Willow Lake announces

new housing development

& cash incentive

After a year of planning, the City of Willow Lake has selected a layout for its new "Logan Addition" housing development and will be moving forward with surveying and infrastructure placement.

At its March 2020 meeting, the city council selected the layout as shown to the right. It features 5 large lots for new homes, with Logan Street extending northwest on an angle through the new development. The decision came after review of the 4 design concepts proposed by ISG, the engineering firm brought in to consult on the project, as well as public input on design options.

There are 2 housing incentives currently offered by the community of Willow Lake. The City is offering a lot at no cost to anyone who will build or bring in a new house to the Logan Addition. Also, Willow Lake Area Advancement is offering a cash incentive of $7,500 per-family-unit ($15,000 for a duplex) to anyone who will build or bring in a new home in the Logan Addition or anywhere else within Willow Lake city limits.

The concept drawing shows large lots for single-family homes, but the City leaders are open to the placement of duplexes here if there is interest, especially in the two lots at the south end of the development, on either side of the road nearest to the entrance to the current Logan Street.

Another portion of the overall project is enhancing the waterway locally known as "The Dexter," which borders this area. The Advancement board is researching options for green space, walking trails, and tree plantings for this area. Grants and donations will be pursued for these beautification efforts.

If you are interested in securing a lot in the Logan Addition or have any questions about the projects or the incentives, please contact the City and Advancement board contacts listed here.
