Board approves zone change for future development

Menomonee Falls - Following a public hearing with no residential objection, the Menomonee Falls Village Board on Monday approved rezoning land on the southeast corner of Lily and Mill roads to a planned residential development district.

The northern half of this land has been located in a single family residential district and the southern half has been located in the light industrial district since 1973.

Village staff does not believe this land will ever be developed into a quality industrial park as it is competing with the Westbrook Corporate Center, according to village documents. Therefore, the zone change was requested and approved.

Germantown renews contract with assessment firm

Germantown - The Village Board on Monday voted to renew its agreement with Accurate Appraisal for a three-year term. The Menasha-based firm has been providing property assessments on behalf of the village in recent years.

The last villagewide assessment occurred in 2008, and plans call for having the next one in 2015.

Jim Danielson, owner of the firm, said Accurate Appraisal serves 96 municipalities across the state and does not have any outstanding issues with the state Department of Revenue.

Village OKs removal of trail from condo plans

Germantown - A proposed paved trail system has been removed from plans associated with the Seven Pines condominium development, N9974 Seven Pines Way.

The development, first announced in 2003, had called for the trail system on the periphery of the property. But a combination of factors - including the demise of the original developer and the cost of the project - resulted in the proposal being removed. Seven Pines' condominium association manages the property, and most of its members favor scrapping the trail system.

Village OKs extending Patton Court

Germantown - The Village Board on Monday gave conceptual approval to a planned extension of North Patton Court.

As proposed, the extension would take place on the northern end of the roadway and create an additional three lots. Money in the village's Tax Incremental Financing District No. 4 would fund the project.

Further plans - including specific dollar amounts - will be brought back to the board at a later date.

"I personally think it's the way to go," Village Administrator David Schornack said. "It divides this area up into four really nice lots."
