Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, Inc. and Heartland Properties, Inc., officially broke ground today for the DeNeveu Creek Retirement Community. This new $1.9 million development will be across the street from the Lakeside Park and Marina, located on the south shore of Lake Winnebago.
Located on five acres, the development will offer 24 ground floor apartments for people aged 55 years or better. One building will house 16 one-bedroom units and a separate building will contain eight two-bedroom units. Other amenities will include surface and garage parking, central laundry facilities, and a community room.
The development brings together two community partners. Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, Inc. has operated a skilled nursing facility in Fond du Lac for more than 60 years. Heartland Properties has invested in over 100 affordable housing developments since 1988 and is owned by Alliant Energy.
"We continue to evaluate the need for expanded services in the Fond du Lac community and the partnership with Heartland Properties, Inc. allows us to move forward with DeNeveu Creek Retirement Community; providing additional needed housing services for the community," said Mari Beth Fiandt, Executive Director of the Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, Inc.
Heartland Properties donated $75,000 to purchase the land site, which allowed the development to meet match requirements for a State of Wisconsin, Division of Housing HOME Loan.
"We are thrilled to be involved in this project," said Barb Siehr, Alliant Energy general manager of operations - East. "Our goal is to provide quality affordable housing for communities in our service territory. This property will not only meet a need for the senior citizens of Fond du Lac, but will also provide a place that residents are proud to call home and neighbors are proud to have next door."
Another unique aspect to this development is the installation and use of a computer area for residents. Internet-ready computers will be installed allowing residents to log-in and go on-line for information or send e-mails to friends around the world. Knowing that not everyone is comfortable with computers, computer training will be on both a group and individual basis.
DeNeveu Creek is scheduled for completion in August of this year. People interested in more information about the development or the apartments should contact Oakbrook Corporation at (920) 924-4449.
Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit entity that has provided loving Christian care to families of all faiths throughout the area for over 60 years.
Heartland Properties, Inc. is a proud member of the Alliant Energy family of companies.
