Willow Lake announces new housing development & cash incentive for new homes
The City of Willow Lake is offering lots at no cost in its new "Logan Addition" housing development. The City is moving forward with laying in the infrastructure in the new development, and lots will be available this year.
In addition, Willow Lake Area Advancement, the local economic development organization, is offering a limited number of $7,500 cash incentives to anyone building a new home in Willow Lake. For the cash incentive, the home can be anywhere within Willow Lake city limits, including -- but not limited to -- the Logan Addition. Five of these $7,500 incentives remain at this time.
Eight lots are available, as shown in the image below. Each lot is approximately 0.4 to 0.5 acres. Logan Street is being extended on an angle northwest through the development.
This area is zoned for Single-Family Residential at this time. Duplexes would be considered by the City for the Logan Addition, but would need to go through the proper zoning exception channels.
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.
