According to City Manager Michael Young, as of Thursday, Nov. 4, the Wolverine Tannery demolition of significant structures was “officially over” with the exception of the wastewater treatment plant and existing shoe store. The existing shoe store will remain and open for business until the new shoe and apparel store at the southern end of the property is ready to open.
Over the next several weeks, contractors will remove remaining rubble and debris and bring in fill to raise the site. The focus is now on cleanup and redevelopment of the property, Young stated.
