Green Bay officials give approval to riverfront development plan
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay officials have approved development plans for the city’s west-side riverfront.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that City Council has approved a development agreement for the Shipyard project. The proposal includes a stadium, indoor concert venue and restaurant. Officials expect the project to cost around $11 million.
Parking at the site would also be expanded. The waterfront would get boat docks, a playground and a recreational path. Additional funds would be used to improve neighborhoods in the area.
Huntington Bank officials say it will provide a construction loan to the city.
The agreement says construction of the stadium should be completed by March 2019, meaning work on the stadium would need to start by next September. The concert venue and restaurant may be completed sooner.
