During Monday’s Village Board meeting, Trustee Ann
Wallschlager’s vote remained consistent with previous votes
against the Riverwalk Apartments proposed for downtown Hartland.
The five other trustees voted in favor of the site and building
plans, as modified, for the three-building apartment
Riverwalk Apartments on East Capitol Drive would include two
buildings containing only apartments, while a third would have
retail on the first floor and residential on the second. Some
Hartland residents have raised concerns at previous meetings
about the density of the project and its possible effect on
Village Administrator David Cox said the next major step for the
project involves an agreement on tax incremental financing
assistance and related development agreement. He said the
Village Board has indicated its willingness to create a TIF
district for supporting this project.
Also at Monday’s meeting, the Village Board looked favorably
upon a request from Clark and Joy Vilter for the village to
annex the 53 acres they own in the Town of Merton, which would
become the Four Winds West, a subdivision with 48 single-family
lots, Cox said.
The final action on the request will take place in about a
month, after the related land use plan amendment and sewer
service area amendment have been addressed.
