Community surveys have shown that Muskego citizens prefer that the City retain its rural character and open spaces, and protect its natural resources. To achieve this end, the Common Council took action in 2000 to develop the City of Muskego Conservation Plan as a component of the 2010 Comprehensive Plan. This conservation plan evaluated the remaining natural resource base and scenic rural areas and proposed ways to preserve them. This plan has been updated over the years and is now presented with parks planning in the City of Muskego Parks and Conservation Plan 2017-2021.
Administration of the Conservation Program
The Parks & Conservation Committee provides recommendations to the Common Council on matters concerning conservation and urban forestry. Conservation site management is executed by the Conservation Coordinator, a half-time Conservation Technician, and volunteer groups and individuals.
