Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Unlimited Products Engineering Co. site, Racine, Wisconsin

The City of Racine appears ready to take to next steps to rehabilitate a long-vacant North Memorial Drive former industrial site and make it ready for new development.

A recommendation from the Redevelopment Authority (RDA) of the City of Racine that the former industrial site be declared blighted is the next step on the path to clearing, rehabilitating and ultimately developing the property. That designation now rests with the Common Council.

The “determination of blight is on the Common Council agenda for Aug. 7,” said Amy Connolly, Director of City Development. “This determination is needed before the Redevelopment Authority can accept the property from the City and begin its work on brownfield remediation and demolition on behalf of the City.”

The UPEC property, 1500 Memorial Drive, is an industrial property of about 3.1 acres. It is locally known for the name of a past owner, “Unlimited Products Engineering Co.” or “UPEC.” According to RDA documents: “There are four masonry and steel buildings and one wood frame building on the site. The total floor area of the buildings is approximately 69,200 square feet.”
