Marquette master plan workshop set

MARQUETTE — The city of Marquette will host a Master Plan workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. June 14 at Lakeview Arena, 401 E. Fair Ave., to gather the community’s ideas related to potential redevelopment sites.

The sites are: the Marquette Mall, 2025 U.S. 41; the area around Tadych’s Marketplace; the Washington Street Corridor from U.S. 41 to Third Street; the area west of Lakeshore Boulevard from East Ridge Street to East Fair Avenue; and the south Marquette commercial area along U..S. 41 from Shiras Drive to Genesee Street.

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”, said 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, visit www.marquettemasterplan.org.
