In 2021, Waupaca’s historic downtown Main Street is getting a facelift. New street lighting, sidewalks, utilities, and streetscape improvements will position the district for future success. To learn more about these improvements visit (insert link to Main Street Reconstruction page).

As the City prepares for this major investment, the community is also organizing to help fundraise for additional downtown investments including biking improvements, sidewalk poetry, and a downtown sound system.

What we are up to

We have identified additional downtown improvements we’d like to see outside the city’s current budget for the Main Street reconstruction project (link back to that page). The priorities we’ve identified so far include:

Now that we’ve established a few priorities we are developing a fundraising strategy to implement these priorities. As plans firm up we’ll be reaching out to the community to ask for help!

We’ve also applied to join the Wisconsin Connect Communities program. To learn more about this program visit:
