Over the course of 2013, ECWRPC staff worked with the Village of Kimberly, as well as the property-owner’s consultant, to generate a master plan concept for the redevelopment of the former NewPage paper mill – a 98-acre site along the Fox River. This concept, named “The Cedars at Kimberly” to emphasize nature and celebrate the community’s heritage, was publicly unveiled in November. Since then, staff has created various supplementary materials, including three-dimensional renderings, street cross sections, and a guiding principles document, which were shared at an open house in January. “The Cedars at Kimberly” project and its public engagement process have received very positive feedback and a variety of media coverage. Although many details will continue to be worked out with the Village Board and Plan Commission, some initial project phasing could begin as soon as late 2014.
