Sugar Creek redevelopment goes to Verona Common Council

VERONA, WISC. (excerpts from The Verona Press) – A proposal to redevelop the former Sugar Creek Elementary School land is headed to the Common Council for a key vote.

The development, would include the construction of 140 market rate apartments, 110 workforce housing apartments and 10,000 square feet of commercial space on more than 12 acres just west of downtown Verona.

At the Monday, Oct. 5, Plan Commission meeting, commissioners unanimously recommended the Common Council approve the general development plan and rezoning the property. The council is expected to review it Monday, Oct 12.

 
 

The GDP is the second public phase of a three-step process, but it is the most important, as approval would grant the developer the right to build the project as long as it is substantially similar to what’s in the plan. This project, however, likely will require a commitment of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding, its developers have said, and that would require a separate approval.
