CEDARBURG — On
the heels of its recent creation, city of Cedarburg officials
are in the process of naming members to a newly formed panel
dedicated to economic growth within the community.
Council on Nov. 30 appointed seven people to the community
development authority, a body that will take up an assortment of
issues around the overarching theme of economic development. The
council in mid-September created an ordinance that officially
formed the CDA.
Two of the
seven members — Mayor Kip Kinzel and Alderman Mitch Regenfuss —
will represent the Common Council. Dale Lythjohan, general
manager of Cedarburg Light & Water, also has been named to the
residents with business backgrounds also are joining the CDA:
Eric Arvold, senior vice president and client service director
with Columbia Wanger Asset Management, and Andy Dettro, a
commercial real estate developer.
the panel are two sitting members of the city’s separate, but
related, Economic Development Board: Joe Kassander and Eric
Stelter, both of whom operate businesses in the community.
timetable was not revealed for the CDA’s first meeting, but it
will likely occur at some point early in 2016.
