TOWN OF WAUKESHA — Belman Homes has bought 88 acres of land off Oakdale Drive with the plan to build 40 homes.

Belman Homes President David Belman said the 40 homes will be placed on three-quarter acres to 1.2 acres in size and there will be open space for the native wetlands called Pebble Brook Hollow.

The new subdivision will be constructed with well and septic systems.

“Its rolling terrain is suitable for exposed lower levels and has some very spectacular views of the Vernon Marsh,” Belman said in an email.

He said the company plans to submit preliminary plans to the Town of Waukesha this spring, and he hopes construction could start in late summer or early fall depending on the weather and the approval process.

The acreage off Oakdale Drive includes wetlands, mature trees, the Pebble Brook stream and abuts conservancy land owned by Waukesha County.

“We would like to incorporate a picnic area and a few nature trails in the development,” Belman said. “I have lived my whole life in the Town of Waukesha and greatly enjoy creating more home sites for families in my hometown.”
