Five drawings of concept ideas for the city of Kewaunee waterfront have been released after a University of Wisconsin-Extension design team visited the city during the month of August.

Note: A charrette is defined at merriam-webster.com as “the intense final effort by architectural students to complete their solutions to a given architectural problem in an allotted time.”

The office of Mayor Sandi Christman issued this press release:

The City of Kewaunee Harbor Master Plan Taskforce has been working to pick up where the City of Kewaunee Waterfront Plan left off and continue the planning for the Harbor and Downtown Area. The Harbor Master Plan provides further planning for the City Campground, the Public Beach/City Park, and the Ahnapee/River Landing sites. The Plan will also provide a basis for how the City can connect or tie the harbor front sites together, building a more cohesive Harbor and Downtown Area.

The UW-Extension Design Charrettes Team was in Kewaunee during the month of August to assist with the final aspects of the Harbor Master Plan. The Team assisted the Harbor Master Plan Taskforce in building a comprehensive charrettes portfolio for the Harbor and Downtown Areas. The City now has design charrettes for three additional areas, the City Campground, the Public beach/City Park, and the Ahnapee Landing sites.

In May 2019, the Harbor Master Plan Taskforce held two public input sessions and administered a survey to residents and visitors. The feedback that was obtained via the input sessions and survey was used to guide the development of the charrettes. There is already a strong interest by various groups and individuals to champion some of the projects identified through this process.

The design charrettes will be mounted in the City Hall Council Chambers for all to come and view. Pictures of the design charrettes can be found below.
