Marquette School property stirs up conversation

The City of Kewaunee is inviting the public to discuss the future of the former Marquette School property. The conversation started late last month when developer Jeff Welhouse pulled his letter of intent to purchase the property due to health concerns. He pursued a certificate of appropriateness from the Kewaunee Historical Preservation Committee more than five months for a proposed “twindomonium” project but denied by a vote of 6-2. At the public information meeting on Monday, Welhouse will discuss his proposal before Seth Hudson discusses how tax increment financing works. Mayor Jason Jelinek will discuss the history of TIFs in Kewaunee including the possibility of TIF #3 which would include the Marquette School parcel as well as the former Hamechek property. Jelinek says the meeting is important for residents to learn and to ask questions.

The public information meeting for the development proposal for the Marquette School property is May 17th at 6 p.m. inside the Kewaunee Elementary School Gymnasium.
