Mayor Jim Schmitt and Green Bay city officials would like to invite interested community members to attend the second of three public meetings for the Velp Avenue Areawide Plan. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, from 6-8 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, located at 341 Wilson Avenue.
This area, which runs along Velp Avenue, is bounded by Military Avenue on the west and Atkinson Drive on the east. The area was historically developed in a mixture of commercial, residential and industrial uses. The City will use this Areawide Plan to guide development in this area.
The kick-off meeting, held August 24, 2016, introduced the community to the planning process, outlined the historical character of the area, conducted exercises to gather public opinion and identified various ways that interested stakeholders can become involved. The meeting will begin with a formal presentation followed by open discussions and exercises to gather public opinion. There will also be opportunities for attendees to provide feedback on the direction and themes of the proposed planning process.
