Riverfront Redevelopment

A Riverfront Redevelopment Charrette was held June 9-11, 2017, in Stoughton as the first step in designing and planning for the use of about 10 acres in and around the old MilFab Buildings across from Mandt Park. A charrette is an intensive planning session where citizens, designers, and stakeholders collaborate on a vision for a development. A charrette is a forum for ideas and offers the unique advantage of giving immediate feedback to the designers. More importantly, it allows everyone who participates to be a mutual author of the plan.

The event included sessions on functional diagramming, topography, open space, sheds on the site, building design, mix of uses, connections, circulation, energy, brownfield, soil, and storm water. Virtual site tours and a community potluck supplemented the presentations and discussions.

A follow-up is available on the ConnectStoughton website:

  • Wisconsin can do better than this

    by Jeffrey Leverich, April 27, 2017

    One thing the majority of Wisconsin’s legislators can do well is win elections. But that doesn’t mean they represent the people’s interests. Since the Citizens United decision on campaign funding, untold amounts of money have flooded our state. Few offices, from Supreme Court justices to rural assembly seats, remain untouched. Undisclosed levels of funding, and the interests behind it, are undermining fundamental principles necessary for a healthy democratic society.   MORE . . .
