De Pere City Council Summary:

De Pere Health Department has held 45 vaccination clinics and administered 2822 doses.  All clinics now welcome walk-ins (no appointment necessary.) The next clinic is May 25th.  You’ll also notice “pop-up” clinics happening where people are gathering at places such as the farmer’s market and the Voyager Park Beer Garden events as well as the ability to make house calls for those homebound.  For information on vaccine access visit:

Voyager Park and other area parks have seen increased loitering and disorderly conduct.  Earlier this year, the council approved an ordinance to enact park ejections – since the ordinance went into action there have been 9 park ejections, however the larger group of individuals continue to cause disturbance.  De Pere Police regularly monitor our parks and ask residents to call in when you witness reckless behavior as it happens.  See the attached police flyer for more information.

Council approved funding to utilize a recruiting company for police chief recruitment as Chief Derek Beiderwieden prepares for retirement.

The Council supported (via a 6 to 2 vote) the Board of Public Works recommended to deny the installation of Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFB) at the following locations: Chicago Street at O’Hearn Lane, Chicago Street at Crestview Lane, Main Avenue at Seventh Street.  These locations were reviewed for traffic volume (both vehicle and pedestrian) as well as current yielding to pedestrian vehicle behavior, site visibility, and street layout – results indicated that RRFB’s were not necessary. 

The Council voted unanimously to approve a bid submitted by SmithGroup to update the City of De Pere Comprehensive Plan. Our current plan was last updated in 2010. While many of the elements of the current plan remain the same, there will be changes made, as well as the addition of a West Side Vision Plan, similar to the Cultural District Plan that was added to the Comprehensive Plan in 2018. The City’s current plan can be found at the following link:…
