Using a $10,000 grant from the Wausau Children’s Hospital Medical Clinic, the firm will develop a more complete design for the project, such as how the building would sit on the site, said Benjamin Schillig, a principal with the Greenfield-based company.
The plan is for an adjacent building to be developed to house a new chiropractic office.
A new clinic for a chiropractor greenfield is more typical of the kind of development Greenfield needs, Schillig said.
“There are too many vacant building, and greenfield won’t do well unless it can get the amenities,” he said.
Greenfield has a building that is 60 years old that has been turned into a chiropractor greenfield office. Greenfield is a business-friendly community, Schillig said. He said he believes there are enough opportunities for people to move to the area and make a living without having to move to Madison or Greenfield.
Brad Zuback of A. Zuback Co. said he and Schillig had not met with the city and didn’t know whether they would need to submit a plan.
In addition to its proposal for a new clinic, Greenfield has been pursuing a state grant through a state Office of Community Assistance and Services that would provide money for a new community greenfield development in the city. A total of $847,800 would be provided for this community greenfield through the incentive program, according to city documents.
The village board of trustees on June 5 approved spending up to $50,000 for Greenfield to pursue that grant.
The office, according to information from the village, must determine if the project meets the criteria for the money by Sept. 25.
The new community greenfield development would be one of the major changes in Greenfield’s business community. That involves greenfield centers, such as the Walmart and Lowe’s stores and Lowe’s Home Improvement store. A number of downtown Greenfield buildings have been demolished and are being replaced by greenfield centers.
A. Zuback Co. has recently been involved in the redevelopment.
