Public & Stakeholder Involvement

The City of Red Wing and the Project Team understand that a publicly acceptable plan is essential to the overall success of the Old West Main & Upper Harbor Renewal Project. We are committed to an approach that has identified and involved stakeholders early in the decision-making process. We are here to listen to and understands concerns, and inform and maintain communication with project partners and stakeholders. Property owners and businesses have individual perspectives on how this area should function and feel. Sharing their ideas, vetting their issues, and helping them understand why this project needs to happen are fundamental aspects of the project.

Multiple opportunities for public involvement will be provided throughout the project process.
