Village of Slinger eyes redevelopment of former Niphos site

SLINGER, Wisc. (Excerpts from gmtoday.com) – The former Niphos plant in the Village of Slinger is the focus of a request for proposals for redevelopment being prepared by Washington County and scheduled for release on Dec. 3. 

Through the Site Redevelopment program, Stantec Consulting Services and Vandewalle and Associates have worked in collaboration with the County and the Village to consider various redevelopment scenarios for the property. A  mandatory preproposal meeting in early January and then proposals would be due by Jan. 23.

The site was the site of a 2012 Superfund clean-up effort. A feasibility study is now underway considering a potential TIF district which would be available to assist redevelopment.

Recently the Village Board agreed to continue its involvement with the Washington County Brownfields Assessment Coalition, which it has been a member of since 2014. The group has successfully secured several  Environmental Protection Agency grants, one of which was used for the Niphos property.
