City of Marshfield Wisconsin Seeking Proposals for Purchase and Development

City of Marshfield


The City of Marshfield Planning and Economic Development Department is seeking proposals for the purchase and development of 8.22 acres of real estate located in the southern portion of the city at 29th Street and Peach Avenue. The property offers a unique opportunity for the development of single family homes, as it is already adjacent to an existing single family home development.

Box 727, Marshfield, WI 54449.

  • One bound proposal in color
  • Six copies in black and white
  • One electronic version submitted either on disk or CD-ROM
  • A one-page summary of the proposal that will be used to present the project to the media and the public.
