We received 200 responses to the visual preference survey! Thank you to all of the people who completed the survey online and at our storefront space. The results will be very useful when we begin to explore the details of the streetscape design for Main Street.
The Downtown Advisory Group met to further discuss the concepts emerging from the design studio. Five streetscape concepts, primarily focused on possible curb location and parking, were reviewed. Each of these five scenarios will be further evaluated throughout August for their advantages and disadvantages. The five concepts include:
Based on initial review, members of the Downtown Advisory Group preferred Concept C, which consists of primarily angle parking with bump-outs and limited parallel parking. Details will be forthcoming as the project team is adjusting all of the concepts to reflect the group’s comments and collecting additional data on traffic movements.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the design studio!
Please stop by 215 N. Main Street to continue to contribute your ideas. During the next two months, the design team will refine concepts and begin to post more images to this site in late-July and August. Again, thank you for the tremendous feedback as we work towards making Waupaca an even greater destination.
We need to hear from you!
We launched a visual preference survey at the kick-off meeting in May. If you didn't have the chance to attend or complete the survey, then this is your chance to share your thoughts. Complete the survey by June 20th.
Thank you for participating in the kick-off meeting! We look forward to continuing the discussion in June at the Design Studio!
