City Planning to Amend Redevelopment Area #2

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 2/18/2013

Issued by: Office of the Mayor                                       Donna Olson, Mayor


 Area to expand east, encompassing most of downtown Stoughton

The City of Stoughton Redevelopment Authority (RDA) has begun work on expanding Redevelopment Area #2, a step that is needed for the RDA to administer the City’s planned downtown revolving loan fund (RLF).  The process kicked off with the RDA deciding on the amended boundary at its February 13th meeting.  The new boundary will now stretch from South Prairie Street on the west to South Fifth Street on the east.  The RDA also forwarded a property condition report to the City Council for consideration at its February 26th meeting.

 “The state requires the RDA and the City to approve a plan for the area before the RDA can carry out any activities, such as managing an RLF.  Part of the planning process is a study of property conditions – the Council has to find that more than 50 percent of the area contains ‘blighted’ property.  While the term can be controversial, expanding the boundary will allow the City and RDA to assist businesses and property owners in making improvements to their buildings,” said Scott Truehl, RDA chair. 

 In addition to gathering feedback from downtown property owners via a survey on the RLF, the RDA will be holding a public hearing on the proposed expansion of the Redevelopment Area #2 boundary.  The hearing is scheduled for April 10th

 “The RDA has been active in the Rail Corridor area of the City already – facilitating the 33-unit apartment development by Movin’ Out along the Yahara River and acquiring the dilapidated Highway Trailer building for redevelopment,” said Mayor Donna Olson.  “With its mission of revitalizing central Stoughton, it’s the perfect fit for administering the proposed downtown revolving loan fund.”

Elven Sted project opens other opportunities for redevelopment

Riding the success of a residential housing project, the Stoughton Redevelopment Authority is looking forward to more projects getting off the ground this year. The RDA, a group of members whose day jobs run the gamut from Realtors and general contractors to environmental management, is tasked with revitalizing the former industrial center of the city along the railroad corridor.
President Scott Truehl said the group works by helping developers and homeowners find ways to improve the area. Among its many duties, the RDA can help developers seek grants for environmental clean-up and can help direct Tax Incremental Financing money to development sites... Read full article
