Wisconsin Town’s Plans To Revitalize Old Paper Mill Site. What Would You Like To See At Former Verso Paper Mill Site In Sartell [POLL]
KIMBERLY, Wis. (AP) – The village of Kimberly has revealed its preliminary plans for the former NewPage paper mill site.
The paper plant closed about five years ago. Now the village wants to revitalize the 98-acre site with a mix of residential and commercial development. The plans include single-family homes, townhouses, apartments, office buildings, restaurants and retail shops.
The site is owned by AIM Development, which is working with the village and other developers. The cost and timetable for the development have not been made public.
Sartell and the former Verso Paper Mill site are in a similar situation. The paper mill has been closed since an explosion and fire on Memorial Day 2012. AIM Development also bought the Sartell site, and has been in the demolition process for a couple of months.
