DELAFIELD Ė During its meeting Wednesday, the Delafield Plan
Commission agreed to hold a public hearing on multi-family
buildings proposed for Wells Street, but commissioners also
expressed some concerns about the project.
Mayor Ed McAleer said the commission moved to hold a public
hearing, which will likely be scheduled for the last Wednesday
in April. Questions and concerns raised about the project
included the height and density of the project, he said.
According to documents filed with the city, the Wells Street
Station would include two three-story buildings on a 1.82-acre
location off of Wells Street and Lake Street. The proposed
buildings are a total of 22,058 square feet in size. The project
would have a total green space ratio of 46.5 percent. The plan
includes 112 parking stalls, including 16 for guests. The
apartments would include one or two bedrooms.
McAleer said the developer, HSI Properties, made it clear
reducing the size or scope of the project isnít an option
because the density is needed to financially support the
ďI donít think there is going to be room for negotiating,Ē he
Also at the meeting, the Plan Commission denied a request to
divide a lake parcel at 34352 Valley Road into two lots because
of size restrictions. The request was also sent to the city
attorney for clarification on the zoning ordinance because it
was stated by the applicant that the ordinance allowed for the
split. McAleer said he anticipates the item being on the April 7
Common Council agenda.
The Plan Commission approved temporary business plans of
operation for Clearwater Outdoor and Glacier Springs Adventure
Company to provide rental equipment in St. Johnís Park during
the summer months.
