Oscar Mayer site

February 23, 2017 2:41 AM




You might have heard the recent news that a potential developer is interested in the Oscar Mayer site. They are still in the review phase and have not made any decisions as to what to develop on the site.

in the past week I have been engaged with Mayor Soglin, Alder Kemble and city staff on what this potential development might mean for the city and District 12 residents.

We know that we are still committed to a public committee to look at the redevelopment options and guide the city's process. We are exploring ways to augment the $100,000 that was budgeted in the 2017 city budget to plan for the site. 

We are encouraged that the site could be redeveloped sooner but smart decisions must be made in a deliberate and thoughtful manner. Residents and business in the area will most certainly be a part of this decision process.

Thank you for your continued engagement in our community,
