General Information From the Director’s Desk… Oh, Spring is surely coming, Her couriers fill the air; Each morn are new arrivals, Each night her ways prepare; I scent her fragrant garments, Her foot is on the stair. ~John Burroughs, “A March Glee”

Spring is upon us, and we are all bustling about to prepare our facilities for new seasons of enjoyment. We’ve got more great things planned for 2017…here’s but a sampling: • Work will continue this summer on the FITNESS TRAIL located in Klipstine Park. The pathway has been 75% installed, and several more exercise stations will be added this summer. You can access it from the rear of the community center, or the Parkview School East parking lot. • Pioneer Park will feature expanded shelter seating with several permanent tables

installed on the south side of the shelter/ concession stand. The concrete slab was installed in fall. A widened concrete pathway from the tennis court roadway (Commanche) to Diamond #3 is scheduled to be installed this summer. • Fort Howard Park will get a new piece of playground equipment this summer, replacing a small 25 year old structure. Staff is preparing several options for the Fort Howard neighborhood community to vote on. • Ashwaubomay Lake will get a new shallow-water play amenity. We are looking at several in-water kiddie slide options. • Summer concerts will be moved back to Klipstine Park this summer, with the rainsite being in the new community center. • The ASHWAUBENON BLAST is expanding…it will now incorporate a CAR SHOW

Home Safety Checklist Think your home is hazard free? We’ll share helpful resources to identify risky areas in yours or your loved one’s home, including ways to fix them, and how to prevent accidents from happening. Recent research conducted by Home Instead, Inc. provides a compelling look at senior home safety. The survey of ER doctors, seniors and adult children reveals that home isn’t always the safe haven that seniors and their loved ones dream about. Did you know, 100% of ER doctors in the U.S. say it’s very important for adult children to join their parents one day a year to perform a safety check of their aging parents’ homes. Sadly only 44% reported having done this in the last year. Date: Tuesday, May 23 Presenter: Home Instead Senior Care Staff Time: 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. Location: Ashwaubenon Community Center Fee: Free

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW CHANGING ROOM POLICY. Children 5 and older are asked to use appropriate changing rooms. We have also have 3 family changing rooms available in the warm water pool. PARENT WATCH POLICY: Parents are welcome to watch, but with your child’s interest in mind, we ask that you keep interaction with your child to a minimum. Our instructors have found that the quality of instruction has often been affected by parents and/or sibling distraction, interruptions and various other concerns during class time. We also feel it is most beneficial for children to have recreational time with their peers. Our instructors always welcome the opportunity to discuss participant’s progress with parents. Please contact your instructor before or after class with any special concerns. REFUND POLICY. If a participant cancels a registration, $5 will be charged for processing with the balance of the activity fee being refunded. Cancellations may occur up to two days before an activity unless there is a registration deadline. NO REFUNDS will be given after an activity has started. POOL TEMPERATURE: Competitive pool is kept at 81 degrees F and the warm water pool is kept at 89 degrees F. LOCKER FACILITIES: The pool offers storage for your belongings while using the pool. There are lockers available in each locker room in that may be locked with a personal lock. GOGGLES: For levels 1-3 we do not recommend goggles because children need to learn to be comfortable in the water without any aids. However, with the upper level classes, goggles are recommended as students are expected to spend significant amount of time doing a variety of skills with their faces in the water. Goggles will help to reduce eye irritation. Please note: Mask type goggles with the nose piece attached are strictly prohibited.

Forestry STREET TREES AVAILABLE TO RESIDENTS The Neighborhood Street Tree Planting Program will once again be offered in the fall of 2017. The planting program is a partnership between the Village and its residents to promote the benefits of tree-lined streets. The resident pays for the tree while planting and maintenance will be the Village’s responsibility. A selection of suitable trees will be sent to interested residents with an order form in early fall and planting will be done in late October or early November. Interested residents are asked to call the Village Forester before September 1, 2017 to be included in the program.

Residents asked to help prevent spread of oak wilt To minimize the potential for an oak wilt infection, the Village of Ashwaubenon has adopted an ordinance to PROHIBIT THE PRUNING OR WOUNDING OF OAKS FROM APRIL 1st TO JULY 15th. This policy applies to public as well as private trees. Contact the Village Forester for additional information.

VILLAGE CELEBRATES ARBOR DAY

Thirty-eight trees were provided by the Packer’s Green Team “First Down for Trees” project to help increase the species diversity within Ashwaubenon’s urban forest. With the recent discovery of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Ashwaubenon, the Village’s goal is to reduce our ash numbers by initiating pre-emptive removal and replacement of existing, healthy ash trees. The Green Bay Packers Green Team and Wisconsin Public Service initiated First Downs for Trees as a joint effort with Brown County communities, the WI_DNR, the US Forest Service, SCA and Green Bay Packaging to promote the planting of trees. The Village of Ashwaubenon Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department thanks our generous partners to make this project a HUGE success!!!

Forestry

Volunteer opportunities offered The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department currently has several volunteer based programs designed for citizen’s to take an active role in their community.

ADopt a garden

Volunteers plant the gardens beneath the park signs with the design and flowers of their preference. Adoptees are asked to plant, weed and maintain the beds throughout the growing season with Village Staff providing watering and fertilization. *** We are seeking a volunteer for the garden at Waterford Park near Pioneer Drive and Skylark Lane.

EAB CONFIRMED IN ASHWAUBENON!!! Ashwaubenon is unfortunately the newest municipality in Brown County to confirm an infestation of emerald ash borer (EAB). The initial tree is located on the SW corner of Fox heights and Marvelle Lanes. Discovery was made on January 26, 2017 when suspicious branch samples were collected from the tree, analyzed and subsequently confirmed positive for EAB by the WI-DNR. Since that time, a second discovery was made at the Municipal Services building on ash previously designed for pre-emptive removal.

Emerald Ash Borer QUICK FACTS:

Adopt a park Involves picking up litter from your selected park a minimum of three times per year. Trash bags and pickup afterwards can be provided by Village Staff. Each group’s efforts will be recognized with a sign to thank the organization or family for helping keep “their” park looking good. *** Parks currently available for adoption in 2017 include: Ashwaubomay, Bill Diamond Fields, Cormier, Klipstine, Lois Aubinger and Valley View in addition to many trailways located throughout the community. If you are interested in becoming involved in any of these programs, please contact the Village Forester at the Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department for assistance. 44 • Village of Ashwaubenon • www.ashwaubenon.com

• EAB is an imported beetle from Asia that slipped into this country in wood packing material • EAB arrived in about 2002 through the Port of Detroit • EAB adult beetles do little damage • EAB larvae feed just beneath the bark and cut off the vessels which transport nutrients and water • EAB has killed more than 50 million ash trees in the U.S. and Canada since its discovery • EAB was discovered in Wisconsin in 2008 • As of 2017, there are 1,217 Village owned ash trees which line Ashwaubenon’s streets and occupy our parks


Emerald Ash Borer

EMARALD ASH BORER WHAT CAN I DO? • Keep up to date on EAB • Don’t move Firewood • Remove infested trees and dispose or utilize properly • Decide if you will chemically treat healthy ash trees • Inspect ash trees annually • Replant with other species

What are the signs of EAB Infestation? Woodpecker feeding Crown dieback

S-Shaped larval tunnels

Excess sprouting on trunk

Consider your options…

Do you protect your ash tree? Ash trees can be saved if they are chemically treated. Trees may need to be treated throughout their lives. If your ash tree is healthy and is enhancing your landscape, it may be worthwhile to protect your tree. Healthy trees are valuable and provide many benefits such as home energy savings, property value, shade and reducing storm water runoff. For more info on chemically treating ash, see www.emeraldashborer.wi.gov Click on the Homeowners tab for further links on tree or insect identification as well as chemical options. Should I remove my ash tree and replace it? Trees which are unhealthy, have structural problems, are planted in poor sites and are not important to the landscape, and/or showing many outward signs of EAB infestation should be considered for removal and replacement. Once EAB gets established in Ashwaubenon, trees left untreated will die. Tress killed by EAB quickly become a liability due to limbs breaking off, and become more difficult to remove since they shatter when hitting the ground. Who should I hire to treat and/or remove my ash tree? Work with a professional arborist. Hire an arborist which is insured, preferably one that is an International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist. Ask for references. If you hire an arborist to chemically treat your tree, make sure they are a WI Certified Pesticide Applicator. Get a couple of estimates from different arborists.

And also… • Bark splitting • D-Shaped exit holes 1/8” in diameter

The Village of Ashwaubenon has been preparing for EAB’s arrival for over a decade. Key actions we have taken to prepare for EAB are: •D  iscontinued the planting of all • Increased planting in Parks that ash in 2005 are heavily populated with ash •C  oordinated with various State to increase species diversity agencies on trapping, detection • C  reated an EAB Readiness plan and inspection programs in 2013 • Initiated a pre-emptive removal • S ecured a $25,000 grant to program to reduce our ash popuchemically treat 249 of the Villation by 5% for each of the last lage’s 464 inventoried ash park 5 years and replant the site with trees another species when appropriate • C  reated a park tree Master Planting plan in 2016

Emerald Ash Borer TIME TO TREAT PRIVATE ASH TREES The Village of Ashwaubenon encourages residents who have any species of ash on their property to immediately consider protective treatments for Emerald Ash Borer. EAB was discovered in Ashwaubenon on January 26 near the intersection of Fox Heights and Marvelle Lanes. Please contact an ISA Certified Arborist to discuss treatment options.

EAB Information Available Visit the Village website at www.ashwaubenon.com for viewing… click on Departments > Parks, Recreation and Forestry > Forestry > Emerald Ash Borer to view important information about emerald ash borer.

Please Don’t Move Firewood!!! where you’ll burn it! Other things to keep in mind: - Don’t take firewood with you on your camping trip, up to your hunting camp or bring firewood back from your cottage ‘up north’ to your house. - If you already moved firewood, and you need to dispose of it, burn it

Brown County is under State and Federal quarantines that restrict the movement of firewood and other wood products originating within Brown County. Don’t risk starting a new infestation of an invasive insect or disease… Harvest or buy firewood

quickly and completely. Make sure to rake the storage area carefully and burn the debris also. For additional quarantine information check out the following website: www.datcpservices.wisconsin.gov/ eab/index.jsp

Most of Wisconsin is EAB-free, including most of the northern half and the yellow areas in all quarantined counties. EAB has been confirmed only in those cities, villages and townships colored dark green. By following quarantine rules and limiting the transport of ash wood and all firewood, we can slow down EAB's spread to the northern forests and un-infested communities in the south.

Storm Water Utility

W

ith the creation of the Storm Water Utility in 2012, all developed parcels in the Village have received a storm water usage charge (a line item included on the Water & Sewer Utility invoice or a separate Storm Water Utility invoice) based on the amount of impervious surface that parcel has. Impervious surfaces are those that prevent water from infiltrating into the ground, such as rooftops, driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks. The amount of impervious surface was determined from the 2014 Aerial Photos completed for Brown County (available on the Village Website through “Access Ashwaubenon”).

to ensure Waters of the State are kept clean. Through the Wisconsin Pollution Discharge and Elimination System (WPDES) permitting process, the Village must continually stay in compliance with the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Discharge Permit issued to the Village in 2006 and renewed in 2014. A Utility also includes all tax-exempt parcels in with this effort so that all generators of storm water runoff are working together on storm water management.

Projects being funded by the Storm Water Utility in 2017 include modifications to a pond near the Commodity Lane/Main Avenue intersection, runoff conveyance measurements in floodplain areas, system maintenance (i.e. existing pond dredging, storm sewer replacement and cleaning) street sweeping, yard waste management, acquisition for future pond construction and continued overall system management planning.

A typical residential lot has 3,316 square feet of impervious surface which is the basis for the annual rate of $50 per equivalent runoff unit (ERU). 1 ERU is the same as 1 Usage charge on the Utility invoice. The Village has calculated each parcel’s ERU/Usage. A parcel with 3,316 square feet of impervious surface will see a $12.50 storm water charge on their quarterly water bill. If a parcel has less than the average amount of impervious surface, the Usage charge will be less. Larger parcels will have multiple ERU/Usage charges. Storm Water Utility funds are being used to meet mandates by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

If you have any questions regarding the Storm Water Utility or your storm water charge, please contact the Village Engineer, Steve Birr, in the Public Works Department at (920) 492-2308. Join our fan page on www.facebook.com • Spring & Summer 2017 • 49
