If you dig deep enough, you will find it! (Hint, it is on page 22)

Although many residents consider the issue of whether the city’s 2020 Master Plan is a binding document or not to be very important, there has been virtually no press about it. Last week’s Oct. 6th Brookfield News did carry an article about it, but you really had to hunt for it. So, to help you out, it is located on page 22--after the classified ads. (I had to look through the paper 3 times to find it.) So far, it has not been posted on .

If you have cable TV, you can view the council meeting on City Cable channel 25. The meetings are televised at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Pay close attention to how some of the aldermen say the plan is just a general guide. Alderman Gary Mahkorn (also a member of the Plan Commission) “said he sees the Master Plan as more of a guideline”. At times, their backpedaling reminded me of the movie, The Pirates of the Caribbean, where the pirates justified breaking the Pirate’s Code by chalking it up to, Them’s just guidelines. Yet Alderman Blackburn and Alderman Jerry Mellone are able to cite numerous specifics in the Master Plan concerning Calhoun Road’s width. See what you think.
