Caledonia Will Consider Changes to Land Use Plan

A meeting is not yet set, but a list of proposals is being distributed.

Two significant measures could change Caledonia's land use plan if trustees vote to alter green space requirements and a five-acre minimums.

According to a list (attached to this story) provided by the village, board members will take into consideration reducing the five-acre minimum density for land splits and removing the 40 percent open/green space requirement in all areas with water and sewer.

Additional ideas include:

  • Considering the commercial/industrial possibilities along Highway 32 from 7-Mile Road to the boundary with Oak Creek;
  • Reviewing building types in village centers;
  • Defining the Highway 31 corridor for more commercial use;
  • Plan for commercial development where sewer/water exist;
  • Review of possible uses for the I-94 corridor with or without sewer/water.

Village Administrator Tom Lebak confirmed via email that draft changes to the document are not complete.

Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.

Excellent, I think there are several places on hwy 31 that could be developed.

That sounds great. Next time someone calls our village an wants to plunk down a buisness they should have the option to put it where they want

WRONG T.R.. or should I say NOT.Where do you live? Back in the woods in a nice quiet rich nieghborhood?

Please explain what wrong and not mean in the context of your message. I don't live in a quiet neighborhood either. What that would have to do with the plan?

T.R. What I was trying to say without sounding rude was,is how would you like a business plunked across the street from where you live then get bombared with harassment on a daily basis.Then you find out everytime you call the cops they just turn there heads the other way.

Caledonia green space is a treasure. If we do not fight for it, Chicago to Milwaukee will be as one.

There needs to be a balance between retaining green space and developing and moving forward.... and the highways are the prime and logical places for development.
