The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) looks at the planning and budgeting aspects for all public improvements within the Village. This includes alleys, buildings/grounds, CDBG projects, equipment, parking lots, parks, sanitary sewer, sidewalks, streets, street lights, storm sewer, and water mains. Typically, these projects are funded through a combination of borrowed money and a variety of other funding sources. Each project looks at different levels of work to continually keep the Villages infrastructure in good condition.
Drainage Review Application - Application (PDF)
A Drainage Review is required for any new homes, home additions, or as prescribed by the Village Engineer for a project.
The Village is responsible for providing and maintaining all of the street signs throughout our network of roadways and parking lots. Please call (414-962-6690) or email the Village Engineer for more information regarding signage.
Information Regarding Stop Sign Requests
- Write a letter or email to the Village Engineer. Be specific on why you think a stop sign would help at the requested intersection.
- The Village Engineer will review the crash map to determine if there is a frequency of crashes. The Village Engineer will also notify the Police Department to get their input on safety at the requested intersection.
- If several crashes have occurred at the intersection, then the Engineering Department will make field observations and obtain accident reports to verify the types of crashes that occurred.
- If the crash data indicates that a stop sign may reduce the frequency, then the Engineering Department will conduct a study of the criteria listed above to make a recommendation to the Village Board.
- The Village Board will make the final decision regarding the request.
Stop Sign Purpose
The purpose of a stop sign is to reduce the frequency of crashes at an intersection that can be preventable by such a device. In order to determine whether a stop sign will actually lower the crash incidents the following criteria are reviewed:
- Three-year accident history
- Vehicular and pedestrian conflicts (more than 100 pedestrians per hour for an 8 hour period)
- Vehicular volume or concentrated traffic
