Onalaska to develop cost-benefit analysis of Timber Square buildings

Results of study to be sent to Common Council before Dec. 10 meeting

City of Onalaska staff are developing a cost-benefit analysis of the Timber Square buildings at 420 and 426 2nd Avenue South.

The city announced Wednesday that the study will likely be sent to the Common Council before the December 10 meeting.

In August, the Common Council directed city staff to perform a cost-benefit analysis of the property. Some people want the city to consider scrapping plans to construct brand-new buildings for the new cultural and tourism center and use vacant buildings instead.
