The 2040 Community Plan for Red Wing is filled with action items that will help the community address a variety of challenges related to land use, economic development, redevelopment, and housing. The community’s extensive vision also enabled the planning team to address wide-ranging issues such as lifelong learning, public health, and connectivity and accessibility.
HKGi has also conducted redevelopment, streetscape, and park planning and design for the City of Red Wing. Many of these projects are intended to leverage Red Wing’s unique landscape as a quality of life amenity that can attract new residents and employers to the community.
Addresses affordable housing and community growth within a geographically constrained community
Land use and urban design policies address development complications due to blufflands and river frontage lands
Extensive community engagement conducted prior to and as part of the comprehensive planning process
In addition to an award-winning engagement campaign programmed and conducted by the City and HKGi, the planning process featured an intense 4-day design charrette in which HKGi’s staff members created redevelopment plans for opportunity sites across the city. Concepts addressed downtown redevelopment, residential and commercial redevelopment for several sites across the community, and ideas for reinvigorating and updating some of the city’s parks and public spaces.
