Back to News
On Monday, June 17, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission and, subsequently, the Pleasant Prairie Village Board considered and approved the creation of a new zoning district to accommodate production, manufacturing, assembly, office, and research and development uses in the Village. The new M-5 Production Manufacturing District is intended to help promote the creation of more intensive land uses with the ultimate goal of encouraging more high quality job growth and increasing the number of new jobs per acre in the area.
Three areas adjacent to LakeView Corporate Park have been identified for reclassification into the new district: properties generally located west of Green Bay Road and North of Sprinbgrook Road; properties generally located east of I-94 between 110th and 122nd Streets; and properties located west of I-94 at approximately the 11300 block of 120th Avenue (West Frontage Road).
“We expect the new zoning district to be a wonderful compliment to existing development within LakeView Corporate Park and other areas of the Village,” explained Jean Werbie-Harris, Community Development Director for the Village of Pleasant Prairie. “Our goal since incorporating in April of 1989 has always been to strike a sustainable and healthy balance between the different levels of development within the Village, be it residential, commercial, industrial or recreational. We believe the diversity contributes to a stronger, longer lasting, high quality lifestyle for those who live work and play here.”
