‘ROUND DOWNTOWN by Matt Gonya
ABOUT THE ARTIST: I’m a starving artist living in Kenosha. Being a resident of Kenosha for
the majority of my life has given me plenty of fodder for this new comic. I was flattered when
asked to do a comic strip for Downtown Kenosha Magazine.
I hope you enjoy my silly misadventures in Downtown Kenosha.
Thanks for reading. See you in the next issue!

Strategic Development Plan — a comprehensive study of what to HarborPark. Below: an artist interpretation shows the future vision of Downtown, with
do to ensure the ongoing success of the neighborhood and offer-
ing a long-term plan to make a dream become a reality. a relocated City Hall, new parks, and mixed-use buildings up to 10 stories high.
In September, the city has taken the first steps in a very ambitious
development program outlined in the Strategic Development Plan,
which includes building a new City Hall at the corner of 56th Street
and Sheridan Road, a large public park in its place, a performing
arts center, and a number of “mixed-use” buildings, some up to ten
stories high. According to the Kenosha News, the city hopes to see
construction begin as soon as Spring 2019.
With the success of HarborPark, the Fifth Avenue Lofts, and the
many new shops, restaurants, and other businesses taking root in
the Downtown neighborhood, it will be exciting to see Downtown
continue to evolve in the next few years.
On the Kenosha News Facebook page, many residents have
applauded the plan:
“There is tons of revenue that the city will never see if there isn't
development along the lakefront. I love the vision and can't wait for
groundbreaking!” - Adam Vee
“I like the mayor's vision. Look around...Kenosha is continually
improving. I was downtown on a Sunday night. I could not believe
how many people. Now's the time. Foxcon and its suppliers will
bring growth here. All development with tax credits require a set
aside for low income families. Excited to see what comes next!” -
“Yessssss! We have a beautiful city and it is going to live up to its
potential. I am happy to hear it!” - Jacqueline Miletic
