Next downtown development?
Will former OmniSource land be site of the ….

Depending on who is looking at the site and picturing the future, it would be a great place for a water park or a multiuse sports center or a mix of apartments, restaurants and retail stores. Or it would have been a great place for a downtown ball stadium.

City leaders have long envisioned something special there. With 29 acres of land – for the most part, level and free of buildings – space is plentiful. The location is ideal – across the river from and just north of Headwaters Park, across Clinton Street from Lawton Park and Science Central, a moderate walk from downtown.

Still, with a deadline looming, formidable obstacles to a city-led development remain. The current price tag – up to $4.3 million – is most likely beyond the immediate reach of a city government just beginning to cope with new property tax laws that will reduce budgets.
