LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Construction of a "pocket neighborhood" at the former Naval Reserve Building in La Crosse could begin by the end of this year.
A city committee met with a contractor Monday about the design of the community.
The "pocket neighborhood" would include about a dozen smaller homes on the lot and a shared green space. The city council unanimously approved it early last year.
Now, city officials are working with the contractor to finalize designs and layouts of the houses that will work for a number of populations. "It's a nice, sort of empty nester, young family, like empty nester or young family kind of living arrangement because it's small and it's community based," said Assoc. City Planner Lewis Kuhlman.
Those are just two examples he gave.
A public meeting about the neighborhood is scheduled for February 17th.24148814
