FDL County Committee Looks At Student Housing Proposal

A Fond du Lac County Board committee tonight will decide whether to recommend to the board hiring a developer and approving an operating agreement for construction of student housing on the UW-Fond du Lac campus. Director of Administration Erin Gerred says hey also hope to discuss a lease agreement at tonight’s meeting. MDC and MPEG will be the developers, Tri North Construction will do the construction and BMOC or Best Management on Campus would run the housing. She says they’d like to break ground on the project soon. She says that would allow them to enclose the structure before winter and have to housing ready for the fall of 2017. The building would be three stories tall and accommodate 122 beds. Gerred says input they’ve received on the housing has generally been positive. The committee meets at 6 p.m. in Room H of the City-County Government Center in Fond du Lac.
