BROOKFIELD — The construction timetable for
a mosque, annexation of land and the future of Ruby Farms are
just a few of the items on Monday’s Plan Commission agenda.
The Islamic Foundation of Greater Milwaukee is requesting
approval of a revised construction completion schedule and
potential revised plan and method of operation in association
with construction of a 12,950-square-foot mosque at 16670
The commission will also consider the request from BLR Inc. and
Ursula Willkomm to annex approximately 27 acres of lands from
the Town of Brookfield, located north of Gumina Road and west of
the intersection of Capitol Drive and Gumina Road. According to
the agenda, the commission would recommend establishing a
temporary zoning of these lands as part of the “light
industrial-commercial mixed-use district No. 1” zoning district.
Plans for the redevelopment of the former Ruby Farms may move
forward after Monday’s meeting, if the commission approves
holding a public hearing for a planned development general
plan-mixed use district, conditional use for floodplain
modification and amend floodplain boundaries associated with
developing The Corridor, an approximately 50-acre mixed-use
development that would contain approximately 785,000 square feet
of retail, office, hospitality, medical, wellness or residential
uses. The Ruby farm home would be preserved, according to the
Mark Regal is requesting a public hearing on a plan to build 114
housing units and rezone approximately 61 acres of lands
surrounding the lake formed by a former quarry on Burleigh Road.
A previous plan to turn the site into a place for the Wisconsin
Department of Transportation to dump clean fill from the Zoo
Interchange was taken off the table in December.
Also on the agenda is possible approval of a development
agreement with an approved new plan and method of operation
permitting construction of an approximately 77,500square-foot
automobile dealership at Safro Toyota, 20445 West Capitol Drive.
If the commission approves these items, they would then require
Common Council approval to proceed.
The meeting will be held 6:30 p.m. Monday at City Hall, 2000 N.
