Civic Campus Redevelopment

Landscape Architecture, Municipal, Site Design | Wisconsin | Back


For many years the Village of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, staff worked in a cramped, outdated, urban property set in the retail-first area of the village.


Thanks to a generous donation, the village procured a 15-acre site for the new Civic Campus, which consists of a newly constructed Village Hall, Police Station, and Department of Public Works facility.

The new design includes multiple parking lots with the capacity for 350 vehicles and separate access roads for the police department, village hall staff, and public vehicles. User-friendly walkways around the entire campus provide access to natural areas, wetlands, and a small creek meandering through the property.

Stormwater management for the campus includes two wet detention ponds and three bio-retention facilities designed and landscaped to blend into the surrounding natural environment. A small bio-retention cell near the building entry acts as an educational tool, allowing visitors to understand how the stormwater flow is handled for both water quality and water quantity. Street trees and low landscaping welcome visitors along the new boulevard entry road into the site while maintaining safe sightlines.
