Ahead of what promised to be a contentious community conversation next Tuesday, the city of New Richmond announced in a news release late Thursday afternoon that Immigration Centers of America (ICA) had withdrawn its application to rezone 20 acres west of the city to build a 500 bed detention center intended to detain undocumented immigrants.
The city of New Richmond has scheduled a community conversation for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23 at WITC to publicly discuss an application by Immigration Centers of America (ICA) to rezone20-plus acres of private property west of the St. Croix Correctional Center to build a detention facility to house undocummented immigrants detained on behalf of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). The facility would be approximately 166,000 square feet with 500 beds and is anticipated to employ 200 individuals.
In a development that is sure to generate debate in New Richmond, the city announced in a press release late Friday afternoon, April 5, that it has received a rezoning request from Immigration Centers of America to rezone a parcel of land west of the St. Croix Correctional Center to allow for the construction of a detention center through the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Program.

High-speed internet, or broadband, has become a vital utility in our lives. One that could arguably be grouped with electricity, water and sewer; however, if you live in a rural area, this near necessity isn't available. Broadband access is a topic I avidly follow. I raise goats for meat for the cultural and local foods markets.
