On August 5, 2019 Peter Fletcher began as Director as the LaCrosse/ LaCrescent Metropolitan Planning Organization.  Fletcher replaces Tom Faella who retired December 31, 2018.

LaCrosse is an important stop for Amtrak and the State of Wisconsin with over 25,000 on/offs for Fiscal Year 2018, the last year data is available.  LaCrosse County and the MPO also contributed $30,000 in the early stages of the TCMC Environmental Impact Studies, declaring their vote for another train.

Fletcher brings to the LaCrosse area a strong resume.  His Master’s Degree in Urban Planning from University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee in 1993 is just a start.  He was the Planning Director for Trempealeau County (WI) from 1993-97 and the Senior Planner for the Mississippi River Regional Planning Commission from 2004-2019.
