Possible annexation of Safro Toyota moves forward

Special to The Freeman

BROOKFIELD – The Brookfield Plan Commission approved a step in the process of annexing the Safro Toyota on Capitol Drive into the city.

During the Monday meeting, the Plan Commission approved establishing a temporary zoning of about 19-and-a-half acres of land as part of the “light industrial/commercial mixed-use district no. 1” zoning district.
The temporary zoning needs to be approved by the Common Council.

Jeanne Safro of Jack Safro Toyota, Inc. told the Town of Brookfield she wanted to construct a new Toyota store at 20805 and 20725 W. Capitol Drive, and in order to be able to build a new store, they would need to obtain municipal water and sanitary sewer service.

The annexation would not affect the town’s incorporation process because it was not included in the town’s proposed incorporate borders, Town Administrator Rick Czopp said. The process hasn’t advanced recently, he said.
