• Appleton Comprehensive Plan Update

    Below is a City of Appleton Comprehensive Plan Update from the City of Appleton.

    Over the past several weeks, there have been numerous opportunities for community members to provide input regarding the update to the City of Appleton’s Comprehensive Plan.

    Out of these conversations and online feedback several themes have emerged:
    • Opportunity to connect and expand the bike/walking paths throughout the city.
    • A desire for a more walkable community, including concern over safety.
    • The revitalization of commercial corridors such as Wisconsin Avenue.
    • Downtown mixed-used facilities.
    • Providing more housing options and maintaining housing affordability.
