After a more than yearlong public planning process involving hundreds of residents, business owners, institutions and community leaders, the Kenosha Common Council adopted a master plan Monday for an innovation neighborhood on the city’s 107-acre former Chrysler plant.
The measure passed unanimously, with Kenosha Ald. Dominic Ruffalo calling it a “history-making event in the city of Kenosha.”
“It’s going to change the future of Kenosha,” Ruffalo said in comments before the vote. “Not so much for ourselves or our children — probably our grandchildren. …This is a big part of where Kenosha is going.”
