Public Input Wanted for Downtown Manitowoc's Master Plan
 

Did you miss the October 11 kickoff event at the Capitol Civic Centre? You can still provide feedback online!

The City of Manitowoc needs your input to create a new Downtown Master Plan - a roadmap for the future development and improvement of the downtown.  If you or anyone you know was not able to participate in the kickoff event at the Capitol Civic Center, just go to the Downtown Master Plan project website, and you can access the presentation and answer the same questions that we discussed that night.
  • What is great about the downtown? What's missing?
  • What important places should be preserved? Changed?
  • What transportation barriers do you experience?
  • What is the role of the downtown, and how should that change?
On the web page, click on "Resources" to see the presentation, and click on "Participate" to provide your input.
 
As always, please feel free to forward this along to anyone in the community that may not have received this message.  Watch for upcoming details on the next community event, which will be held in December.
