Kewaunee awarded $1.75-million for Fisherman's Point

A key part of the City of Kewaunee's waterfront redevelopment plan is getting a major boost through the Community Development Block Grant program.  The city is getting $1.75-million to acquire, renovate and improve Fisherman's Point.  That process would include removing some existing, blighted buildings.  Kewaunee Mayor Jason Jelinek says a major focus will be to make the property more accessible by reducing flood risks from rising lake levels.

Mayor Jelinek hopes the Fisherman's Point project will eventually lead to additional grant funding toward the $1.8-million purchase of Salmon Harbor Marina.  He believes the project will convince the Economic Development Administration that Salmon Harbor will be an economic boost for Kewaunee.

Mayor Jelinek believes clearing and preparation work on Fisherman's Point will be completed before next winter.
