Open house shows Kimberly residents plans for old NewPage site

by

KIMBERLY, WI (WTAQ) - Some people in the Fox Valley got a look at what the future holds for the former NewPage paper mill in Kimberly.

During an open house Wednesday, plans were publicly unveiled for the Cedars at Kimberly.

“It's just interesting to see what's going to happen to the place where we went every day for most of our lives,” Gary Breier told FOX 11.

Since their debut back in November, the plans have been tweaked a little.

“We've taken the next step to include an implementation document which is a guide for the plan commission and other planning materials. We also have renderings of the neighborhoods that are about to be created on this site,” Randy Stadtmueller of Stadtmueller and Associates, the consulting firm working on the project, told FOX 11.

The Cedars at Kimberly will feature a mix of living spaces as well as retail and restaurant space. Developers also plan to add riverfront walkways.

Some folks still have reservations about the project, including the proposed size of the development.

The plan commission still has to approve the final details of the development. Road and sewer system construction could begin as early as this fall.
