A community workshop to help officials as they form a downtown plan for Port Washington will be held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, at Grand Avenue United Methodist Church.

“This is community workshop one of two,” Bob Harris, the city’s director of planning and development, told the Common Council Tuesday.

The workshop will follow an open house format, with those attending circulating between stations that represent various issues that will be included in the final plan, Harris said.

Those issues include zoning and land uses, urban design and architecture, public spaces, development and redevelopment, parking and the marina.

The city and its consultant, Graef, have already held interviews and focus groups with select downtown developers, officials and property owners to get input into the plan.

A community survey is also underway to give people the opportunity to weigh in on the downtown strategic plan. That survey may be accessed through the city’s website, visit

  The meeting will be in the fellowship hall of the church at 505 W. Grand Ave.

The time and date of the second workshop has not been set, but Harris said it will likely be held sometime this summer.
