What is Lake Geneva Missing?

Part of Hillmoor would be an excellent location for a park-and-ride, with continuous shuttle service downtown on weekends. You could charge for parking by the day to pay for the shuttle.

I do think that the former Hillmoor Golf Course should become a park and not the eyesore it is slowly becoming. I do not think that we need a sports complex or a Qdoba etc..If you want Lake Geneva to look like every town in Illinois, then stay in Illinois.

How about a 2 story sports complex on the site of the old Hillmoor golf Course. Keep the outdoor range and it could house indoor ice rink for public skating and Support High School and College team games, Indoor Archery shop with indoor range also enough room outdoors for 3D Range, a Roller rink and a few shops on the first level. 2nd level could house various Sports stores and a few eateries. Plus enough Parking for Downtown.

The United States Air Force Academy. Sixty years ago in June, 1954 a small but vocal group led by Mr. Curtis McKay led lengthy protests against the Secretary of the Air Force, who was to select the site for the future new military academy. Secretary Talbott was so angered by the anti-Lake Geneva protestors, that Lake Geneva, although the number one preferred location for the Academy, was removed from the top 3 list, due to the protest groups actions. Instead the Air Force chose Colorado Springs, CO. Today, the Air Force Academy is home to 4,000 Cadets, and it brings almost a billion dollars a year in federal funding and other spending into the local Colorado Springs economy. It all could have been in Lake Geneva...probably the worst mistake in the history of the community. That's what Lake Geneva is missing! It all went down 60 years ago in June.

A water taxi. It would be great if locals and summer tourists could catch a water taxi to Pier 290 in Williams Bay or Chucks and Gordys in Fontana for lunch or dinner. Especially for those staying at the downtown LG resorts that would rather explore by foot than drive around the lake. Same for locals, it's always great to get on the lake and not worry about driving while you imbibe!

Also, a Chipotle or Qdoba restaurant. That would be awesome.

According to my 13 year old, Lake Geneva needs a Dunkin Donut shop...I happen to agree, I don't like Krispy Kremes. Although smoothies, farm-to-table dining, bookstores and performing art centers would be amazing, maybe it's a little bit easier to get a donut shop. We also need a stop light by the Board Shop.

Too many things to count. For a start, how about free REAL summer school to help with kids that need further academic enrichment. And DON'T charge us a horrid amount. A Dog park. NOT a Trader Joe's. A weekend Farmer's Market. Dunkin Donuts. And since we are at it, resident only parking areas? Sure, I have a sticker, but good luck finding a darn spot.

A place to get a fresh juice or smoothie. Preferably not a franchise, but a locally owned organic spot.
