The Waukegan Port District will host the public on Wednesday March 22nd to unveil their preliminary Waukegan Harbor Master Plan currently in development.
The public meeting will provide the community an opportunity to learn more about the proposed direction the Port District is going to pursue with regard to redevelopment at the Harbor. The project stems from a grant received from Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Sustainable Coastal Planning Program.
The intent of the project is to provide the Port District with a clear set of priorities over the near and long-term to make redevelopment a reality at the Harbor. The Greater Waukegan Development Coalition (GWDC) secured the $100,000 grant from the IDNR on the Port District’s behalf in 2015 and led the team that ultimately selected the lead planner on the project, Edgewater Resources.
