Dairyland Greyhound Park in Kenosha sold to developer

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) -- The former dog racing track in Kenosha that's been vacant for nearly a decade has been sold to a developer.

Rime Investments plans to turn the 225-acre site into an industrial and mixed-use business park. TODAY'S TMJ4's partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal report the parcel was sold for $14.5 million.

The shuttered Dairyland Greyhound Park was in the headlines in 2015 when Gov. Scott Walker denied the Menominee Nation's request to build an off-reservation casino at the site.

That decision was not only upsetting to the Menominee, but to many locals and elected officials. The Menominee had partnered with Hard Rock International to develop the casino and entertainment complex.
