City Planning and Development reveals final design for pocket neighborhood

Pocket neighborhood plans unveiled

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - The La Crosse Planning and Development Department has revealed the final site concept design for the pocket neighborhood at the former Naval Reserve site.

The site is located between Green Bay Street and Hyde Avenue.

Back in February, the department presented the community with six design plans and after public input, came up with a final design.  The site will include 10 small homes around a shared green space, a community building, and a shared tool shed or bike storage.

"This really, I think, hits the marketplace for empty nesters, maybe some families that are just getting started and so the architect that we are working with, he said he really wanted to make sure you hit both of those target audiences," says Larry Kirch from the City Planning and Development Department.

The next step is for the city to hire a developer for the project which they hope to have done by August.
