City Master Plan Community Workshop on June 14

The City of Marquette is hosting a Master Plan workshop 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 Lakeshore 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 workshop will be held at Lakeview Arena (401 E. Fair Avenue) on June 14 from 6-8 p.m.

The City’s consultant team is requesting that interested individuals register for the workshop so that the team can ensure adequate space and supplies at the event. RSVP for the workshop by visiting the project website at www.marquettemasterplan.org.

All registered participants will receive a pre-workshop 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.” 

This is one of multiple community engagement activities to inform the City of Marquette Master Plan project.  To learn more about the master plan, and to sign up for project updates, please visit www.marquettemasterplan.org
