With help from the county, Wyndmere plans to undergo a major renovation to their downtown area. On the corner of Ash Ave. and 4th St. an empty lot waits for a new project.

Earlier this year Wyndmere Mayor Nathan Brandt heard reports of kids playing on the roofs of the old buildings on the corner. Recognizing the safety concern, given the age of the buildings, Brandt and the city council decided it was time to get some new buildings in that space. In total the lot is around 250 feet by 275 feet.
