Council relaxes building standards for Vision Park

by Jeff Pederson Sheboygan Falls News Editor

In an effort to spark interest in Vision Business Park, members of the Sheboygan Falls Common Council agreed to lower the architectural standards originally established for the park in 2007, during an Economic Development Committee meeting Tuesday, March 3, at the Sheboygan Falls Memorial Library.

Sheboygan Falls Mayor Randy Meyer said Vision Business Park was originally developed as a TIF district designed to attract new businesses to Sheboygan Falls from surrounding communities, as well as companies located in the city’s own Forest Avenue Industrial

Park that were looking to expand.

Since establishing the Vision Park architectural standards in November 2007, the park has attracted just one business, Alternative Solutions.

With the TIF district funding scheduled to lapse at the end of 2016, the city has recently stepped up its efforts to attract businesses to the property, which is located on the far west side of Sheboygan Falls on County TT, just off of County C.

New roads, infrastructure and signage will be added this year and the city has also enlisted support from the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corp. (SCEDC) in making the park more attractive to prospective businesses.

“There is some talk out there that businesses are staying away from Vision Park because our building standards are too high,”
