The redevelopment of the Glatfelter site in Neenah has finally created a connection of place for this portion of the downtown, allowing it to seamlessly join with the pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use, community-oriented environment that has for so long existed in Downtown Neenah. In a way, it could be viewed as the new, modern extension of the historic downtown which has not forgotten its beginnings as is evidenced by the architectural style/materials of the new buildings and the tribute to the history of the site at Legacy Park.

The uses and activities on the site continue to increase as construct ion of the Gateway Plaza was recently completed this past summer and development of the larger connected Arrowhead park properties gets underway this fall. Ultimately, the space will be utilized not only by businesses and their employees, but also area resident s and visitors that want to experience the ambience of small-t own downtown shopping and dining and/or enjoy the parks and trails which establish a natural refuge within an urban environment.
