NEW BERLIN —
Several projects approved last year will be completed this summer
while others start to break ground, including six residential
developments and subdivisions across New Berlin.
This year’s new
developments and construction projects are on par with previous
years, but city officials are also busy reviewing applications and
approving other large projects that will be completed in the next
projects, the city recently purchased 20 acres of land that will be
used in a planned park complex between a Section 35 residential area
and South Moorland Road Corridor.

of ongoing and recently approved projects in New Berlin, according
to the city’s website.

Incremental District (TID) is set for approval next week at a Joint
Review Board meeting. TID 3 will be mixed use, but predominately

agriculture. Small Road, College Avenue and Moorland Road would
