The Ho-Chunk Village development is a unique blend of three design and development concepts:
NEW URBANISM - higher-density mixed use to maximize capital expenditures and land base where availability of land is limited.
ACTIVE LIVING - encouraging the health and social benefits of creating a close-knit community through a design plan that encourages walking.
CULTURAL - due to the unique nature of our heritage, we have integrated traditional Winnebago village concepts into the design, such as locating facilities in a traditional and historical placement and creating a cultural gathering place at the center.
Our traditional village design is based on creating beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, incorporating rich cultural traditions that promote healthy lifestyle. Winnebago hopes this transformation will help them reclaim the balance of health, work, and family that is an intrinsic part of their heritage.
This subdivision will create economic, job creation, and housing opportunities for the Village of Winnebago, Winnebago Tribal members, and residents of Thurston County, Nebraska because it will provide for both commercial and residential development. Proposed commercial development includes construction of a mini-strip mall for small retail outlets and construction of a building for a light manufacturing use, such as office furniture manufacturing.
