Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.
Activating Doty Mill Alley
This team will be working to revitalize an alley in downtown Janesville to provide a safe walkable throughway from River St (soon to be a festival street) to the rear entries of the Milwaukee St businesses, riverwalk/pedestrian bridge, and new Town Square. This project will include an architectural entryway, benches, enclosures for current dumpsters or new solution for refuse disposal, historic pictures mounted to the rear of Milwaukee street buildings, colorful art/paint on the IBEW building, awnings, overhead lighting, architectural/ artistic features, new paving, and more.
