Committee plans could turn Cedar Creek wetlands into nature preserve

The Parks, Grounds, Buildings Committee will hold a public listening session on the Rothschild Outdoor Recreation Plan 2014-2019 at 6 p.m., Feb. 19, in the Board Room of Village Hall, 211 Grand Ave., Rothschild. The village is considering how to develop a nature preserve in the Cedar Creek area and ways to increase its "bike-friendliness."

Cedar Creek wetlands and lowlands in Rothschild could become a nature preserve twice the size of Schmeeckle Reserve in Stevens Point, beginning with a ridge trail and growing to a 720-acre nature area over time.

Rothschild owns about 200 acres where some trails already exist. The village of Weston also has a sewer easement connection on Rothschild-owned lands in Cedar Creek between Rothschild and Weston, where a trail could be constructed.

To build on the Wausau region's recent push to add more bike routes, the village also would like to become more bicycle friendly in two ways: parking, possibly requiring bicycle parking at every employer just as auto parking spots are required; and facilities, possibly a "pump track" or bicycle skills course and developing bike paths and routes to reach it.

A summary document and the complete draft Rothschild Outdoor Recreation Plan 2014-2019 are available online at www.ncwrpc.org/marathon/rothschild/orp.html/.
