The New Ulm Sausage Shop was being demolished this (WED) morning. The business had been located at the corner of 3rd North and Broadway in New Ulm since 1983, but closed this past April. The lot was purchased by AMPI in 2010, whose corporate offices adjoin the property. One-third of the lot will now be used for AMPI parking, and two-thirds will become a green space, with grass, trees and shrubs being planted. AMPI Communications Director Sarah Schmitz says the parking lot portion of the project will likely be done still this year, but the green space planting will wait until the spring. The demolition of the building was expected to be completed today.
