Project Review Schedule Update:

On February 15, 2012, the Urban Design Commission (UDC) gave initial approval to the requested amendment to the Planned Unit Development-General development Plan for the Grandview Commons Town Center to enlarge the Center and allow development of a 58,000 square foot grocery store.  On February 20, 2012, the Plan Commission referred consideration of this proposed PUD amendment (and related amendments to the Comprehensive Plan and Sprecher Neighborhood Development Plan) to their March 5th meeting at the request of the Alder to allow time to incorporate the UDC comments into the review materials.

Notices for the Common Council public hearings previously scheduled for February 28, 2012 on these three items have already been published, and these items will appear on the agenda for that meeting.  However, these hearings will be opened and immediately continued and referred to the March 20, 2012 Common Council meeting.  No public testimony on the proposed PUD amendment or the two proposed plan amendments will be taken at the February 28th Common Council meeting, and there will be no discussion of these items other than the required referrals.

Final approval of the proposed amendment to the Grandview Commons PUD is currently scheduled for consideration at the March 7, 2012 UDC meeting.

As a result of these actions, the tentative review schedule for the Grandview Commons Town Center project and the related Comprehensive Plan and Sprecher Neighborhood Development Plan amendments is:

Plan Commission:   March 5, 2012, 6:00 PM
Urban Design Commission:   March 7, 2012, 4:30 PM
Madison Common Council:   March 20, 2012, 6:45 PM
