Menasha could see changes coming with Downtown Vision Plan

Menasha, Wis. (WFRV) - Residents of Menasha are being asked to weigh in on plans to make changes to the downtown district.  On Tuesday, two open houses were held to let the public see how the city's Vision Plan could soon become reality.

"I'm very interested in the future of Menasha," said Marshall Spencer, a resident who attended the open house this afternoon.

He says he wants the city to become a destination for more visitors.

"The more people we can attract to Menasha, the better it is for Menasha from an economics standpoint," said Spencer.

The open house gave the community an opportunity to chime in and give their ideas for land use in the future.

The community development director for the city, David Buck, says the budget includes $30,000 for analysis and planning of the downtown, taking a look at elements such as redevelopment sites, new housing, public green spaces, trail usage, and waterfront plans.

"Some of those priorities we've been hearing is greater connection to the waterfront for the public," said Buck.

That's what the open house is all about, sharing with the community to make their plans come to life.

"This is the community's downtown," said Buck. "It's the community's plan."
