The Village of Union Grove’s Downtown Revitalization received an a $250,000 Blight Elimination and Brownfield Redevelopment (BEBR) grant awarded by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce.
In 2008, the Village of Union Grove Community Development Authority (CDA) purchased several properties at the intersection of Main and Tenth Streets as the site of the first redevelopment project under the Downtown Redevelopment Plan that was created in 2005. With this grant assistance, the Village will be able to clean-up a long vacant and contaminated property, returning the site to a higher value upon completion.
Upon remediation of the site, a developer plans to construct a mixed used building that would provide ground floor retail with office space on the second floor with a second residential building to the East consisting of four apartment units.
This grant marks another significant milestone for the revitalization of Downtown Union Grove.
RCEDC plays a significant role with the Village of Union Grove in its redevelopment efforts, as well as provides financing options to businesses and developers for redevelopment projects.
