MUKWONAGO — The
Downtown Strategic Plan Steering Committee is offering a survey to
Mukwonago residents, business owners and tourists to gauge their
interests and thoughts on the revitalization of the village’s
downtown, according to Village Administrator John Weidl.
The mission of
the DSPSC is to “Make the downtown a pedestrian-friendly destination
centered on historic preservation, business development and cultural
and recreational opportunities,” according to the survey.
The goal is to
give residents a chance to provide feedback on the committee’s
mission statement, the importance of downtown revitalization and the
potential ways of funding the latter, said Weidl “The survey is a
snapshot in time of the DSPSC’s progress and I wanted to take a
brief step back to see if we are on the right track,” said Weidl. “I
believe we are.”
questionnaire, for example, asks residents to rank the importance of
topics on the mission statement or how likely residents are to
support a tax increase to fund downtown revitalization.
Approximately 430 people have responded to the survey so far.
“I think it’s
clear that there are many stakeholders and residents that are very
interested and passionate about downtown revitalization,” said Weidl.
He said he hopes the survey raises awareness that downtown
revitalization is being discussed. He said the DSPSC values
residents’ input and the committee wants people to get involved at a
level that works for them.
Weidl said the
DSPSC intends to take the survey results into consideration when
making recommendations to the Village Board. The survey will be
closed after the first week of December and the DSPSC will present
the results at the committee’s meeting on Dec. 14.
