Now that the proposed $800 million Menominee Tribe and Hard Rock Group casino is never going to happen, Kenosha city officials have their eyes focused firmly on the future.

Jeff Labahn, Kenosha director of community development and inspections, told the Milwaukee Business Journal that the site – which totals some 233 acres, 165 of which are developable – that various developers expressed interest in the property as the casino story played out.

“The site is definitely on people’s radar, no doubt about it,” he is quoted as saying.

Options for the site would almost probably include turning it into a commercial/industrial gateway that invites and encourages other businesses to set up shop in Kenosha, the story continues.
