    PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    The Village of Pleasant Prairie hired Todd Streeter, principal, Community Collaboration, to assist with the process of developing the framework for the future development of Village Green Center downtown development that launched in January. 

    The Village invited residents of all ages and backgrounds, business owners, commercial property owners, and community organizations to participate in developing new ideas and concepts for the development of approximately 180 acres of land known as Village Green Center, a mixed-use development consisting of commercial, residential, and institutional land use.

    Last year, the Village purchased 72 acres of land at Springbrook Road (consisting of five parcels) for $3.7 million. Previous efforts to develop the land were stalled due to poor market conditions and private developer ownership. 

    The new citizen committee called Designing Downtown Pleasant Prairie was formed to develop a wide variety of redevelopment recommendations including housing options, business development, park and recreation amenities, and public and civic facilities. Other areas of focus include environment-friendly solutions, project marketing, and the downtown’s aesthetics, character, branding, and themes.

    This engagement process was designed to let the community drive all aspects of the project’s concept development allowing interested citizens to literally create a wide range of ideas and concepts that will directly influence ongoing development activities undertaken by the Village.
