Welcome to Muskego, a city of natural beauty, lakes, parks, recreation, trails, as well as business and industry. Although our population of more than 24,000 qualifies as a large city, it is the people and topography that makes Muskego feel like a small community. It is also a city where the people enjoy coming together socially and philanthropically.
We are redefining our main street, Janesville Road, through reconstruction in 2012 and 2013. Attention to quality beautification, traffic claiming landscape and appointments, sidewalks, incentives for redevelopment, while incorporating a sense of place for people to gather, will supply the transformation. Muskego’s original and historic downtown, Pioneer Drive, an offshoot of Janesville Road, is also a redevelopment district. The city’s commitment is strong in redefining our main street to benefit our local economy and foster community pride.
We also take great pride in our natural resources, including three lakes: Little Muskego, Big Muskego/Bass Bay and Denoon. The city of Muskego provides a quality environment in which industrial, commercial, residential and recreational uses can successfully coexist in an attractive setting. This is a place for active people who love the outdoors. Thirteen beautiful parks offer 327 acres of recreational space. Muskego also boasts 31 miles of recreational trails that link the city to a system of safe and functional off-street trails. In the winter, groomed snowmobile trails keep the city connected. Muskego has more than 1,000 acres of publicly conserved land, including the 153-acre Engel Conservation Area.
Muskego offers quality city services, an excellent school system and close proximity to major metropolitan centers, such as Milwaukee and Chicago. The city has experienced significant change and growth over the past 20 years and anticipates additional corporate and business development in the future. The city prides itself with having one of the lowest tax rates in Waukesha County and surrounding areas.
Once again, a warm welcome to you, I encourage you to discover the many things Muskego has to offer. Please feel free to visit city hall, write, email or visit the city’s website at ww.ci.muskego.wi.us for further information.
Kathy Chiaverotti, Mayor
