Discussion topics will include housing, parks, transportation, development and more. We need your help to ensure that the goals and priorities of the comprehensive plan are aligned with those of the community. This is your neighborhood, make your voice heard.

The Department of City Development along with Alderman Russell Stamper, II and our community partners at the Dominican Center, Metcalfe Park Community Bridges, and Walnut Way are in the process of developing a new comprehensive plan for the neighborhoods surrounding Fond Du Lac and North Avenues. The new plan will build on recent local planning efforts to guide development in the area for the next 10-20 years. Make sure to sign up for E-Notify and select the Fond Du Lac and North Plan category to receive information about the plan update and opportunities to participate in the process.


Community Engagement Partners

In order to facilitate better community engagement throughout the planing process, the Department of City development has contracted with community based organizations working in various  neighborhoods within the plan area. These organizations will partner with the City to conduct surveys, facilitate public meetings and get the word out about opportunities to participate in the planning process.
