October 24, 2008: Mayor Schmitt expressed with great pride at the ground-breaking ceremony for the CityDeck that this day has "finally arrived" after years of planning and searching for funding. Governor Jim Doyle and a host of elected officials attended the event and were recognized for their contributions toward the realization of this project. State funding towards the project was invaluable. The CityDeck should be available for public enjoyment by Labor Day, 2009. It will include the upland area from Walnut to Main and construction of Shopko Landing. See the CityDeck web site for features of this new city park.
