Wedding Season Downtown

 

 

Business Spotlight

Celebrating Gordon's Sports Bar and Grill

 

 

You’ve seen the riots. You’ve seen the destruction.

But We’re Still Together. We’re Rebuilding. We’re Growing. We’re Planning for the Future.

We’ve Raised Over $350,000 for Uptown and Downtown Businesses. We’ve Worked with WEDC and KABA to launch programming for another 4 Million Dollars in redevelopment.

Next Goal: Community Place-making Initiatives Through Art Installations, Urban Gardening, and Destination Marketing.

We want to put Kenosha back on the map in a good way! But we need your help to reach it.

Join us today, however you can, to help Kenosha business districts grow and continue to improve for our community! By creating a physically inviting environment during this redevelopment phase, we are welcoming the community back into our business districts to work, live, play, and invest. 

Funds and proceeds will be dedicated to rebuilding businesses, facilities and related infrastructure directly impacted by the riots, looting, arson, and civil unrest that occurred in the City of Kenosha, Wisconsin beginning the week of August 23rd, 2020. Funds initially collected were prioritized to: clean-up and repair of windows, doors and exterior facades; materials used for internal and external clean-up, graffiti removal, and materials used to mitigate damage (i.e. plywood, fire spray, etc.), and relief for internal damage such as to furniture, fixtures, and equipment replacements; and funds to replace lost inventory.  This next initiative is earmarked for the beautification of the business districts during its redevelopment phase through art installations, urban garden, development and maintenance of parks, benches, banners, and other way finding initiatives. It’s time to make our district inviting again. A community-led committee will prioritize fund use and make recommendations for disbursement based on need and an agreed upon and transparent process.  The process is dedicated to meet the urgent needs faced by our community members facing loss and destruction primarily situated in the uptown and downtown areas of Kenosha, Wisconsin. In order to ensure the ability of Downtown Kenosha Inc. to continue to serve the community through both the immediate crisis and long-term recovery, a maximum of 10% of the funds received will be reserved for the administrative costs of the organization.
