New Neenah Development May Cost New Mayor

 Neenah--  Plans for a new multi-million dollar development in downtown Neenah were released this week.  

   Horizon Development Group out of Madison has offered to spend 8 million dollars to build a four story multi-use building on the corner of Main and Wisconsin Ave.

  The project would include underground parking, first floor retail space and three floors of family housing.

  The only building on the proposed site that the city does not own, Under the Dome Sports Bar & Grill,  is actually owned by newly elected Mayor Dean Kaufert and his wife Renee.

  "I want to be transparent through this process" said Kaufert "I asked to be updated only when the information was about to go public.  Deciding the future of Under the Dome will be difficult.

   The city will be holding a series of neighborhood meetings to gather input and to answer questions.

   If all goes as planned, construction would begin in September of 2015.
