WAUKESHA — Developer David
Belman of Belman Homes is proposing a 55-unit residential
development off Oakdale Drive, south of Glendale Road, in the Town
Dubbed “Pebble Brook Hollow,” the development would be nestled
amidst the existing subdivisions of Poppy Fields and Hazlehurst and
consist of 19 residential lots and 36 condominiums.
The residences would reportedly start at $480,000 and go up to
$850,000, with the average sale price of all residences being
$554,540, a proposal states.
In order to move forward, the project will need a conditional use
permit, as well as a planned unit development (PUD) permit.
The town’s Plan Commission is slated to consider requests for both
items during a joint meeting with the Town Board at 6:30 p.m. on
Thursday at the Town Hall off Center Road. A public hearing will be
held before the Commission begins discussion on the matter.
In a staff review document contained in the packet for the meeting,
the town’s planning consultant, Shaun Mularkey, recommends
commissioners approve the conditional use and PUD permits, as
long as the developer submits to roughly 17 conditions. Among the
those conditions are requirements that the residential lots be at
least 33,788 square feet and the condominium have a minimum building
separation of 20 feet, as well as a rear offset of 20 feet. Another
condition also requires that Pebble Brook Court — a private road
that is slated to be constructed on the property — will be built to
According to Belman’s proposal, the development would increase
traffic on Oakdale Road by about 10 percent, adding around 390
weekday trips to a road that currently handles around 4,000 trips
Belman also notes that the development plan for the 117-acre site
would leave 56 percent of the land as open space.
The proposal also claims that the value of the homes in the
development would be 26 percent higher than the average home in the
Poppy Fields subdivision, and 62 percent higher than the average
home in the Hazlehurst development, which would increase the value
to all the homes in the area.
Attempts to reach the developer on Friday were unsuccessful.
