On April 24th, 2018 Governor Scott Walker announced that a 21-acre parcel of land in Eagle River has been designated as a Certified In Wisconsin® development-ready site, a move aimed at attracting corporate development projects to the city. The site, owned by Ruedebusch Development and located near County Highway G and Highway 45 in Vilas County, is the state's 20th Certified Site. The Certified In Wisconsin designation gives site selectors and business owners confidence that building plans will not be held up by costly delays in permitting and approvals. Located two miles north of downtown Eagle River, the site is less than five minutes away from the Eagle River Union Airport, Northland Pines High School, the World Championship Derby Track and Ascension Eagle River Hospital. All utilities are at the lot line, including electric, natural gas, water, sanitary sewer, telecom and internet. A snowmobile/ATV recreation trail runs along the western boundary of the site, providing direct access to year-round activities and alternative modes of employee transportation. The Certified In Wisconsin Program, which is overseen by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), provides potential tenants with all the information needed to make quick decisions about whether that site is right for their needs, such as utility and transportation infrastructure, environmental assessments, quality of available labor force and more. WEDC has utilized Deloitte Consulting to help evaluate potential Certified Sites. WEDC markets each Certified Site through its Locate In Wisconsin website. https://inwisconsin.com/doing-business-in-wisconsin/available-sites/locate-in-wisconsin/ For more information about the Eagle River Certified Site, call Barry McLeane at 715-891-1284
