON – The public will have two opportunities to tour the Cross Plains Ice Age National Scenic Trail Interpretive Site and Ice Age National Scientific Reserve, located together in the town of Cross Plains, and then review possible alternative futures for the complex at two public meetings.

The National Park Service and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have developed four alternative plans for the property, which is located south of Highway 14 between Cross Plains and Middleton. Ice Age National Scientific Reserve

Public tours of complex will be offered August 29 and Sept. 2

Tours will be offered on Saturday, August 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday, September 2 from 3 to 6 p.m. Because the site is currently undeveloped for visitor use and very limited parking is available, a shuttle will be provided from Middleton Town Hall, 7555 W.

Public Meetings on alternatives Sept. 9 & 10

The public will have an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed alternatives for the complex at two public meetings. Both meetings will be held from 4 to 8 p.m., with presentations at 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. The meetings will be held:

Wednesday, September 9, Middleton - at the Middleton Town Hall at 7555 W. Old Sauk Road.

Thursday September 10, Cross Plains - at the Town of Cross Plains Community Center at 3734 County Trunk P.
