Mayor Barrett announces Menomonee Valley Industrial Center is now sold out – then goes for a walk in Three Bridges Park
On August 24, 2018 Mayor Tom Barrett announced the last two parcels at the city owned Menomonee Valley Industrial Center are being sold; filling the business park 15 years after its development effort began. Splat!dpi, a specialty commercial printer, will move their Emmber Lane operations to a larger facility on the two-acre parcel. Badger Railing will expand the size of their operations with the development of a parcel adjacent to their current facility. Sigma is serving as the environmental and civil engineering consultant for both development projects; and the overall industrial park, on behalf of the City, providing soil and vapor management in accordance with WDNR requirements, as well as site civil design.
Following the announcement, Sigma staff enjoyed a beautiful walk with the Mayor as part of his “100 miles in 100 days” initiative, venturing through Menomonee Valley’s Three Bridges park and along the North Bank Trail with members of the Valley community.
The Sigma Group served as the consulting engineer for the North Bank Trail project. The project involved the stabilization and restoration of the north bank of the Menomonee River and construction of approximately 1,000 linear feet of trail along the north bank of the river. The project is part of a larger endeavor to redevelop the Menomonee Valley, an area that represents 1,200-acres of the most visible, former Brownfield in Wisconsin. 300-acres of Menomonee Valley Brownfield has already been developed. Sigma takes pride in participating in Menomonee Valley and associated Brownfield redevelopment projects, as part of the Valley community and as a business headquartered in the Menomonee Valley on a restored Brownfield site.
