Remarks: $ 250,000 for about 1.4 acres of land in Decorah. Owner is just completing some landscaping on the northern portion for sale and has added in 54 ft of new culvert to assist on stormwater discharge across the tract to the rear of the property where the creek is flowing. Grass seeding is the next step of the project. Lots have a wide range of possibilities on usage, C - 1 & M - 1 zoned. OUTDOOR Cafe / Courtyard Potential !! Flowing Creek on the rear of the lots, hardwood trees are established on the lots. Lots of curb frontage along Paine St. Looking for a Restaurant location, maybe a seasonal location with green space ?? Starting a business with outdoor products, lawn and garden equipment ?? This could be a good fit ! Maybe a winery or micro brewery near Hwy 9 / close to Motels / close to bike trails ?? Small shed on property and contents to be removed by owner before closing. There is a very real housing shortage inside the city limits of Decorah, The city has a 5 year tax abatement for new home construction and new apartments being built, Could be up to $ 40,000 per unit or $ 400,000 of the new, extra assessed value and not taxed for 5 years from the application approval date. One use of this parcel may be as high density housing, Why not take a tour of this parcel and chat a bit with our city administrator about your dreams and ideas / How a tax abatement might apply to new construction??
