A new leaser of the old Algoma Hardwoods property is looking to revitalize the old site for storage and potential tenants in the future. City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says the McDonald Company from Green Bay is working with fire inspectors as the process of utilizing the vacant building continues. He says a report by Gary Becker, a planning consultant, back in September has helped give new promise to the location.
The 100-page-report also showed that access to the Ahnapee River and Trail could expand opportunities as well. The Algoma Hardwoods plant closed in August of 2017.
