Reasonably priced housing tops list of strategies for Appleton’s COVID-19 help

6 min read

APPLETON – Advocates for reasonably priced housing, early childhood packages and mental wellbeing expert services lobbied town officials this week for a share of the approximately $15 million in COVID-19 aid that Appleton will acquire through the American Rescue Plan Act.

Other group associates asked for the money be employed to help the tourism marketplace, Fox Metropolitan areas Exhibition Centre, Thompson Heart on Lourdes and Harbor Household Domestic Abuse Method, all of which were being negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Downtown businessman David Oliver recommended Appleton use the funds to reconfigure Faculty Avenue from a 4-lane road to a two-lane street with bicycle lanes to boost basic safety, cut down sounds pollution and do away with drag racing.

“I know this would be a major lift and in all probability isn’t likely to materialize,” mentioned Oliver, owner of Mondo! Wine Bar & Retail, “but I would enjoy to see something like that.”
