HARTFORD - The Department of Natural Resources State Parks and Trails staff will host a public meeting on the Pike Lake Master Plan project on Wednesday, June 24, 2009, at the Hartford Town Hall, 3360 CTH K, located one-half mile south of Hwy. 60. The meeting is an open-house format, and the public is invited to stop in anytime between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. to learn about the master planning process, and to provide input on the proposed vision statement and goals for the future management and development of the forest.

The 688-acre Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest opened in 1971. A 1974 development plan outlined proposed facility development at the forest, and an updated 1986 plan proposed new facilities for the beach and picnic areas.

The draft master plan will be available for public review and comment in late summer. More information is available on the Web site at Property Master Planning or by contacting Therese Gripentrog, Landscape Architect, 2300 North Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr., Milwaukee, WI 53212; 414-263-8669,; or Terry Jensen, Forest Superintendent, Pike Lake Unit, 3544 Kettle Moraine Road, Hartford, WI 53027, 262-670-3403,
