WEST BEND ó Elected city leaders
this week tied up a few remaining agreements surrounding an
under-construction project to build a new Fleet Farm retail outlet
on West Bendís far west side.
Common Council members on Monday approved a development agreement
that laid out terms for construction and installation of, among
other things, underground utilities and street lights for the
massive new store near the corner of State Highway 33 and County Z.
Work on the new store, slated to measure about 190,000 square feet
when all said and done, continued this week. Plans have called for
the store to open by later this year.
West Bend City Administrator Jay Shambeau said the city is hoping to
redevelop the retailerís existing outlet, also along Highway 33 but
closer to West Bendís downtown, at the corner of 18th Street.
The city in September approved a site plan for the new project,
which is also expected to include a nearby gas station, auto shop
and convenience outlet. The city earlier this year also approved a
certified map tied to the development.
Mondayís action met conditions set out in both the site plan and
map, which called for the city to eventually approve a developerís
agreement for the project, said Jim Reinke, business and development
planner for West Bend.
