Winona Downtown Strategic Plan

Winona, MN | Public Works

Overview

ISG has worked with the City to plan 20+ projects focused on economic development, workforce, connectivity, multi-modal transportation, revitalization, education, safety, and sustainability.


Opportunity

To drive economic development in the area, City leaders decided to take a strategic look at how to welcome and embrace change while maintaining Downtown Winona’s strong values and history.

Solution

Passion is generally derived from an intimate, direct connection, and ISG has continually been involved in projects that positively impact the City of Winona and its citizens. Efforts have included master planning efforts and individual studies, both with public and private partnerships in mind. From transformative improvements to the City’s historic Levee Park and Main Street district to planning efforts that create a strategic resource for the revitalization and preservation of outdoor community assets, ISG’s work in Winona has been both dynamic and impactful.


"I really do think this investment in what we're doing now is going to pay off in the 60 Main Street project and other projects downtown.”

- Mark Peterson, Mayor, City of Winona
