The Community Development Authority (CDA) met, and has held multiple meetings and a public hearing, on blighting the former Boston Store property. On April 2, 2021 the CDA approved a resolution recommending the Village Board determine that the property is blighted. The Village Board affirmed this at their meeting on April 6, 2021.
Blighting is a designation provided for in Wisconsin Statutes Section 66.1333(5)(c)
The blight designation opens up opportunities for redevelopment on this site. The Village Board is continuing to work on this issue.
