With the harbor master plan and its industrial park as a canvas to work with, Kewaunee officials are looking for someone to take over the city’s economic development planning and grant writing duties. The city sought comments from the community earlier this year about its draft integrated plan, which included changes to its comprehensive, outdoor recreation, and waterfront proposals. Mayor Sandi Christman says hiring a community and economic development planner would be an important move for the city.
Christman says the first year of the salary will be covered by a Wisconsin Coastal Management grant.
