Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death. #fireworks

Lifeguards will be at Atwater Beach starting Saturday, June 20. They will be present at the beach every day from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Their last day at the beach will be Sunday, August 16.

The Village wants to be responsible in managing the public beach at Atwater so that community members are safe utilizing the public space. One significant change for Atwater Beach this year due to concerns of COVID-19 is that there will be a maximum capacity of 300. This changed from 150 to 300 due to the North Shore entering Phase C guidelines. Depending on beach size and conditions, the maximum capacity number is subject to change. During peak hours, Coastline Services will have a staff person working at the gate at the top of the bluff reminding users of the beach rules and capacity limit. Signs will also be posted explaining the rules. We please ask all users to be respectful of the staff working the beach and implementing this new measure to protect all community members. In addition, we please ask users to monitor your time at the beach if it is at capacity and perhaps leave sooner than normal so that others can enjoy the beach, too.

A new ordinance enforces no smoking on Village parkland, which includes Atwater Beach. Other rules consist of no dogs, no fires or grills, and no glass. While lifeguards will be actively enforcing beach rules, their primary focus will be monitoring the water to assure all visitors are safe. The Village encourages everyone to stay on the public beach where there are trained lifeguards to keep all community members safe.

If you have questions, contact Eric Gietzen at [email protected]. Please be safe this summer and enjoy Shorewood's public beach!

Village of Shorewood, Wisconsin

The Village of Shorewood is issuing a mandatory curfew for tonight starting at 9 p.m. (June 1, 2020) until 5:30 a.m. (June 2, 2020). Based on last night's events and information provided to the Village, there is a chance for more protests to occur in Shorewood and anticipate for them to be peaceful. The curfew is needed to help protect community members from potential civil unrest events and serves as a precautionary measure. All businesses that are open to the public should remain closed during the curfew time frame. We encourage people to continue following the North Shore Health Department guidelines at all times.

We want to share with you the situation report (http://www.villageofshorewood.org/DocumentCenter/View/8099/Situation-Report-as-of-Monday-6-1-2020) that provides details on the events from the night of May 31, 2020. Originally, the route for protesters allowed them to freely march into Shorewood on Oakland Ave. up to Capitol Dr. However, the group suddenly diverted and rerouted themselves eastbound on Edgewood Ave. Officers quickly redeployed their positions to make Edgewood Ave. a safe route for the group to proceed. The Village thanks the hundreds men and women who demonstrated peacefully and safely. The Village thanks the police officers for their service last night providing the protesters a safe place to express their freedom of speech.

Moving forward, the Village will make a determination if a curfew is needed by 5:00 p.m. so that members of the public have time to plan accordingly. Community members can learn about daily curfews by visiting the Village's website (scroll down to News and Events on main page) or visiting the Village's page. Any questions about the curfew should contact Village Manager Rebecca Ewald at 414-847-2701 or via email at [email protected]. For reference, Wisconsin State Statute 323-14(4)(b) outlines the Chief elected official's authority to act in time of an emergency. Village Code 115-3(B)(1) relays the Village President's authority on curfews in consultation with the Village Manager or Police Chief in the absence of the Village Manager.
