MAGIC, an extension of Let’s Minocqua, at it’s root, was created to have open and constructive communication with the communities and businesses we serve. Our efforts are to strengthen community dialogue and to help work towards common goals we all value. Let’s make MAGIC happen.

COMMUNITY PLACEMAKING ROUNDTABLE—APRIL 20, 6PM
According to 'Project for Public Spaces'; As both an overarching idea and a hands-on approach for improving a neighborhood, city, or region, placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, placemaking refers to a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm in order to maximize shared value. More than just promoting better urban design, placemaking facilitates creative patterns of use, paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place and support its ongoing evolution. With community-based participation at its center, an effective placemaking process capitalizes on local community assets, inspiration, and potential, and it results in the creation of quality public spaces that contribute to people's health, happiness, and well being. We invite you to a round-table discussion at The Campanile Center for the Arts on April 20 at 6 p.m. Registration is required. Pizza and refreshments will be served. Please help provide us with creative opportunities to strengthen our community. Pre-registration will be required to participate in this event.
DISRUPTOR CULTURE ROUNDTABLE—MAY 11, 6PM
There have been lots of conversations in the community discussing food trucks, ride services like Lyft and Uber, short term rental companies like VRBO and Airbnb and how they compete against the brick and mortar establishments we all know and love. How can we find a balance in our community to welcome new business models that are cutting edge all while still supporting our current business culture and economy? We invite you to this round-table discussion at The Waters of Minocqua on May 11th at 6 pm. Registration is required. Pizza and refreshments will be served. Cash bar available.
