The state Department of Administration has allocated federal Community Development Block Grant grants totaling $1.75 million to the city of Kewaunee toward redevelopment of the area known as Fisherman’s Point.

“It is rare in funding scenarios to capture 100% funding for a project, yet that is what our city staff did,” Mayor Jason Jelinke said in the news release announcing the grants. “We greatly appreciate their efforts and the Department of Administration and Kewaunee County for their tremendous support.”

The grants are designed to facilitate blight elimination. Fisherman’s Point, a peninsula that juts into the harbor just east of the Main Street bridge in Kewaunee, was identified as a priority for redevelopment in the city’s 2019 Integrated Plan.

Containing both private and city-owned property, the plan cited a “potential for the city to work with the property owner to join the parcels together for increased market possibilities,” the plan said.

Its “location on the waterfront provides redevelopment options of housing, additional commmercial, water-related businesses, and lodging. The access to two marinas provides many possibilities.”

According to the city release, the funds will be used to acquire and remove old buildings. The property at Fisherman’s Point would be raised above flood levels, allowing the land to be restored to its original natural condition.

“These awards represent nearly $2 million in City amenities & services that are being offset with state and federal funds, rather than local tax dollars,” the announcement said. “This funding will soften the industrial look and feel of our harbor area and prepare Kewaunee’s harbor to be competitive in a 21st century economy.”
