The above link is for an OneDrive folder to place any larger documents or files that pertain to your community’s Park and Open Space plan. Because files are sometimes too large for e-mail systems and some systems filter out attachments, we encourage you to upload your files here.

If you click on the link, a browser window should open to the folder. Simply drag the files from your organization onto the browser window and let it upload.

If you are not the keeper of the data or documents, please feel free to forward this link to the person in your organization that is.

If you have multiple files for your community, please zip your files all together in one .zip file if you can. The file name should have your specific Community’s name at the front, like “City_of_Jonesville_xxxxx.zip”. This will ensure we know where the data is coming from.

We are pleased to offer this draft plan for review, and look forward to receiving your information and feedback. Please direct questions and comments to Jason Wilke at the Waukesha County Department of Parks and Land Use, at (262) 548-7806.
