Kewaunee residents got a peek of what is possible for its city’s waterfront Thursday when the UW-Extension office and Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation co-facilitated a community meeting and charrettes presentation. Through an online survey, close to 1,000 adults and children weighed in on what they would like to see in future waterfront and downtown plans before the two organizations brought in experts from across the state that took the ideas and put them to paper as a part of a charrettes group. Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jennifer Brown was impressed with what they were able to learn in particular from the over 300 youth surveys.
Brown says the goal moving forward is to give the city a plan that would have a positive impact on the community, but not too big in scope that it would be intimidating.
