Bring Peace & Quiet To Our Village

Did you know that The Village of Pewaukee is the ONLY Lake Country community that does not enjoy the quality of life that railroad quiet zones provide?
Hartland, Oconomowoc and other Lake Country communities have the SAME trains passing through them. However, their residents don’t suffer the ear-splitting train whistles. Their governing bodies have implemented railroad “Quiet Crossings”
It’s well known in the medical literature that noise contributes to hypertension, ischemic heart disease, sleep disturbance and other health problems.
Noise also reduces property values because it reduces quality of life.
There is NO cost to the Village and it’s residents of Quiet Crossings. The Village has already received a grant for the installation. The Board simply needs to take action on them. Which it has not and is not doing.
Lastly, a claim of “public safety” has been used by a minority for many years to ensure Pewaukee is the LAST major Lake Country community without “quiet crossings”. Why have the other communities with quiet crossings along this same railroad line not had a “public safety” problem??
Because there is no public safety problem with Quiet Crossings. That’s why thousands of other communities nation-wide have them.
Pewaukee residents now deserve to have them, too.
Please let the Village Board know that you support bringing peace and quiet to life in the Village with Quiet Crossings.
Sign the petition to let them know you support “Peace & Quiet For Our Village”.
