Mullet River Corridor Plan Recipient of the 2017 Vernon Deines Merit Award for an Outstanding Small Town Project Plan

Plymouth, WI – In May, the Mullet River Corridor Plan was selected by the American Planning Association Small Town and Rural Planning Division as a recipient of the 2017 Vernon Deines Merit Award for an Outstanding Small Town Special Project Plan.  The Awards Committee was “incredibly impressed with the plan and feels it embodies the best of small town planning…the engagement for the project was top notch, and the Committee was particularly interested in the work with the local Lion’s Club.”  The award was accepted by MSA Professional Services at the National Planning Conference in New York City on behalf of the City of Plymouth.  MSA Professional Services was hired by the City of Plymouth as the planning consultant for the project.

The 2017 Stayer Park rehab project is one of the major plan elements of the Mullet River Corridor Plan.  The project includes new public bathrooms, park shelter and plaza area, playground, and parking and drive areas.  The City partnered with the local Lion’s Club on the project as well as Johnsville Sausage.  The project is slated to be completed by early fall 2017 and represents approximately a $1.4m investment in the downtown park.
