Good to Know... Before You Enroll! What Do These Symbols Mean? First Time Offered, give it a try!

Cooperative Program agreement with other local recreation departments or agencies.

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 61) Enrollment Forms (pages 62 & 63)

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

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

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

Round Up Sponsorships

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.

What To Bring

American Red Cross

Swimming and Water Safety Program Our Learn to Swim program follows the principles and methods of the American Red Cross to combine the best in swim instruction with a strong emphasis on drowning prevention and water safety. Learn how to swim with the most trusted name in aquatic training. LEVELS: Please refer to the chart on page 10. Participants start at either Starfish or Level One and as their skill level progresses, they move up through the levels. At the conclusion of each semester, each child will be given a skill sheet indicating their progress. PROFESSIONAL STAFF: The Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department is a Licensed Training Provider (LTP) of American Red Cross programs. Our staff members are trained and certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors (WSI), American Red Cross Lifeguard Instructors (LGI) and Lifeguards (LG). 2018 Winter/Spring Swim Staff

Shaun Hibben (WSI, LGI, LG), Amanda Hill (WSI, LGI, LG), Susie Mejchar (WSI, LGI, LG), Perry Perkins (WSI, LGI, LG), Michael Beckman (WSI, LG), Katie Reid (WSI, LG), Jensen Ritzow (WSI,LG), Bobby Skubal (WSI, LG), Tami Steger (WSI, LG), Peter Tamblyn (WSI,LG), Trevor Thiemer (WSI, LG), Brittany Zellner (WSI,LG), Angelica Bell (LG), Eric Effinger (LG), Katelyn Koester (LG), Mary Mejchar (LG),

Participants must furnish their own suits, locks, and towels. Patrons are allowed to bring towels & bags on the deck. The Department of Parks & Recreation and School Districts are not responsible for any lost or damaged articles. Showers must be taken before swimming. NO FOOD OR DRINKS are permitted. Locker room attendants are NOT on duty... However, locker room checks will be made periodically by pool staff. Youth who are 5 years of age or older must use the genderappropriate locker room. Prior to the start of the class and once dismissed from the pool, participants are not supervised by the swim staff. Please plan accordingly.

Pool Temperature & Maintenance

Water and air temperature is regulated by the High School maintenance department, not the Department of Parks & Recreation. Due to limited capabilities of swimming pool equipment, the maintenance department is making every attempt to maintain a water temperature of 80°. This may be cold for some swimmers.

Pool Location & Locker Rooms

Pre-registration required. Participants are taken on a first come, first served basis; however, if we have an idea of how many will be in attendance, staff can be scheduled accordingly to serve you better. Sorry, staff will not be able to handle registrations at the pre-test.

• Whitnall High School Pool Located at 5000 South 116th Street (116th Street between Layton & Edgerton Aves). Use the entrance to the far left when you face the building. Enter, turn to your right, and proceed down the hall to the locker rooms. The only pool entrance is through the locker rooms. • Greenfield High School Pool Located at 4800 South 60th Street (South 60th & Layton Ave). Use door #11 located on the south side of the building. Upon entering, turn to your left to walk towards the pool doors. Locker room entrances are also to your left down a hallway. Please enter the pool from the locker rooms. The Greenfield High School Pool does offer a Family locker room.

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 Departments 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.

Mike Seavert, Instructor Celebrating our 20th year, the aquatic badge workshops were introduced in 1998 in response to the requests to “lend” our aquatics staff expertise. The overall goal has been to make it possible for Boy and Girl Scouts to complete their various aquatic themed badges/ recognitions. As the badges have changed over the years, so have our class/workshop offerings. If you have a youth group with similar recognitions or requirements, please submit them to our office for consideration for inclusion in future semesters. The Boy and Girl Scout Badge workshops were a 1999 Wisconsin Park & Recreation Association Silver Star Award winner for program excellence.

Swimming provides an excellent cardiovascular and muscle-strengthening exercise, allowing you to work vigorously without placing stress on your bones and joints. This is not an organized program rather participants set their own pace swimming using the lap lanes. Please observe the typical rules for lap lane courtesy which include: 1) Check in with the Lifeguard BEFORE entering the water. 2) Lanes are first come, first served. Come to the pool expecting to circle swim – staying to the right and switching sides as you make your turn. 3) Treat other swimmers with the same courtesy and respect you expect. There are three ways to participate in our lap swim program: 1) Sign up for our Swim and Stay Fit challenge which then gives you admission to Lap Swim and Open swim hours during the season you are enrolled. 2) Drop in and pay the daily admission rate each pool visit. 3) Become a member of the Greenfield School District’s Fitness Center (please contact the School District directly or see their website for details).

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 of Tae 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 as stranger 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 self-control, 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.

OPEN HOUSE (New Students) Wednesday 5:10 PM December 20, February 21 and April 18

Take this opportunity to meet the instructor and learn what takes place in the classroom — activities, Korean customs, and rules of etiquette.

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 lifesaving 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!

Because the official color of Dutch royalty is orange, much of the holiday food features an orange hue. While our menu won’t be distinctly orange, it will be distinctly Dutch with Gehacktballen met Jus (meatballs and gravy) and Poffertjes (puffy pancakes). The savory meatballs are very versatile and leftovers (if you have any!) can be used in tasty sandwiches. The pancakes are served with butter and powdered sugar and provide a sweet end to the birthday celebration. Recipes will be shared to use at home to prepare Dutch Day treats for family and friends…while sampling Julie’s creations! Monday, April 23 6:00-7:30 PM 103140-02 Greendale High School Room 135 $20 / $30 Non-Res. Time Out: Tuesday, April 17

WISCONSIN FOOD FAVORITES

Ask someone from another state about the food of Wisconsin and they will most likely say “Beer, Brats, Cheese”. Yet, there is so much more! Wisconsin has some incredible local foods; you can choose from an extraordinary array of edibles: produce from apples cranberries to zucchini; ethnic sausages and grass-fed meats; fish from lake and stream; foraged foods; and specialties like handcrafted beers and wines and cream puffs. Tonight, Staci has picked out some favorites that will please your friends and family. You’ll sample…Brat-stickers with Beer-Soy Dipping Sauce; Captains Steak Joynt-style Beer Cheese Fondue with Captains “Chips”; Chicken Booyah; and Cranberry-Cherry Rustic Tart.

GRILLED CHEESE & MORE….

Cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food according to food historians, popular across the world in many cultures. Evidence indicates that, in the U.S., the modern version of the “Grilled Cheese Sandwich” originated in the 1920’s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became readily available. But tonight, we are going beyond the weird yellow cheese squares and taking it up a notch. These sandwiches are hearty and filling and delicious, yet still give you that childhood comfort food feeling. You’ll sample...Gluten-free Grilled Cheese on Cauliflower “Bread”; Deep-fried Salami & Pickle Grilled Cheese; Whole Grain Grilled Buttermilk Bleu Cheese with Smashed Avocado & Roasted Tomatoes; and Brussel Sprout & Mushroom Grilled Cheese with Prosciutto.

HANDS ON COOKING YOOPER PASTY COOKING

Adults & Teens (Ages 16+) Staci Joers, Cooking with Class, Instructor Pasty (rhymes with nasty--but that is definitely not its description) originated with Cornish miners who migrated to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the 1800’s. They brought with them their beloved national dish: the pasty. The Finnish miners that followed adopted these meat pies as their own (easily transportable for long subterranean days!), and the pasty became such a large part of the regional culture that there’s an annual pasty festival in early summer. Do you love them? Have you always wanted to make them, but didn’t know how? Well, this is the class for you! We’re gonna “chop, dice, slice and bake up” a batch of pasties and each person will get to take home three (3) to eat or freeze. These delectable pastry pockets are filled with beef and pork, potatoes, onions, carrots and, of course, rutabaga! Tuesday, March 27 5:30-9:00 PM 103130-04 Greendale High School Room 135 $36 / $46 Non-Res.

ASIAN INK BRUSH PAINTING

Adults (Ages 18+) Experience for yourself the art of ink-and-brush painting. Ink and brush painting is the calligraphic line (dancing, plunging, dotting, and flicking to portray the spirit of movement and vitality while capturing the essence of the subject by eliminating all but the most necessary details). Explore how to simplify visual elements with minimal brush strokes to interpret images with an emphasis placed on the beauty of each individual stroke of the brush. Learn how the brush techniques include not only line drawing but also the stylized expressions of shade and texture (cunfa) and the dotting methods (dianfa) used mainly to differentiate trees and plants and also for simple embellishment. Program fee includes the pen used to teach this technique. Monday, February 19 6:30-8:00 PM 103521-04 Greendale Middle School Art Room $16 / $26 Non-Res. Time Out: Tues, Feb. 13

BLOCK PRINTING

Adults (Ages 18+) Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image on to paper, fabric, wood, canvas or any other materials you might want to experiment with at home. Block Printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber, or any other materials. We will be working with linoleum. You will find that images that are printed with this technique are typically much bolder than other types of printmaking. As this is done by hand, the ink sits on the surface which adds a raised texture to the paper. In this two-night class, you will draw, design, and carve your designs on to a block. On the second night, you will use your design block to print utilizing different paper options such as rice paper, card stock, and different color drawing paper to see how each provides a unique look for your designs. Sharp carving tools will be used to carve into the block. Monday / 2 sessions March 19 and 26 103521-15 6:30-8:30 PM Greendale Middle School Art Room $26 / $36 Non-Res. Time Out: Tues, March 13

58 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. Lost and Found If you have lost or misplaced an item in one of our parks or program facilities, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department office. Articles that are found and turned into the office are kept for 60 days. After that period of time, the items are donated to a local charitable organization. The Department of Parks and Recreation and related facility providers are not responsible for any lost or stolen items. 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. 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.

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

not directly contribute to City of Greenfield property taxes).

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). Exception to non-resident user fee/surcharge: • 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).

Winter/Spring 2018 Recreator | www.ci.greenfield.wi.us/parksrec

Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity (i.e. unemployment, long term illness or other hardships) may apply for a reduction or waiver of fee and should contact the Parks & Recreation Office prior to program registration.

GENERAL INFORMATION 59


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.

Emergencies — call 9-1-1

Mayor’s Message Michael J. Neitzke, Mayor Welcome to the Winter/Spring Edition of the GREENfield SHEET. Positive activity within the City of Greenfield continues at a strong pace. My on-going commitment to make the City a Better Place, the BEST place, has never been stronger. Economic development within the City is flourishing. Construction crews continue to work through the winter in the City’s largest commercial development, 84 South. At the time of this writing, approximately 30% of the development was completed. Groundbreaking for the Aurora office building recently occurred, the residential and commercial components of 84 South continue their course, and the old Steinhafel’s store will soon be raised for an exciting new corner. The Meijer’s store on 60th & Layton anchors a reinvigorated “City Center.” There has been SIGNIFICANT interest from the development community for sites throughout Greenfield. As I’ve said before, there is a Renaissance in Greenfield. Great people, great access, great location all equal great opportunity. Creating a sense of place in Greenfield remains to be a high priority. Konkel Park continues to be the epicenter of community activity and interaction. The amphitheater (“the Amp”) had a ton of great events this year, and will carry that tradition into 2018. My two favorites “Beer, Bacon & Blues” and our Fall Car Show will return, along with others. The Farmers’ Market again set attendance records. Finally, watch for the construction of the last great piece to the park—a pavilion/ concession-like structure at the Amp. We promise to do everything we can to limit the impact of its construction. The road and utility projects for 2017 are wrapping up, Edgerton Avenue on the eastern side of town most notably. Because of significant federal funding, it has been subject to all sorts of rules and requirements that other City projects are not. Additionally, the construction contract is led and controlled by the State of Wisconsin, the street touches numerous MMSD regulated watersheds, had EXTREMELY bad soils underneath it, and had aging utilities. I applaud our staff and the “boots on the ground” that worked through the steady stream of problems and concerns. We’re working hard to make the project be the success it needs to be. Shifting gears a bit, a shout out goes to the Greenfield and Whitnall School Districts. Taxpayers are blessed to have great leadership and great School Boards overseeing both entities—and that’s important to keep our community strong. Tax season is upon us. While your property tax bill is paid to the City, remember that the City “keeps” about 30 cents of every dollar to pay for everything the City provides— the rest of your tax dollars go to other taxing jurisdictions. I’m proud that Greenfield continues to provide the best cutting edge services at costs at or below other communities, according to the Taxpayers’ Alliance-an independent group that looks at these things. We make decisions and investments based upon what’s in the long-term interest of the City and its citizens. We run the City knowing that every dollar that flows into the City was hard-earned by somebody, and needs to be spent wisely. Citizens expect that. It’s my promise to make sure that happens. Stay warm and have a great holiday season! —Mike

HOLIDAY SCAMS

Since it’s the holidays, the scammers are setting their sights on you to finance their New Year. They are hoping that your finances are tight enough that you would believe you are an instant winner of a contest you never entered and all you have to do is cash the check they sent you and wire it back to them to cover the taxes. Needless to say, it is a bad check and your bank will hold you responsible for cashing it. These notices will come in the mail, e-mail, or text messages and they may even be on letterhead and they will look legitimate.

Do Not Fall For It!

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.

Don’t leave your car running

CRIME PREVENTION

The Greenfield Police Department offers many crime prevention and community outreach services. Dozens of useful links are available at the Police Department’s Community Service Page on the web at: http://www.greenfieldpolice.org/community/community.html Community Service Officers are available to help in forming block watch groups, and attend neighborhood meetings and community events. To contact our Community Service staff call (414) 761-5337.

With the cold weather arriving, people want to stay warm in their vehicle. Some people will warm their cars prior to beginning their journey and others will allow their cars to run when they make a quick stop at the gas station, friend’s house, or shopping center. If you are one of these people, do not be surprised if your car is not there when you need to leave. This is an easy target for car thieves. When you leave your car, turn it off , lock it up, and take your keys with you. Do not leave your car unattended when it is running.

SNOW EMERGENCY

When a Snow Emergency is declared, the City notifies the media outlets in the Milwaukee area. Watch and listen for snow emergency announcements and be aware of the times indicated. During a snow emergency, parking is completely prohibited on major streets and any cars found on these streets are cited and towed. Snow emergency streets include: 27th Street, 35th Street, 43rd Street, 51st Street, 60th Street, 68th Street, 76th Street, 84th Street, 92nd Street, 104th Street, 112th Street, 116th Street, 124th Street, Morgan Avenue, Howard Avenue, Cold Spring Road, Layton Avenue, Edgerton Avenue, Grange Avenue, Ramsey Avenue, College Avenue, Loomis Road, Forest Home Avenue, Beloit Road, and 31st Street between Edgerton Avenue and Grange Avenue.

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.

About SeeClickFix SeeClickFix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to receive information from citizens. This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world — upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities. Today, SeeClickFix has official partnerships with hundreds of cities, engaging hundreds of thousands of citizens in the resolution of millions of issues. SeeClickFix has worked with government partners to develop municipal management tools on top of this citizen network. As SeeClickFix is adopted into the everyday lives of government users, the benefit of the engaged citizen base continues to grow.

Focus On Carbon Monoxide

Greenfield’s Health Priorities

Have You Tested Your Home For Radon?

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Clinic

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas produced when fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, wood, coal, oil, natural gas and charcoal do not have enough oxygen to burn completely. The potential for Carbon Monoxide exposure increases during the fall and winter months as the temperature decreases, and homeowners supplement their home’s heat with the use of fireplaces and portable heaters. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure are headache, fatigue dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, and mental confusion. Continued exposure may lead to more serious health problems, including death. The Greenfield Health Department encourages the use of carbon monoxide detectors in homes. Carbon monoxide detectors function like smoke detectors and sound an alarm if carbon monoxide levels are high enough to cause illness; these detectors are available at most retail and hardware stores. Regular inspections of combustion appliances such as gas appliances, fireplaces, furnaces, water heaters and chimneys will ensure they are working properly and have adequate ventilation. Carbon Monoxide can be very dangerous. Visit www.cdc.gov/co for more information.

Radon gas may be an unwelcome visitor in your home. Radon is an invisible, radioactive, odorless, tasteless, colorless gas produced during the natural decay of uranium in the soil. Radon gas permeates from the soil into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the number one cause among non-smokers. Radon test kits are available within the Health Department at a reduced price of $3.00; this price is significantly better than home improvements stores or online. Testing for radon is easy and takes only minutes of your time. The testing process takes at least 72 hours and the results are sent directly to your home. The Health Department has compiled all radon surveillance data since 2010 to create a map identifying areas in the City at higher risk of radon. This map will be available on the City website in January, and will also be available in the Health Department. For more information on radon, or to obtain a test kit, call the Greenfield Health Department at 329-5275 or visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/radon/index.htm. Radon Information for Wisconsin | Wisconsin Department of Health Services www.dhs.wisconsin.gov Radon, a naturally occurring, odorless radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer.

Greenfield Sheet | Community Newsletter

Through an engaged, collaborative process the Greenfield Health Department and a robust group of community members, key partners, and organizations met to complete and finalize the Community Health Assessment (CHA) in July 2017. This assessment is publicly available and is accessible on our website, or you can request a copy by calling the health department main telephone number. The CHA informs the efforts of the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) for our community over the next 5 years. The three health priorities identified include: 1) Nutrition and Physical Activity, 2) Behavioral Health, and 3) Healthy Aging. With endorsement anticipated in early 2018, the CHIP belongs to the community and is an ongoing effort to live better, longer. This plan is strategically developed to align with Healthy People 2020, Healthiest Wisconsin 2020, and health issues identified by our community. Our hope is that this plan will provide new opportunities to broaden or create community partnerships with the desire to improve the collective health of the community.
