Downtown Waupaca is re-emerging as a destination for new businesses, residents, and tourists and is in need of a strategy that provides a clear and achievable vision to energize future investment that is grounded in local opportunities and realities. This continued planning and economic development effort is a follow-up to a yearlong “visioning” process and strategy led by the City and East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (ECWRPC) in addition to the City’s Strategic Plan for Economic Development. There is strong interest and commitment within the community and among the downtown business owners for the creation of a redevelopment plan and most importantly the reconstruction of Main Street tentatively scheduled for 2018-2019. A component of this planning effort is the development of Main Street concepts to assist the City with budgets and cost estimates for the future. In tandem with this project, the city is commissioning a citywide market study. The sole objective of the plan is make Waupaca an ever better place to live, work, and play.
Thank you in advance for participating in this important planning process. THIS IS YOUR PLAN.
