PLAN UPDATE UNDERWAY

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 Workshops

 

Community Workshop #1

The first community workshop for the Ford Du Lac and North Area Comprehensive Plan update was held on September 17, 2019 at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society. Over 140 community members attended the meeting. After a brief presentation, participants broke up into small groups by neighborhood to have a facilitated discussion with their neighbors regarding the area's strengths, opportunities, aspirations and results (SWOT). These discussions allowed the community to begin building a vision for the area, and helped the  planning team define the goals and priorities that the plan must address.

Community Workshop #2

The second community workshop was held in an open house format over three separate sessions. The first two sessions were held on Wednesday February 19, 2020 at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society. One session was in the daytime and the other session was held in the evening in order to accommodate a variety of schedules. The third session was held the evening of Thursday February 27, 2020 at St Anne Center for Intergenerational Care-Bucyrus Campus. In total, over 100 people attended the open houses. At each session There were four stations related to transportation, parks and public space, housing and commercial corridors. Participants were encouraged to visit each station to review materials and provide their input regarding the proposed goals for each topic.

Community Workshop #3

The third community workshop will be held in the summer of 2020.

Community Workshop #4

The fourth community workshop will be held in the Fall of 2020.
