OCONOMOWOC — The developer’s agreement for the third and
final phase of the Hickorywood Farms subdivision was
approved by the Oconomowoc Common Council Tuesday night,
furthering the expansion of the booming city.
Hickorywood Farms III will feature 55 single- family
residential lots ranging from 10,697 square feet to
18,524 square feet at an average lot size of 14,000
square feet, according to city documents. It will be
located just north of the first two Hickorywood Farm
developments off of Valley Road and will connect Mamerow
Lane West to Mamerow Lane East.
Planner/Administrator Jason Gallo previously said the
subdivision’s entrance would be on the north side of
Valley Road, west of Golden Lake Road and east of Morgan
Road. Gallo also previously explained that the lots will
be to the south of the Oconomowoc River. Gallo said the
closest residential lot to the river will be more than
300 feet from the water.
city memo issued this past spring had said the amount of
land the project must dedicate for parkland under a city
ordinance hadn’t met the requirement. Since then, the
developer’s plan to dedicate 49 acres toward a future
bike and pedestrian trail has been approved by the
Oconomowoc Parks & Recreation Board.
Alderman Charlie Shaw asked if homeowners in that area
would be off the hook for payment should existing road
be damaged during the development.
Oconomowoc Director of Public Works Mark Frye said the
homeowners would not be held liable for road damage.
Condominiums approved at Pabst Farms
Common Council also approved the developer’s agreement
for Village Crossing Condominiums, which will consist of
14 condominiums in seven ranch-style side-by-side
condominiums will be built in the southeast side of the
city, south of Valley Road and west of Gold Medal Drive.
Though the council approved the developer’s agreement
for Village Crossing Condominiums, Alderman Tom Strey
did express caution.
“We’re getting top heavy on these multifamily deals
again,” Strey said.
