What's News in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin
Final Plat Approved
On Monday, October 2, the Pleasant Prairie Village Board approved the Final Plat for the development of 45 single family lots to be known as Arbor Ridge. This was originally platted as a condominium development in 2006, but due to the recession it did not develop as planned. In December of 2016 the Village Board approved an amendment to the Prairie Ridge Neighborhood Plan and a Conceptual Plan for 46 single family lots, with a preliminary plat approval on April 17 of this year. The approval of ordinances #17-49 and #17-50 rezoned the 45 lots into the R-4 Urban Single Family Residential District and the three outlots into a Park and Recreational District, and the entire property was rezoned into a Planned Unit Development Overlay (PUD) District. The PUD ordinance sets forth the type of buildings, their location and uses throughout the Arbor Ridge Subdivision. The developer is going to construct all roads as public roadways with water, sanitary, and storm water mains maintained by the Village.
The Arbor Ridge single-family development consists of approximately 27 acres. The single family lots range in size from 10,004 square feet to 24,392 square feet per lot with the average lot size of 15,243 square feet. According to Bear Development, the developer, there will be a mix of single and two-story homes with a minimum size of 1,800 square feet. It is projected that 122 people could live in this subdivision when complete, 19 projected to be public school aged children based on projections from the 2010 Census. As part of the PUD and due to the significant grade changes on some of the lots, there will be specific ordinances in place such as no above ground fences, outbuildings, gazebos, sheds, pools, sports courts, playground equipment, trampolines, swing sets, and plastic storage bins/sheds outside on the lots. Decks and patios that meet the setback requirement will be allowed, as well as underground electric fences for dogs. Tree screening will be installed for privacy. The developer anticipates starting construction in fall 2017 with the project being completed the summer of 2018.
