Future of the Logemann Center Property

Last night, the Mequon Common Council held a special meeting to consider the future of the Logemann Center property. There are two proposals for the site. The Economic Development Board endorsed one of the proposals – a sports bar and restaurant proposed by former Alderman John Leszczynski. A group of local businesspeople (Foxtown Ventures) have proposed a public use, amenity-filled park that would be paid for with private donations to be raised over time.

Primarily based on ongoing concerns over parking in the area, including concerns raised by city staff, the Council spent a lot of time discussing the proposals. A significant number of members of the public provided comments.  

The Council asked that staff try to proceed to make both proposals happen.   You can see the Leszczynski proposal by clicking here and the Foxtown Ventures proposal by clicking here.

  1. Hello John,

    Thank you for the update. I would prefer to see the proposal for the park to move forward. I think proposal for the sports bar/restaurant would add to the already complicated parking situation in the area.

  2. Hi John,
    Thank you for the information. I would like to see the park proposal proceed. With the already increased commercial and residential density, I feel that we have lost trees/green space, experienced insufficient parking, and the increased the traffic on Mequon Road has made it less pedestrian/bike friendly.
