The Village of Allouez is hosting a Press Conference, Presentation and Public Open House Tuesday, June 26th from 5pm to 7pm at the Allouez Village Hall located at 1900 Libal Street, in Allouez to present a Conceptual Plan for a future development on the current Green Bay Correctional Institution (GBCI) site.
The Conceptual Plan includes the types of properties, public spaces and other amenities called for in the Village of Allouez Comprehensive Plan, Allouez Corridor Study, and the Greater Green Bay Economic Development Strategic Plan.
"While there is great support for replacing GBCI with something else, we often hear people ask what type of development would replace it. This is a chance for the media, elected officials, business owners and area residents to see, firsthand, the special opportunity we have before us.", said Jim Rafter, Allouez Village President.
The meeting will start with brief statements beginning at 5pm, followed by a detailed presentation of the Conceptual Plan. After the presentation, there will be time to view the Conceptual Plan up close and ask questions.
Please contact Brad Lange, Allouez Village Administrator, for more information via email or by calling 920-448-2800.

Age 65 has long been considered the traditional retirement age, and -- not coincidentally -- is also the age of Medicare eligibility.
According to recent statistics, the percentage of Americans 65 and older who are still in the labor force has risen to nearly 20%, the highest level since before Medicare was established in 1965.
More than 9 million Americans aged 65 and older are working; a record number that is expected to rise in the coming decades, largely because of demographic and economic shifts. The first baby boomers have started to file for Medicare, and about 8,000 boomers will turn 65 each day until 2030.
The U.S. economy is now dominated by service industries, which means there are plenty of employment opportunities that are less physically demanding. In addition, boomers enjoy better health and greater vitality than previous generations.
Even so, an aging U.S. workforce paints a mixed picture, with some positive and negative implications for the long-term financial security of American retirees, and the U.S. labor force.
Economic Necessity: U.S. employers have largely replaced traditional pensions with retirement savings accounts, such as 401(k) plans, which are funded primarily by employee contributions. Unfortunately, many workers have not saved enough money to retire comfortably.
In fact, nearly half of today’s retirees depend on Social Security for more than half of their income. Considering that the average benefit for retired workers is $1,341 per month in 2016, it’s apparent that some people must...

Father's Day is This Sunday, and The Green Bay News Network wishes a Very Happy Father's Day Weekend to all Fathers among our Members and Readers!
Fathers are just WONDERFUL
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...
From "Fathers are Wonderful People," by Helen Steiner Rice
In honor of this holiday, we'd like to share with you a bit of its history:
On July 5th, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation’s first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday.
The next year, a Spokane, Washington, woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation’s first statewide Father’s Day on June 19, 1910.
Slowly, the holiday spread. In 1916, President Wilson honored the day by using telegraph signals to unfurl a flag in Spokane when he pressed a button in Washington, D.C. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe Father’s Day.
Today, the day honoring fathers is celebrated in the United States on the third Sunday of June.
