Potawatomi Among Developers For Dairyland Site

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — The Forest County Potawatomi Community plans to transform the former dog track in Kenosha into a mixed-use development of apartments, offices and industrial buildings.

The Potawatomi tribe is working with Milwaukee developer Zilber Property Group on the project at the former 240-acre Dairyland Greyhound Park along Interstate 94. Construction of 360 apartments, three office buildings and a business park could start this summer.

The dog track property has not been used since 2009. Years ago, the Potawatomi opposed the Menominee Indian Tribe and Hard Rock International’s plan to build a casino complex. The state rejected the casino project in 2015.
