Oshkosh headquarters proposal advances


As expected, the city’s Plan Commission and its Advisory Park Board put their stamp of approval Monday evening on a plan to sell about 35 acres of Lakeshore Municipal Golf Course to Oshkosh Corp. for use as its new headquarters.

Before voting the two boards heard from about a dozen speakers, all in favor of the plan.

The parks board voted 5-3 in favor. The plan board voted 7-0 in favor.

The Common Council will meet Wednesday to consider the proposal.
