The Village of Hortonville is a vibrant community of 2,711 residents (2010 population census) located in southwestern Outagamie County, Wisconsin, an area known as the Fox Valley.  The Village is located at the intersection of State Highway 15 and County Highway M, 10 miles northwest of the City of Appleton.  Approximately 1 million people live and work within a 50 miles radius of the Village.  Green Bay is 43 miles to the northeast, Oshkosh 24 miles to the south and Fond du Lac 50 miles to the southeast.  The Village is the site of the only lake in the county – the 75 acre Black Otter Lake.

 

DAM REPLACEMENT PROJECT DETOUR

The bridge on S. Nash St. is closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic on Monday, April 27th, and will remain closed during the Black Otter Lake Dam replacement project.

 Please click here to see the detour routes.

Businesses on S. Nash St. will be accessible throughout the duration of the construction project.  Bank Mutual, Brick's Hardware, Donaldson's Gourmet and Gift, and the Black Otter Supper Club can be accessed by using either S. Mill St. (at W. Main St.) from the north or S. Nash St. (at Nye St.) from the south.  The south parking lot behind the businesses on W. Main St. will remain accessible.

 

BLACK OTTER LAKE DAM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

Replacement of the Black Otter Lake spillway commenced in May of 2015.

Excavation of the spillway has now resumed.  We expect an additional week of soil stabilization efforts before we begin construction of the dam itself.

The project is ecpected to be completed sometime in October.

The level of Black Otter Lake will be lower during the dam replacement project.

The project permit allows for a miximum drawdown of 4-feet from normal water levels during construction, satisfying the Village's goal of protecting and sustaining the lake's fish population.  This WDNR mandated project is expected to be completed later in early fall, and will be partially funded through grant monies recieved from the State.  If you have any questions, contact the Department of Public Works at 779-6011.

 WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE TREES?

The Village of Hortonville lost a great number of trees along Main Street, in our parks, and at many private residences during the storm on August 7, 2013.  The Village's Tree Board is currently working with tree experts to develop a plan for the replanting of our urban forest and the re-beautification of our home town.  The tree replacement program was started in the spring of 2014.  We would like to remind everyone about the Memorial Tree Program.  Please contact the Administration office at 779-6011 for more information.
