Packers now own more than 62 acres near Lambeau

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers now own more than 62 acres of land around Lambeau Field.

Ownership shows up under five names: Green Bay Packers Inc., Lambeau Field Redevelopment, Green Bay Development LLC, 1141 Lombardi LLC and 1177 Lombardi LLC.

Tax assessments total $44.89 million, most of which is paid by the team. Tenants may pay the taxes in some instances.

The Packers are buying land as part of a long-term strategy to provide the team with non-football sources of income. Their plan is to create a retail, entertainment and sports district.

Team spokesman Aaron Popkey says they are still looking at concepts for the land.
