KAUKAUNA — Members of the Kaukauna city council will have its first look at bids for several downtown reconstruction projects when the proposals are unsealed Monday, June 19, 2017 at the Kaukauna Board of Public Works meeting.

On Tuesday, at the regular council meeting, John Zierler will be recognized upon his retirement from the Kaukauna Police Department and Joe Lucas and Gary Keating are expected to be reappointed to the Kaukauna Library Board, according to the agend for the meeting. (BELOW)

The council meeting is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, 2017 in the council chambers at the Municipal Services Building, 144 W. Second St., Kaukauna

The bids to be opened Monday are for the reconstruction of the long-neglected lot at the corner of Second Street and Crooks Avenue downtown.

The project is one of three that are part of the bid package.

The project also will include the municipal entry sign and plaza at Second Street and Main Avenue and the Main Avenue terminus at the north end of Main at the Kaukauna Utilities power canal.

The city hosted a public information forum March 2, 2017, to gather input on proposed improvements to the downtown.

City officials outlined plans for decorative plazas in the vacant lot at Second Street and Crooks Avenue and at the north end of Main Avenue near the pedestrian bridge, according to a news release posted by Julie Schroeder of the planning department.

Features proposed for these plazas will include theme lighting, brick pavers, benches, landscaping and unique art installations.

The intersection has been the focus of on-again, off-again improvement plans for more than a year.
