Flowing Creek on the rear of the lots, hardwood trees are established on the lots. Lots of curb frontage along Paine St. Looking for a Restaurant location, maybe a seasonal location with green space ?? Starting a business with outdoor products, lawn and garden equipment ?? This could be a good fit ! Maybe a winery or micro brewery near Hwy 9 / close to Motels / close to bike trails ?? Small shed on property and contents to be removed by owner before closing. There is a very real housing shortage inside the city limits of Decorah, The city has a 5 year tax abatement for new home construction and new apartments being built, Could be up to $ 40,000 per unit or $ 400,000 of the new, extra assessed value and not taxed for 5 years from the application approval date. One use of this parcel may be as high density housing, Why not take a tour of this parcel and chat a bit with our city administrator about your dreams and ideas / How a tax abatement might apply to new construction??
