To consider an application filed by Thomas R. Poweleit for a zoning district boundary change (rezoning)
from SR-1 Single-Family Residential District to B-2, Highway Business District; GR, General Residence
District and C-1, Conservancy District. The public hearing to consider a zoning district boundary change
is pursuant to an application filed by the applicant to detach the property from the Village of Summit and
attach the property to the Village of Dousman according to the Summit/Dousman Boundary Agreement.
If attached, a requirement of the Village of Dousman Zoning Code automatically assigns the SR-1 SingleFamily Residential District to properties less than 35 acres in size.
The subject property with the address of 36569 Sunset Drive, Oconomowoc, WI 53066, is legally
described as follows:

B. Kaniewski explained the reason for the rezoning. The front buildable portion of the site requested for
B-2 zoning is bout one acre. The rear buildable portion of the site requested for GR zoning covers about
2.6 acres. The remainder of the site slatted for C-1 zoning is mapped as either a PEC or wetland, or both.
R. Hawk questioned the numbers that Mr. Leonard had come up with and why they are different than the
Village Planners. B. Kaniewski stated that he had estimated the buildable portion of the property until he
received an actual plan from the applicant.
H. Dessart questioned if the attachment would still take place if this did not get approved. He thinks that
the Plan Commission and Village Board should really think about what they want on that property and
what they see in the future.
Pres. Nissen opened the public hearing.

Bob Leonard, 461 N. Main Street; also questioned the Village Planner about the density and what could
fit on that property.
Andy Boettcher, 36722 Clover Lane; questioned the open space and also the density. He questioned
why there has not been a wetland delineation done yet.
Milton Houk, 211 Johnston Drive; stated that we should be concentrating on bringing businesses into the
downtown area now that we are spending all the money to redo it. He talked about what an impact this
would have on the fire and police departments.
Don Bischel, Dousman Road; also spoke about bringing people into the downtown area being important.
Virginia Brown, 439 N. Main Street; asked who would pay for the extension of the sewer and water.
Pres. Nissen stated that it is paid for by the developer.
Bob Leonard, 461 N. Main Street; once again wanted to tell the Plan Commission and Village Board to
remember what all of the neighbors had to say tonight.
Pres. Nissen closed the public hearing.
Pres. Nissen asked the Plan Commission and Board members what their thoughts were on this project. R.
Hawk stated that she is interested in something more low-density, she cannot visualize having 72 units on
this parcel of land. She would like to see us also bringing people into the downtown although that does
not stop us from also thinking of things along Hwy 18. M. Finn and J. Lui also spoke on wanting more
low-density and worried about the wetlands.
Pres. Nissen asked the applicant if he had gotten enough feedback as to what the Plan Commission and
Village Board would like. He is going to work more with the Village Planner and come back to the June
meeting.
Pres. Nissen made a motion to table this public hearing until June 9th, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. C. Queen
seconded. Carried.
Pres. Nissen made a motion to adjourn. C. Queen seconded. Carried.
