Radomski Luke 2014Greetings,

I would like to begin by thanking Commodore Artka for appointing me Grounds Committee Chair.  I am very excited by the opportunity and look forward to working with the Committee and the Membership on some very important topics that will impact SSYC in both the short and long term.

As many of you know Milwaukee County has been studying causes and solutions for ways to reduce the pollution levels of at South Shore Beach for many years.  In that vein, the Milwaukee County Board passed the following Amendment to the 2014 County Budget.

WP298- South Shore Boat Launch Parking Lot
WP298: South Shore Boat Launch Parking Lot Conceptual Plan

An appropriation of $84,000 is budgeted to begin the conceptual planning phase for replacement of the parking lot at South Shore Beach. This project will be funded by $84,000 in property tax levy.

The South Shore Yacht Club and boat launch share the same expansive parking area with the beach, which is sloped toward the lake and drained exclusively by overland runoff. This project will be phased into a two year timeline; phase one will include conceptual planning of the lot in 2014, and phase two will complete the construction of the lot in 2015. This project will incorporate new storm water best management practices in the construction of the lot.

This project was included in the 2013 Capital Improvement Committee’s (CIC) recommendations as in need of improvements for 2014. In 2012, the Milwaukee County Parks Department partnered with MMSD to retain the services of W.F. Baird & Associates to conduct a study to determine the major water quality issues at South Shore Beach. The report from Baird concluded that the condition of the parking lot was identified as a main source of the water quality issues.

Milwaukee County has expressed to us that they will be looking into various other funding opportunities for this project.  I look forward to providing updates on this topic and its impact on SSYC in the near future.  

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me at with any questions or concerns you may have.
