I have not yet taken office (that will occur on Tuesday, April 19), so I will not be voting on the matters described below, but I said that I would provide more communication, and there is no better time to start than now.
Here is what the City is doing this week:
This evening at 7:00 p.m., the Mequon Planning Commission holds its April meeting. Highlights include applications for:
- Two room additions to each of the following schools: Donges Bay Elementary School, Oriole Lane Elementary School and Wilson Elementary School
- A 35,239 square foot memory care center (Artis Senior Living) for 72 residents on the parcel immediately north of the Mequon Fire Department on Port Washington Road.
- Additional signage and artwork on the new Café Hollander building in the Town Center.
- Technical approvals (fill, sewer and so forth) for the next phase of The Enclave at Mequon Preserve, the new subdivision south of Brighton Ridge and Knightsbridge Estates. This application does not change the zoning or lot sizes of the already approved subdivision.
- A nine home, single family condominium development on 10+ acres of land south of 11104 Oriole Lane. This item is not scheduled to be considered by the Common Council until May at the earliest.
- Removal of 2.5 acres from the Sarah Chudnow Campus. This item is not scheduled to be considered by the Common Council until May at the earliest.
- A produce stand on Farmdale Road.
There are also a couple of other less interesting applications on the agenda.
More information about all of these applications can be found by clicking here.
On Tuesday evening, the Common Council will hold its April monthly meeting. Highlights include:
- Item 4 above.
- A request by Kohler Credit Union to change its zoning to allow for more diverse tenant uses in the building. Both planning staff and the Planning Commission (unanimously) recommended against the rezoning requested.
- An ordinance to make Mequon’s ordinances regarding hunting with a bow and arrow or crossbow consistent with state law.
- Approval of crack sealing in certain areas of the city, including in the 4th district parts of Huntington Park, Donges Bay Road, County Line Road, Wasaukee Road, the Industrial Park, Mequon Trail Townhouses and Windsor Estates.
More information about all of these matters can be found by clicking here.
Also, the City’s Public Welfare Committee will be reviewing a few provisions of the City’s Ethics Code on Tuesday.
Although I cannot vote on these matters this month, I will be following them carefully. Of course, please provide comments to me or to any elected official.
