The Wild Fire Harley-Davidson owner Anthony "Ozzie" Giglio aims to build 20,000 square feet of retail and 10,000 square feet of restaurant space on land next to his bike dealership at 120 W. North Ave.
The project was made possible by a joint effort between Giglio
and the village to assemble the needed land from separate owners.
Each party acquired three properties, which include five residences and a lot with a billboard.
The village will pay nearly $1 million for its purchases and the building demolitions on behalf of Giglio, in lieu of funneling the incremental increases in property taxes back to the developer after the project is complete.
Attempts to contact Giglio
for comment were unsuccessful.
