DELAFIELD - A proposal to build three apartment buildings with underground parking is again up for consideration in Delafield.

The Plan Commission is scheduled to discuss the plans for Village Square Apartments, a project of Madison-based developer J.D. McCormick LLC, during its 7 p.m. meeting Wednesday. The applicant is seeking feedback for an amended conditional use and general development plan that calls for 90 units in three buildings near the Village Square shopping center by Highways 83 and 16.

According to meeting documents, the biggest change in the site plans is regarding the underground entrance, which has been moved to the lotís north side of the lot to eliminate lights shining on neighboring residential properties on Vettelson Road. In addition, the building setback has been increased another 50 feet by rotating the three buildings clockwise on the site.

The building height has also been reduced 3 feet by dropping the buildings into the ground, according to the documents. 

In February, the Common Council voted to deny the Plan Commissionís recommendation to approve the conditional use amendment general development plan after hearing from several neighbors who opposed the project and concerns being raised by aldermen.

The commission will meet in City Hall, 500 Genesee St.
