I approached UW-Extension after reading an article in a local newspaper about a neighboring village that was facing some of the same struggles with its downtown district that the Village of Walworth is facing. I contacted Bill Ryan, and we scheduled a time for him to stop by our Plan Commission and give a presentation about how to improve the situation in our downtown square. Bill's presentation was insightful and thoughtful and our Plan Commission was able to take that information and start crafting a plan to revive this once vibrant portion of our community. We've since been able to attract some new businesses and clean up some of the issues we were having. While we still have a long way to go, Bill Ryan and the UW-Extension set us on the path to restoring our historic downtown square and surrounding business district. Many Thanks for the help!
