TOWN OF BROOKFIELD —A special Plan Commission meeting Tuesday will address the final approvals for the residential and commercial units and parking structure of the upscale development The Corners.

Gary Lake, town development services administrator, said the Architectural Control committee recently recommended approval of the final architecture and landscaping plans for the development’s multiple components, but with conditions. Those conditions included reducing the amount of stucco on the exterior of the residential portion of The Corners, which will be built near the intersection of Barker and Bluemound roads. Lake said the revised renderings are due at Town Hall this afternoon.

The special Plan Commission meeting to discuss the revised plans will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday at Town Hall, 645 N. Janacek Road.

During the regular Town Board meeting Tuesday, Lake said the board reaffirmed a recommendation to approve an amendment to the town’s master plan and the Waukesha County Development Plan to change the land use category for 7.45 acres of currently vacant land along Jennifer Drive, west of Poplar Creek and north of Bluemound Road, from the commercial category to the mixed-use category.

During Tuesday’s meeting, the Town Board also scheduled a joint public hearing with the Plan Commission and board on the land use change for July 28.
