Survey seeks input on Green Bay Public Market
GREEN BAY – On Broadway, Inc. (OBI) has launched an online survey to gather public input on the proposed redevelopment of Old Fort Square, 211 N. Broadway, into the Green Bay Public Market.

The preliminary plan includes 42,965 square feet with room for approximately 20 businesses, a community event space, demonstration kitchen, dining area, and additional tenant space.

The $10 million-plus project is expected to attract more than one million visitors to downtown Green Bay annually, according to OBI.

“This project will provide a quality-of-life amenity for the community and that means we want to engage the public in the discussion of what is most desired for a public market in our area,” said Chelsea Kocken, Director of Special Projects for On Broadway, Inc.

Toward that end, OBI has launched an online survey for folks to offer up input.

“The questions we ask within this survey are simple yet provide a good set of data for us to reference when securing tenants, scheduling programming, and working through the details of daily operations,” Kocken said.

OBI will also host listening sessions in front of Old Fort Square during the Wednesday farmers markets on August 24 and September 14.

The public is welcome to stop in anytime from 3 to 8 p.m. to discuss the project.

A second phase includes construction of an apartment development on the city-owned parking lot behind Old Fort Square and is expected to cost more than $21 million.
