Wingra Path crossing at Fish Hatchery
We added the results of the July 22 meeting with the city's Ped/Bike/Motor Vehicle Commission meeting, and an interview that WORT did two days later. This is our first experience with putting audio on the web; it's occupying the vast majority of our web space, so will be removed at some point in the future.

These can be found from the Bay Creek home page, or go straight to http://www.geocities.com/bay_creek/wingra-crossing.html.

Those who didnít attend (and those who attended and have since had new ideas or suggestions) can make comments or suggestions (by April 15th to ensure inclusion).

These are under the Publications section, under "News, Reports, and Meeting Minutes".

New website: Safe Lawns, Clean Lakes
The Safe Lawns, Clean Lakes initiative is organized by a group of neighbors who are concerned about the use and effects of lawn chemicals in the Bay Creek neighborhood.

The brand new Safe Lawns, Clean Lakes website (a part of the Bay Creek website) is filled with information about safe lawn care (including a great problem/solution weed section), health issues, concerns about the environment, makeup of lawn chemicals, and neighborhood information (e.g. parks in Bay Creek the city is treating).

It's linked to from the Programs section of the Bay Creek website, or go straight to it at http://www.geocities.com/bay_creek/safelawns. (We removed the section in the "Sites to Visit" of the same name.) Check it out!

Thanks to neighborhood resident Annette Czarnecki for creating this comprehensive resource!

Early website history
We didn't save old announcements before this time, but the Bay Creek Plant/Seed Exchange program was the first thing on the Bay Creek web site released June 1, 1998. This was followed quickly by the front page, a simple display-only Calendar, the Contacts section, and a single list of Sites to Visit.

In the ensuing months appeared the creek navigation bar, the Bay Creek Neighborhood Plan, many Calendar enhancements, and many more Sites to Visit, with five sections.

Printer-friendly format.
