With so much changing in the world these days, Three Lakes says now is the perfect time to focus on what that change should be.

Forward Three Lakes is trying to form an idea for what the future of Three Lake looks like.

Jim Morley is the Three Lakes Community Foundation Board Chair. He said the town has been looking for ways to make it stronger and more vibrant for a while, but it’s become of even more importance recently.

“When in early 2019 we lost the Oneida Village Inn to fire and also the Three Lakes Diner, that sent us a real message  about needing to focus on the economic development of our town,” said Morley.

Forward Three Lakes working with the University of Wisconsin- Extension Design Wisconsin Team to collect community input.

It recently wrapped up community surveys.

Now, it’s holding focus groups all this week to discuss some of the unifying topics that came out of the surveys.

“It’s pulling together all the information they’ve been receiving and in these five focus groups, people will be able to share their opinions about the town today and what they’d like to see going forward,” said Morley.

There are five different focus groups.

They’re looking at Downtown Development, Housing, Natural Environment, Leadership and Community Moving Forward, and Growth and Development.

You can participate in some or all of them.

They’re all taking place via Zoom now through Saturday.

You can visit Forward Three Lakes website to sign up.
