The Town of Algoma welcomes new businesses to locate in the town. The Town’s focus is on attracting small retailers, commercial businesses, service providers, along with some housing. There are several parcels of land for sale throughout Algoma. Many of the parcels that are for sale are located along Omro Road and STH 21. Along with several smaller properties, there are two larger parcels of land for sale in the Town of Algoma that offer opportunities for mixed-use development, including recreational, business, and housing.
To ensure each request for information on a building or parcel of land in Algoma is handled appropriately, the Town seeks assistance from the Oshkosh Area Chamber of Commerce and Greater Oshkosh Economic Development Corporation. Both organizations manage a wide-range of business development tools. Their staff will work with each person who inquires about establishing a business in Algoma to ensure they have all of the information and resources necessary to make a educated decision on their future business plans.
