Wisconsin Waterfront Revitalization Conference
From Vision to Reality
In April, 2005 more than 190
people came together for the Wisconsin Waterfront Revitalization Conference
at the Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. This event offered
expert panels and an exhibit showcase to assist coastal communities
with revitalization based on redevelopment of underutilized areas and
protection of natural and coastal resources. The Blue Harbor Resort
was chosen because of its location on Lake Michigan and its brownfield
history as the former C.Reiss Coal facility.
Waterfront Revitalization Conference was designed to:
- Improve local waterfront community awareness and use of existing state and federal
programs available to assist with waterfront community revitalization.
- Maximize the use of existing brownfields and open space/coastal resources protection
- Promote the development of teams and partnerships
