Good to Know... Before You Enroll! Spectators

Register First

All persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given. Registration Information (page 55) Enrollment Forms (pages 56 & 57)

Ages Indicated

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

Self-care “Time Out” Dates This is the date our staff checks class enrollment status. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class may be cancelled. Yes, you can register in-person or by fax after the “Time Out” date if openings exist. To check class status call

329-5370

(M-F 9 AM-6 PM). Remember to bring your receipt to first class for verification.

Special Refund Note

Due to the purchasing of supplies, requests for refunds, credits or transfers after the “Time Out” date will only be honored if your spot can be filled.

In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

Starting & Ending Class Times

Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance. Parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary. Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

Waiting Areas

Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

Makeups

Register On-line Today www.ci.greenfield.wi.us/parksrec

4 GENERAL INFORMATION

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up,” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor.

• Parent/Child Classes

T he spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas.

• Adult Classes

P  lease make arrangements for your children as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

Round Up Sponsorship

The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

Swimming & Water Safety Levels The American Red Cross offers comprehensive course levels that teach your child how to swim skillfully and safely. Skills taught are progressive, so children advance upon completion of all the skills in the previous level. New to our program? Either enroll your child in Starfish (Ages 4-6) or Level One (Ages 6-9), or attend a swim pre-test session to determine which level is most appropriate for your child, based upon their water skills. Levels

Requirements

Skills Taught

Parent and Child Aquatics Parent/Child Swim Ratio 1:10

Ages 1-4 Years Each child must be accompanied by parent or caregiver

Parents and children learn together to increase a child’s comfort level in the water and build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control. This level is fun-filled and helps introduce water safety concepts, encouraging a healthy recreational habit. If your child is not 100% toilet trained, they will need to wear a swim diaper under their swim suit. The water temperature is approximately 80 degrees, which may be cold for younger swimmers, so a long-sleeved swim/sun type top is recommended.

Preschool Aquatics (Ages 4-6) Preschool Level 1 (Starfish) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 2 (Seahorse) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 3 (Goldfish) Ratio 1:6

Ages 4-6 Years Prerequisite: Child must be age 4 on or before first class and be able to submerge head under water

Ages 4-6 Years Prerequisite: Successfully complete Starfish

Ages 5-6 Years Prerequisite: Successfully complete Seahorse

Starfish orients children to the aquatic environment and helps them gain basic aquatic skills that are the foundation for the later levels. Front and back, floats, glides, leg and arm actions are taught. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. .

Seahorse builds upon the Starfish skills to help children gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Bobs, retrieving objects under water, floating and gliding independently, treading water, and combined arm-and-leg actions on front and back are the focus.

Goldfish further develops the Seahorse skills so children gain basic swimming propulsive skills. Floats and glides into a vertical position, rotary breathing, how to change direction while swimming, treading water, and independent swimming with front and back strokes are the primary focus.

Learn-to-Swim (Ages 6-teens) Level 1 Ratio 1:6

Level 2 Ratio 1:6

Level 3 Ratio 1:6

Level 4 Ratio 1:8

Level 5 Ratio 1:8

Level 6 Ratio 1:8

Beyond Level 6 Ratio 1:8

Ages 6-9 Years There are no prerequisites for this level

Ages 6-9 Years Prerequisite: Level 1, 7 years old and completed Seahorse

Ages 7-10 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 2 or Goldfish

Ages 7-12 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 3

Ages 8-12 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 4

Ages 9-13 Years

Introduction to Water Skills Level 1 teaches basic personal water safety and skills to help children feel comfortable in the water while learning elementary aquatic skills. Age-appropriate water safety topics are reviewed.

Fundamental Aquatic Skills Level 2 gives participants success with fundamental skills such as floating and recovering to a vertical position. Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm action on front and back.

Stroke Development Level 3 teaches the survival float, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, backstroke and coordination of front crawl. Participants are introduced to dolphin kick, swimming in deep water, and basic diving skills.

Stroke Improvement Level 4 develops confidence in previously learned strokes and increases distance swimming. Backstroke and breaststroke are further developed. Participants are introduced to butterfly and taught sidestroke.

Stroke Refinement Level 5 refines strokes learned in Level 4 and increases distances of swimming. Participants are also introduced to front and back flip turns.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 5

Swimming and Skill Proficiency Level 6 refines the strokes so participants swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. It helps prepare for more advanced classes such as Lifeguarding and Competitive Swimming.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 6

This level is unique to Greenfield Parks & Recreation to keep kids swimming. Stroke refinements, junior lifeguarding skills, and fitness swimming are just some of the things this level can cover, based upon the interest of the class.


PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT Swimming is a recreational activity that will last a lifetime. Learning to swim happens with swim lessons and spending time in the water during Open Swim for water exploration and play. As a benefit of enrolling your children in the Greenfield Parks & Recreation Dept’s Learn to Swim program, you are automatically able to attend our Open Swim time at no additional cost during the dates of your class, by showing your Learn to Swim receipt at the door. This benefit is for both you and your child who is in lessons (other family members will be charged our regular admission). You and your child can come to the pool to have fun while providing time for them to practice and develop their skills.

Private Swim Lessons—

Youth (Ages 6+)- Adult Private swim lessons are designed to help meet the needs of participants who are seeking more individualized instruction. Teens and adults seeking to improve their swim strokes are welcome. One of our swim instructors will be assigned to work one-on-one with you or your child to accomplish specific strokes or skills during the class. Note: After the "Time Out" date, due to the scheduling of staff, there are no credits or refunds.

Martial Arts Tae Kwon Do Youth - Adult Classes will be conducted by Joe Peterson & Staff, Chosun Black Belt Academy LITTLE NINJAS (Ages 3-5 years) Little Ninjas is an easy-to understand class for the younger child to gain the benefits ofTae Kwon Do. There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught, with additions of important outside aspects for children such asstranger self-defense and lost- in-the-store safety. CHILDREN (Ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and selfcontrol, respect for authority, self-defense, and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force, so it is for emergencies only. TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical, and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, his entire body is his weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees, and feet. FAMILY (Youth (Ages 6+) to Adults) Tae Kwon Do is a wonderful activity to practice as a family! Parents will have a great time working out with their children in the same class. Tae Kwon Do has SO many benefits for both children AND adults that it makes it the perfect way to stay fit and have fun TOGETHER. For adults, TKD helps to increase flexibility, relieve stress, strengthen balance and learn life-saving self-defense. In children, TKD helps to improve confidence, increase focus, build stronger physical skills like balance, coordination and agility, in addition to building great goalsetting skills. No matter the reason for practicing Tae Kwon Do initially, students of the art benefit physically, mentally and spiritually. Practice Tae Kwon Do together but feel the benefits as an individual!

Mailing schedule: SUMMER (May) FALL (August) WINTER/SPRING (December) In addition, specific program flyers are periodically distributed to public and private schools located within the corporate limits of the City of Greenfield. As a public service, timely program information can be found on a regular basis in the CNI Greenfield NOW, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel “Neighbors,” Suburban and Sports sections, Time Warner Community Access Channel, and the department web site at www.greefieldwi.us/parksrec. Nondiscrimination Policy It is the policy of the City of Greenfield Department of Parks and Recreation that no person shall, on the basis of race, color, or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any City of Greenfield sponsored program, activity, or employment. Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, the City of Greenfield will make every reasonable effort to accommodate persons with disabilities in the provision of City services, programs, or activities. If you require special accommodation in order to participate, please inform us when you register. School District Cooperation The Department of Parks & Recreation would like to thank both the Greenfield School District and the Whitnall School District for their support and cooperation with facility scheduling. However, due to school athletic and education programming, some recreation activities may need to be cancelled or rescheduled. The community’s understanding during these times is appreciated. Insurance/Liability The City of Greenfield does not provide hospital/medical insurance coverage for persons participating in sponsored activities and cannot assume responsibility for injury to any participants in its recreation programs. Participants are encouraged to obtain their own insurance coverage prior to the start of the program, and to consult with a physician before participating in any strenuous activity. Photographs For program promotion purposes, photographs will be taken of participants from time to time. If you do not wish to have your photo taken, please tell the photographer and/or class instructor.

52 GENERAL INFORMATION

Lesson Observation/ Visitors Day In an effort to better promote a positive learning environment for programs, only registered participants are permitted in the classroom area. Our instructors welcome the opportunity to discuss participants’ progress with parents after class. The final instructional class may be observed by parents, unless special dates are scheduled by the instructors. Cooperative Programming What does this mean? When you see this symbol, it means this program is being made available as part of a cooperative programming agreement with other local departments or agencies. Individually, each department or agency may not have the facility or instructor or enrollment necessary to offer the program. In working together, the cooperative departments are able to better serve the needs of their residents by expanded program opportunities. New Program Ideas The Department of Parks and Recreation is always receptive to suggestions for the development of new program offerings. Please feel free to give us a call with your ideas.

Park & Recreation Board Meetings The City of Greenfield Department of Parks and Recreation is a governmental agency established for the purpose of providing and managing public recreation programs, facilities, and park/open spaces for the community. The Department is governed by appointed board members who serve as a policy-making body. Regular Park and Recreation Board meetings are generally held on the LAST Thursday of each month (exception: November

and December regular meetings are held on the THIRD Thursday of the month) at 7:00 PM

at the Greenfield City Hall, 7325 West Forest Home Avenue. Agendas and minutes are available at www.greenfieldwi.us. Click on “calendars/meetings/agendas” for information on meeting dates, times and location. Residents are invited to attend, and are welcome to make suggestions or comments. Non-resident Policy Definition: In the case of non-resident participation, it is generally accepted that non-resident users should contribute an additional fee to offset their non-tax status. A non-resident is defined as a person who does not reside or own property within the corporate limits of the City of Greenfield (in general, does

The Department of Parks and Recreation and related facility providers are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

not directly contribute to City of Greenfield property taxes).

TYPO, We Goofed? Occasionally, there may be an error in days, times, registration requirements, locations, or fees. When such errors occur, our staff will do everything possible to correct the situation promptly. The department reserves the right to change program schedules as needed to accommodate demand or school use conflicts. Read your receipt carefully, as any changes since the printing of this RECREATOR will be noted there.

Exception to non-resident user fee/surcharge:

Employment Opportunities Persons interested in obtaining part-time/ seasonal employment with the Department of Parks and Recreation should complete an employment application form at the department office. Openings for positions as lifeguards, officials, program supervisors, and instructors for various programs are usually filled from current applications on file. Qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview as openings become available.

User Fee Surcharge: Persons defined as a nonresident of the City of Greenfield are required to remit double (100% surcharge) the adopted resident program/service fee (i.e. resident fee of $10 = non-resident fee of $20). Nonresidents who falsely register shall forfeit their privilege to participate, and any related fees collected will be retained by the Department (no refund given). • N  on-resident youth who attend either a Greenfield or Whitnall School District School will be assessed at the resident rate. • N  on-residents employed by the City of Greenfield (and spouse; children within immediate household) are exempt from any non-resident related surcharges. • P  ersons who pay partial City of Greenfield property taxes are entitled to a prorated non-resident surcharge based on the percentage of their City of Greenfield tax contribution in relation to their overall property tax bill (payment to other City/Village/ Township entities). For example: If 20% of your overall property tax bill is paid to the City of Greenfield, your non-resident surcharge rate would be 80% (i.e., resident fee of $10 = adjusted non-resident fee of $18).

Become part of the legacy of the parks As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bicentennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Surrounding features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area of the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to:

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Remember a loved one • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Recognize an achievement • Celebrate a special occasion/event • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department. Orders are accepted throughout the year. Bricks are installed in either Spring or Fall. All contributions are tax deductible, pricing is subject to change.

Mayor’s Message Michael J. Neitzke, Mayor

Scan this QR code to link to the City website

Welcome to the Fall Edition of the GREENfield SHEET. With Fall comes children headed back to school at the bus stop, on bicycles, and by foot. Please slow down and drive carefully! Let’s keep them safe! A flurry of economic activity continues to abound in our commercial districts throughout Greenfield, but most notably at 84 South. The first wave of retail has opened, with the second wave now under construction. The residential component has broken ground on the west end of the property. The construction of the large medical office and parking structure will begin before the year is out. The final phase--the corner of 84th & Laytonis currently under design. 84 South, and potential future projects like it big and small, represent the kind of investments required to ensure Greenfield’s growth and vitality in the future. Economic development and redevelopment remains a priority on the top of our list. Making certain that our infrastructure keeps pace with our needs is also a priority. There are no shortages of projects to undertake, though the list gets shorter. Most involve areas that have significant underground utility issues, or reflect what some might consider less than long term decision-making by the City long ago. An example last year was 43rd Street from Layton to Grange. This year’s large project is Edgerton from 27th to Loomis. To date, months have been spent on significant subterranean work to address storm water issues, and to replace aging utilities. The visible road work will begin shortly and move quickly. Your continued patience is always deeply appreciated. We understand the inconvenience, but we want to do it right. Konkel Park continues to be the epicenter of community activity. The construction of a new shelter with running water and real restrooms there provides a great amenity to the Farmers Market and to The Amp. It also provides a rentable income stream for the Parks. Speaking of the Farmers Market, attendance continues to grow year after year, despite the construction activity there this summer. Concerts and events at The Amp are also growing and improving. Look in this Recreator for the events that will be rounding out this season including our first annual Car Show on September 9th, Oktoberfest on the 7th, and our Trick or Trot Run Walk. I’d like to thank all of our sponsors for these events including 84 South, Cobalt Development, Fiduciary Residential Development, Steinhafel’s, plus more (see page 72). Shifting gears to an issue important to all of your elected officials, I’d like to briefly discuss public safety. I believe, as do your Alderpersons, that we need more police officers. We would place funding for them in our budget tomorrow, if State law didn’t restrict growth in expenditures. We continue to look for ways to fund more officers without gutting what we have. It’s a huge priority. I believe public safety expenditures should not be tied to the state-imposed artificially created levy limits. Local government should be able to determine what it needs to spend to provide for the safety of its community. I will continue to work on this issue at whatever level required. Again, check out the offerings in this Recreator and enjoy the Fall! Go Packers, Badgers, Falcons and Hawks!

The City of Greenfield has partnered with SeeClickFix to announce a new platform (called “Greenfield Resolve It”) that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life issues and request City of Greenfield services. With free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Greenfield citizens will now be able to provide department staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and more — valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides Greenfield officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution — engaging Greenfield citizens throughout the process. This partnership not only allows Greenfield citizens to report problems, but also to view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests — not just the ones they report. The Greenfield Resolve It mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to the Greenfield’s website and seeclickfix.com.

Bacteria that cause food borne illness, commonly known as food poisoning, grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. In just two hours, these bacteria can multiply to dangerous levels and can cause foodborne illness. To make sure lunches and snacks are safe for those you pack for, you should follow the four steps to food safety: Clean – Separate – Cook – and Chill. Packing Tips • I f the lunch/snack contains perishable food items like luncheon meats, eggs, cheese, or yogurt, make sure to pack it with at least two cold sources. Harmful bacteria multiply rapidly so perishable food transported without an ice source won’t stay safe long. • F rozen juice boxes or water can also be used as freezer packs. Freeze these items overnight and use with at least one other freezer pack. By lunchtime, the liquids should be thawed and ready to drink. • P  ack lunches containing perishable food in an insulated lunchbox or soft-sided lunch bag. Perishable food can be unsafe to eat by lunchtime if packed in a paper bag. • I f packing a hot lunch, like soup, chili or stew, use an insulated container to keep it hot. Fill the container with boiling water, let stand for a few minutes, empty, and then put in the piping hot food. Tell children to keep the insulated container closed until lunchtime to keep the food hot - 140 °F or above. • I f packing a child’s lunch the night before, parents should leave it in the refrigerator overnight. The meal will stay cold longer because everything will be refrigerator temperature when it is placed in the lunchbox. • I f you’re responsible for packing snack for the team, troop, or group, keep perishable foods in a cooler with ice or cold packs until snack time. Pack snacks in individual bags or containers, rather than having children share food from one serving dish. For More Food Safety tip please visit https://www.foodsafety.gov/.

Send Your Kids Back to School with Their Vaccines Up to Date Back-to-school season is here. It’s a time for parents to gather school supplies and backpacks. And it’s also the perfect time to make sure your kids are up-to-date on their vaccines. Getting children vaccinated is one of the most important things parents can do to help protect their children’s health—and that of their classmates and their community. Most schools require children to be current on vaccinations before enrolling to protect the health of all students. Today’s childhood vaccines protect against serious and potentially life-threatening diseases, including polio, measles, whooping cough, and chickenpox. When children are not vaccinated, they are at increased risk of disease and can spread diseases to others in their classrooms and community—including babies who are too young to be fully vaccinated, and people with weakened immune systems due to cancer and other health conditions. Check with your child’s doctor or the Greenfield Health Department to find out what vaccines they need this year. For example, kids who are 4 to 6 years old may be due for boosters of four vaccines: DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, also called whooping cough), chickenpox, MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), and polio. Older children, like pre-teens and teens, may need Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis), HPV (human papillomavirus), and MenACWY (meningococcal conjugate virus) vaccines. In addition, yearly flu vaccines are recommended for all children 6 months and older. Parents can find out more about the recommended immunization schedule at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents. Adapted from https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/ events/niiw.


Influenza (“Flu”) Shots

Health Quest

Lead Safety

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends an annual influenza vaccine (aka, “shot”) each fall to protect against strains of the influenza virus. Influenza is a highly contagious viral infection of the respiratory passages characterized by fever and severe aches. Influenza can occur in persons of any age, but can be especially harmful in young children or the elderly. Please note that we will not be giving the Flu mist due to the CDC’s recommendations. The Greenfield Health Department will be holding influenza (“Flu Clinics”) this fall. Date and times are as follows: Children’s Clinic: • Thursday, October 12th 10:00 AM-noon & 3:00-5:00 PM • Thursday, October 26th 3:00-5:00 PM Adult Clinic: Thursday, October 19th 10:00 AM-noon Please check the City website, or call the Health Department at 329-5275, for additional information.

The Greenfield Health Department is proud to present the Health Quest educational offerings for fall 2017. Community Education topics: • September 21st- 6:30 PM Come Savor the Flavor of the Mediterranean Location Greenfield Community Center (7215 W. Cold Spring Road) The Mediterranean Diet has been hailed as one of the healthiest ways of eating in the world. Extensive research shows it can help promote good health and longevity. Registered Dietitian, Heather Klug, from The Karen Yontz Women’s Cardiac Awareness Center and Aurora Health Care will: • D  iscuss the foods that make up the Mediterranean Diet • E xplain health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet • P  rovide tips for creating a Mediterranean kitchen in your own home. • H  ow to make a healthy school lunch. A cooking demonstration with small samples will also be included.

Lead exposure in young children can cause reduced cognitive function and attention span, impaired growth, reading and learning disabilities, hearing loss, and a range of other health and behavioral effects. There is No safe blood lead level in children. Lead can be found in and outside of homes built before 1978, the greatest offending source is old lead paint. Other sources include: antique pewter, drapery or window weights, dust from a nearby building renovation, dust or fumes from hobbies that use lead (such as making stained glass or pottery, refinishing furniture, or target practice), fishing weights, imported plastic mini-blinds, old batteries, painted furniture, work clothes and shoes. Parents of small children should be aware of ways to prevent lead poisoning: 1. Test your home for lead. If you live in a home built before 1978, have your home inspected by a licensed lead inspector. Sometimes lead comes from things other than paint in your home, such as: • Candy, toys, glazed pottery, and folk medicine made in other countries • Work like auto refinishing, construction, and plumbing • Soil and tap water 2. Keep children away from lead paint and dust. • Use wet paper towels to clean up lead dust. Be sure to clean around windows, play areas, and floors. • Wash hands and toys often, especially before eating and sleeping. Use soap and water. • Use contact paper or duct tape to cover chipping or peeling paint. 3. Renovate safely. Home repairs like sanding or scraping paint can make dangerous dust. • Keep children and pregnant women away from the work area. • Make sure you and/or any workers are trained in lead-safe work practices. Home repairs like sanding or scraping paint can make dangerous dust. The most important is stopping children from coming into contact with lead. Lead hazards in a child’s environment must be identified and controlled or removed safely. Have your child tested regularly. For more information, contact the Greenfield Health Department at 329-5275. For additional lead information, including information on recalled toys, visit the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services website, http:// dhfs.wi.gov/lead, or the Consumer Product Safety Commission website at www.cpsc.gov

Before Sending Money... Does This Sound Familiar? • Are you sending money to claim a lottery prize? • Are you sending money to help someone get a large sum of money out of their country? • Are you sending money because a relative called from another state or country and told you that they need help? • Are you sending money because you were “guaranteed” a credit card or loan? • Are you sending money to someone you have not met personally? • Are you sending money to someone you’ve never met to pay for their trip to America? These are just some examples of scams being perpetrated using money transfers. If any of these sound like your situation, please call the Greenfield Police Department at (414) 761-5301 for advice.

Skateboarding, Rollerblading, and Play Vehicles Skateboarding, rollerblading and use of any other play vehicles, which includes motorized scooters are only legal on private property where permission has been granted. If you use these items on the street or private property without permission you run the risk of receiving a costly citation.

School Zones and Traffic Congestion As the new school year starts, please slow down and watch for children around our schools! One of the most frequent complaints we receive is related to the amount of traffic and congestion around the schools. Last year, more than 60% of students were driven to school. Here’s how you can help reduce congestion and frustration: - Use the bus. Bus service is provided for all students. - Car pool. Almost all students dropped off and picked up at our schools are single riders in Mom or Dad’s car. - Walk or bike when the weather is nice. Be sure to talk to your student about safety, and always wear a helmet when riding! Finally, the single most effective way to reduce congestion and frustration is to leave early! Most students and parents leave for school just a few minutes before school starts, and then become frustrated when they run into the traffic jam at school. That’s no way to start your day! Leaving just a few minutes early helps stagger drop-offs and reduces congestion so everyone gets to school and work on time!

The Greenfield Police Department has formed a partnership with TestMyTeen. com to offer free home drug test kits to parents in the community. If you suspect your child is using illicit or unprescribed drugs, this is a way of checking your child in the privacy of your own home. These drug kits can be obtained by signing up on the Greenfield Police Department’s website, (www.greenfieldpolice.org). These kits can be obtained anonymously and the Police Department is not made aware of these requests or results. If you suspect your child is using drugs, confirm and stop the use before it becomes an addiction by using these free home drug kits.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, Judy was hired to teach art in the Greenfield School District in 1976, and lived in the community for 20 years with her family. When she retired from teaching in 2009, she made the decision to explore painting with pastels and joined the Wisconsin Pastel Artists. The library is excited to exhibit her impressive work and to welcome Judy back to Greenfield where she made such an important contribution to the arts in our community.

Cherilynn Wood is an emerging artist whose work deals with the complexities of our human consciousness and emotions through abstract mixed media pastel paintings. Born in Milwaukee, Ms. Wood studied at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Her artwork has won numerous awards and can be found in the corporate setting, as well as in private collections, both in the U.S. and internationally.

City staff will be available to discuss tree issues that affect you and your community. Learn how Greenfield has become a leader in modern forestry techniques. With environmentally responsible programs to help handle the very difficult problems we face such as Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive species that threaten the health and life of the urban forest. Celebrate your forest in the City of Trees. Greenfield Forestry Festival Day is funded in part by a 2017 urban forestry grant from the Wisconsin DNR.

Your Trees Are Under Attack!

Have you noticed all the dead trees in Greenfield and surrounding communities? Emerald Ash Borer is in the process of killing every untreated ash tree in the City of Greenfield. If your ash tree is not being treated, you had better plan for its removal. If you don’t want to remove it, treat it now! Trees that are still green can be protected but you have no time to waste. The Emerald ash borer population has multiplied to the point that healthy trees are killed in just one season. When ashes die, they become very brittle, very quickly increasing the likelihood of becoming a hazard. Hazard trees become more costly to remove so if your ash is dead or dying have it removed immediately. Don’t wait! If it is not dead, protect it now by having it treated by a licensed, insured arborist or tree professional. Ash trees are a large percentage of the entire urban forest. Therefore if we are to maintain the health and value of our community, it is important that we replant removed trees with good alternate specie trees. A recommended species list is available on the city web site or visit our free forestry information booth at the Greenfield Farmers Market. Learn what you can do to save your trees and the health of our community forest. Greenfield forestry information booth is funded in part by a 2017 urban forestry grant from the Wisconsin DNR.

What is the Home Repair Loan Program?

The Housing Division offers no interest loans to income qualified homeowners in the suburban communities of Milwaukee County, excluding the Cities of Milwaukee and West Allis. Loans are funded through the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The loans can cover a wide range of repairs required to maintain a home. Some examples include: roofing, gutters, siding, doors, windows, electric, plumbing and heating systems. The focus of the loan will be on the living quarters in the home. Loans can also be used for emergency repairs relating to health and safety and municipal citations. For components that are more extensive than the examples listed above can be discussed with Home Repair Program Staff at the time of application and/or first meeting. If lead hazards are found within the home, these will be addressed as part of the project and loan.

What Homes Qualify?

Homes must be owner-occupied and located in Milwaukee County. Homes in the Cities of Milwaukee and West Allis are excluded. Homes must be single-family or duplexes and must have the equity to cover the cost of repairs. Milwaukee County will place a lien on the property to secure the loan. HOME funded loans can be made on homes with an afterrehab fair market value of $195,000*.

How Much Money Is There?

The amount of money available depends on the program as well as the availability of funding. This is important to remember because the County only receives a certain amount of funds each year that are able to be used for repairs, rehabilitation and accessibility projects. Contact (414) 278-4917 for more information about funding availability.

Households must meet the income guidelines based on family size and gross income, including assets*.
