Tuesdays with the Mayor
By Taylor Hale
STEVENS POINT – Mayor Mike Wiza sat down with Gazette staff to give an update on Stevens Point developments. Wiza touched on the city removing trailers, a North Side Yard update and more.
The city has crews removing mobile homes from the Four Season Trail Park in Stevens Point due to unsafe living conditions.
“We gave the owner of the park an ultimatum to fix them or we would have to tear them down. They were not fixed, so we have to move forward,” Wiza said.
Wiza crews started the tear down on Jan. 7. The trailers created a public health issue and the demolition was necessary for the safety of the residents living at the location.
North Side Yard
The North Side Yard apartment complex is slated to open on Feb. 1. The new complex is located at 1060 Centerpoint Dr., in Stevens Point.
The upscale dwelling has great views, downtown access, and a common space on each floor. Wiza noted that some of the rooms in the complex have already been claimed by tenants, and he expects the building to fill quickly, with some move-ins happening on Jan. 15.

Wiza announced that he is working with Maui County Mayor Michael P. Victorino to build a connection between the two communities.
The two mayors signed a proclamation declaring January as Maui-Stevens Point Connected Communities Month, which will become an annual celebration. The project was made possible by Sentry Insurance, connecting the two communities via the Sentry Tournament of Champions golf event.
The new connection sees Sentry aiding Maui residents by supporting area charities, creating a scholarship program for graduates of Maui County public high schools, and more.
