Lakefront Planning Charrette a Success!
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
On July 10, 11 & 12th, the City sponsored a Planning Charrette which engaged 50 full time participants in the process of envisioning a new lakefront. An additional 25 people were involved in focus groups. The Charrette volunteers were divided into three teams, each of whom emerged from the sessions with a distinct conceptual plan for Whiting Park and the surrounding areas. These conceptual plans will be presented during Pierogi Fest®. They will be available for review at the Fest’s Welcome Booth, at City Hall and on this website. We will seek public input on the concepts throughout the month of August. This input will be used to determine the elements of a final plan, scheduled to be presented in October. Throughout the late fall and winter, costs and funding sources relating to the plan will be identified and a groundbreaking on initial phases is anticipated in 2009. Prior to this work, infrastructure components (water, sewage, gas and electrical) will be installed in Whiting Park. This work is slated for late fall or early spring on a timeline instituted by the Army Corps of Engineers.
