. We are enjoying a wonderfully busy forth quarter with business planned into next year...taking time to be a little social ...plugging in to our networks ...updating mailing lists...etc....the routine systems maintenance of running a business...and keeping it running.
It came to our attention...that a "creative" developer has plans for a huge apartment complex that will impact parts of three cities..literally our own backyard being one of them. The west side of the street that is behind our house is in New Berlin and Waukesha county. the east side of the street is Milwaukee county and the cities vary traveling north and south including Hales Corners and Greenfield. Because of the size of the lots and property boundaries...there are some homes that have part of their lots in more than one city.
There is a winding "path" of wooded land that extends from 124th Street at the 5000 block south and continues east. You can see the clearings as you travel east down Edgerton Avenute from 124th Street to 108th Street. The woods provides a natural backdrop for the surrounding homes ....and is home to a variety of wildlife as well.
The proposed Senior apartment development called "The Grove" would destroy 12.5 acres of this peaceful wooded area...and create traffic congestion....mix the use of the now quiet single family area with rental property and we believe as a result...depreciate the value of the homes in the area that are very well kept and homeowners enjoy the solace and natural beauty that currently exists.
Renderings have been done but at this juncture, the required rezoning and public hearings have not begun. We see it as our obligation to make residents of the area aware of this possible impact and make their voices heard to prevent this plan from endangering their property values.
The first mailing hit the mail box this weekend for the residents of Country Estates (our subdivision) and neighboring subdivision, Nicolet Woods. We will continue to penetrate the neighboring communities of Hales Corners and Greenfield with snail mail as well as thru Social Media and neighborhood facebook groups. Residents have inveted hundreds of thousands of dollars in building and maintaining homes in this area and need to make their voices heard.
We contacted the Alderman in Greenfield for the district in which the planned development would be built. He was not in favor of this construction that the residents see as DESTRUCTION. His recommendation was to have residents address concerns to:
