OSHKOSH – The city has made it to the home stretch of a redevelopment that is 23 years in the making.
Plans are in motion for remaining vacant sites in the Marion Road redevelopment plan, an update that excites Mark Lyons, the city's planning services manager.
The Oshkosh Common Council on Tuesday approved a specific implementation plan for the first phase in the Mackson Corners development at the southwest corner of Jackson Street and Marion Road. (If you missed that, the aptly named "Mackson" comes from combining the two street names.)
"We've done substantial, significant development," Lyons said. "The tax value to that area now versus when we started in (1998) is a significant increase."
