The architectural style of the campus has also been included in the agreement, along with the requirements for utility needs and dedications for public improvements such as future fire stations and a water tower.

The public meeting to discuss the proposed amendments and conceptual development plan will be held Monday evening, March 26, 2007 at 5:00pm in the Pleasant Prairie Village Hall auditorium located at 9915 39th Avenue, Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin 53158.
