Did you know that the Appleton Redevelopment Authority met in private session on February 28th for the purpose of deliberating or negotiating the purchasing the property at 320 E. College Avenue? A motion was then passed that allows for the ARA to contribute up to $250,000 toward the purchase of this property. Read on to learn more.
According to the Appleton Comprehensive Plan the 300 Block of E. College Avenue is conceptually identified as a site for new multi-family residential development over a mix of commercial / office space which could serve the needs of existing property owners, including but not limited to Heid Music and Lawrence University. The goal is to fill a housing demand, transition to the small scale neighborhoods and enhance the immediate surroundings with small commercial space to pull foot traffic north of College Avenue.
