BROOKFIELD – Soerens Ford is seeking permission from the city to put a 19,982-square-foot expansion onto its existing automotive dealership at 18900 W. Capitol Drive.

An information meeting on the dealership’s request will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday in the City Hall Council Chambers, 2000 N. Calhoun Road.

The request requires approval of a special exception ordinance and amendment, according to the meeting posting.

Included in the proposal is an increase in parking area green space via installation of landscape medians; parking lot landscape medians of 18 feet and 25 feet in width; installation of a pedestrian connection from Brookfield Road to Schlossman’s Dodge City with pedestrian benches; reduction in area of the fenced vehicle service/storage area; installation of landscaping along the north property line to screen views from neighbors; and an existing gravel area will be seeded.

The meeting is an open house and no presentation will be made. Representatives from Soerens Ford will be present to answer questions about the project, as will city staff.
