Vision for Downtown
De Pere’s east side taking shape

A final recommendation has been laid out for future development of the east side of Downtown De Pere, which includes potential new residential, recreational and commercial additions near the Fox River, as well as the integration of the proposed Mulva Cultural Center. De Pere’s Plan Commission approved this final recommendation on June 25.

Citizens may now review the specifics of this vision and give feedback to City leaders. Final approval of this plan will potentially take place at the Common Council’s July 17 meeting.

More information on this process and the documents can be found here:

Recycling Reminders

Plastic bags are NOT accepted through the City of De Pere curbside or drop off recycling programs. The recycling system is not designed to remove plastic bags. These bags are recyclable through many local retail and grocery store outlets. Also, to be courteous to the people who sort your recycling, we ask that you rinse your containers before tossing them into your bin or cart. Bottle caps may now be left on containers after rinsing.
