MUKWONAGO — During a meeting today, the Village Board will vote to approve a traffic impact analysis for a proposed road that would connect the village’s Tax Incremental Finance District #5 to Highway 83, according to Village Administrator John Weidl.

Mukwonago officials have been searching for businesses to inhabit their new industrial park, located on the Sugden Farms property just south of the Highway 83 and 43 interchanges near Wolf Run and Dewey Drive.

With a new industrial park comes new tenants, employees and therefore added vehicles to the area. The proposed cross section is just another element of TIF District #5 and before an intersection is constructed, the village must fund a TIA to determine what kind of signage and road design would be required for this area.

The village is investing approximately $12 million in the industrial park, which is a 115-acre area containing nine sites that range in size between 3.5 acres and 20 acres, according to Weidl.

Village officials estimate the park will produce $60 to $80 million in taxable development, $18 million to $20 million in tax revenue to fund the industrial park and 900 to 1,500 jobs over 20 years, according to Weidl.

The industrial park has not been constructed but Weidl said the park will have all utilities in place by Dec. 31, 2018.

This means the park would have roads, streetlights, gas, water, sewer and other utilities in place before companies move in.

The board will meet immediately following the Committee of the Whole meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in Mukwonago Village Hall, 440 Rivercrest Court.
