BEND - After its three-day weekend, West Bend government
will have a lot on its hands, from cats to building
The city’s Plan Commission meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday to
consider a plan of a 144-unit, multi-family residential
complex south of the intersection of West Progress Drive
and Sylvan Way.
Development LLC of Watertown submitted the plan.
The plan “is somewhat consistent” with what is laid out
for that area in the city’s comprehensive plan, City
Planner Mark Piotrowicz said.
The comprehensive plan lays out areas for two- and
multi-family housing at the site. This proposal would
combine those into multifamily units. “(The developers)
are asking for an acknowledgment that the use and
density that they’re proposing is acceptable to the
city,” Piotrowicz said.
If the city endorses the plan, there would be steps
involved, including a formal amendment, applying
permanent zoning to the property, creating the lots and
dedicating the road and a formal site plan approval.
The city will also hold public hearings. “At the
earliest, this is a 2016 development,” Piotrowicz said.
