Community Planning Overview:

De Pere is a vibrant community within the Green Bay Metro Area. While much of the industry that was central to the community's early development is now gone, De Pere still maintains a strong link to the Fox River and natural environment. Yet, the river also forms a divide in the community, separating its downtown into two separate and unique districts. On the eastern banks of the river, downtown is a vibrant center for retail, entertainment and commerce. On the western banks of the river, downtown is dominated by offices, St. Norbert College, and small retail establishments. The Downtown Master Plan area, the focus of this document, unites the city geographically, and through a program of strategic policy and investment to create a unique community commons within the Green Bay Metropolitan Area.
