read with interest in the June 29 issue of the News Graphic
concerning Arrabelle to be built in Cedarburg. The article stated
that “there are several components in the works and the goal is to
get started as soon as possible.” Do you have any idea why clearing
of the land and construction has not started?
A. According to
Cedarburg Planner Jon Censky, the reason why no work has begun on
the Arrabelle project, planned for the former St. Francis Borgia
school and rectory property, is because the developer still needs to
obtain approvals on several project-related plans, including
exterior lighting, landscaping and stormwater management.
A permit will
not be issued until all of these plans have been reviewed and
approved. Additionally, the developer is still in the process of
obtaining financing for the project.
would be to keep an eye on the (city meeting) agendas, that will let
people know when this project is scheduled for any action,” Censky
said. “They are not on any future agendas now, but that can change
and could be coming up shortly.”
Properties LLC received architectural approval for the project in
July. The plan calls for two apartment buildings, nine townhomes and
a single-family lot on Hamilton Road east of Washington Avenue.
While no date is
set for work to start on the project, Censky estimated it’s likely
construction activity would start this summer once the approval
process is completed.
