St. Croix Falls advances plan to build 12 houses on St. Croix riverfront

The plan was altered to move some houses further back from the riverfront and add protections for wetlands.

A plan to build 12 houses on the St. Croix River was advanced Tuesday by the St. Croix Falls Plan Commission, which voted 5-1 to recommend the project to the City Council.

The project from Stillwater-based developer GreenHalo Builds would break with federal protections established by the federal Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the 1968 law that urges local municipalities to preserve and protect the natural character of rivers under its purview, including the St. Croix.
