The City of Marquette is hosting two Master Plan workshops to gather the community’s ideas related to these potential redevelopment sites: the Marquette Mall (2025 US Hwy 41), the area around Tadych’s Marketplace, the Washington Street Corridor from US-41 to 3rd Street, the area west of Lake Shore Boulevard from E. Ridge Street to E. Fair Avenue, and the South Marquette commercial area along US-41 from Shiras Drive to Genesee Street.
The workshops will be held at Lakeview Arena (401 E. Fair Avenue) on June 14 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and June 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The June 15 morning workshop is new and was added by the City, due to community interest in this topic.
The City’s consultant team is requesting that interested individuals register for the workshops so that the team can ensure adequate space and supplies at the event. The June 14 workshop is nearly full, so the City encourages community members to register for the June 15 workshop that was recently added. RSVP for the workshops by visiting the project website at www.marquettemasterplan.org.
All registered participants will receive a pre-meeting packet with more details about each potential redevelopment site and some questions to get folks thinking about what is possible at each location.
“These redevelopment sites were identified as a result of the public input and their future success is critical to the fabric of our community,” says Dennis Stachewicz, Director of Community Development. “We look forward to exploring with workshop participants their vision for these sites and how they could change and connect to surrounding areas of our city.”
