Waukesha State Bank looking to come onto Woodman's property
Would join Culver's, which was recently approved
Waukesha State Bank is looking to join Culver's as the next development on a Woodman's outlot in Waukesha.
The Plan Commission will hear a request at its meeting Wednesday for preliminary plans from the developers of the 4,950-square-foot bank, which would be located at 1640 E. Main St.
A 4,035-square-foot Culver's restaurant was recently approved at 1650 E. Main on Lot 6, north of E. Main St. and west of Highway 164.
It will move from its nearby location at 1720 Highway 164 where it is currently surrounded by two car dealerships.
Gary Beres, who owns the Culver's on Highway 164 and also at 840 W. Sunset Drive, said in July a move to the Woodman's lot would allow better access for customers and a way to build a newer model.
The Culver's at 1720 Highway 164 has been at this location for 15 years.
City of Waukesha Planner Jennifer Andrews said the 34-acre Woodman's property (which opened earlier this summer) can have up to eight outlots.
The Woodman's gas station, also on the property, opened last week.
Also on the agenda for Wednesday is the final approval of the proposed Meijer development on the southeast corner of Tenny Avenue and E. Sunset Drive.
In addition, Alderman Steve Johnson has made a referral to the Plan Commission to remove the gas station from the plans and to restrict Meijer's hours of operation from 24 hours.
It's no surprise he's making this request as Johnson said he wanted to eliminate those two aspects of the project at a July 24 Plan Commission meeting.
Brian Randall, Meijer's attorney, has said those components are part of the supercenter's offering. Meijer would build a 192,940-square-foot supercenter and a 2,509-square-foot gas station on 29 acres of land.
After the Plan Commission gave the project the go-ahead earlier this summer, the Common Council changed the land-use plan from residential to commercial and then rezoned the land. These changes allowed the Meijer project to move forward at the city level.
The approvals, however, have been against what the nearby neighbors want as many have voiced their concerns at meetings since it was first introduced in the spring. A group had also filed a protest petition with the city.
Neighbors have indicated that they won't stop fighting this development.
Also on the agenda is a request from the Randle-Dable Funeral Home to approve a conditional use permit to allow a crematorium at its funeral home at 1110 S. Grand Ave.
Passages Cremation Services is requesting that the Plan Commission consider changing the comprehensive plan and land use plan for the property at 1120 S. Grand Avenue, located at the northwest corner of S. Grand Avenue and Hoover Avenue, from Commercial to Institutional.
The Plan Commission meets at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 201 Delafield St.
