The Monona Council discussed the potential development of lot 19 of the Gordon Subdivision at its regular meeting Jan. 9.
Currently one large lot located between Highway 18 and residential property along Darby Drive, it was recently considered as a potential site for a Dollar General store. Now, said city administrator Dan Canton, there has been talk of subdividing the land into smaller lots (perhaps five) to form a cul de sac.
The question, Canton noted, is how the lot can best be developed for residential use and how to pay for the infrastructure. One way, he said, is through tax increment financing (TIF).
