City Seeks to Build New Subdivision on West Side
By Joe Bachman
WISCONSIN RAPIDS — City officials seek to continue progress on a future subdivision for single-family homes on 25th Ave. South and Alton St.
An approval was made for the city to send out an official request for proposal to grab potential developers to build the subdivision. The city will partner with Central Wisconsin Home Builders for this process.
“We’re trying to get a 12-lot subdivision, with a minimum of $150,000 in assessed value,” said Community Development Director Adam Tegan. “…they would need to be 3-bedroom, 2-bath, with a two-car attached garage.”
According to city documents:
“When the City completed a Housing Study and Needs Assessment in 2016, one of the identified goals was to promote and plan for 100 to 150 additional single-family and two-family owner and renter units over the next five years.”
Dubbed ‘Cranberry Creek’, if a developer is found for the subdivision and an RFP is approved, it could see a final nod of approval through city council as soon as April.
