City planners asking for more input on Highway 53 corridor plan

Planners present first drafts of plan

City Asks for More Highway 53 Input

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The city of La Crosse is giving residents more input on a major development project on the north side.

City planners are once again holding public information and feedback workshops to talk about plans for the Highway 53 corridor master plan.

They first held a public input workshop last November, taking suggestions from members of the community for what they wanted to see developed in the area.

They then took those ideas and worked them into a draft of a proposed plan, which they presented at another meeting Thursday night. From there, they'll continue tweaking the plans based on the feedback they continue to get.

"In the end, you're hoping that everybody can look at this plan and be, 'there's aspects of this that were a result of my input, my thinking,'" said senior planner Tim Acklin. "Really that's what we want to do, so that there's support of this, you want people to take ownership of this plan."

There will be an open house for the first drafts of the project and an opportunity to give additional input. The event will be held at the Black River Beach House from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
