On Monday, February 16th the City of Sun Prairie will be hosting an open house to kick off its efforts to update the land use plan governing the growth and development of its Westside Neighborhood. The doors will open at 6:00 pm, and various opportunities will be provided for individuals to share their ideas, concerns and opinions about potential development in the area.
The City is considering changes to the land use plan for the area bounded by Main Street, Grand Avenue, and Hwy 151. The adopted plan for this area calls for a mix of residential, office, and smaller-scale/mixed-use commercial development. However, questions about the viability of the current plan have been raised recently as a result of changing market conditions, more current information about environmental features in the area, and a recent development proposal from a large-format retailer.
