A plan to build the first 18 homes behind the Kettle Park West commercial center on the city’s west side will go to a public hearing Monday before what could be its final approvals – a rezoning and final plat.

The Plan Commission will consider recommending approval of the final plat for the KPW North Addition, which includes the homes off of Aspen Trail near Oak Opening Drive.

The rezoning requires a public hearing for those changes, which include changing parts of the west-side site from rural holding to single-family residential and institutional.

No public feedback was offered during the last few public comment periods, most recently during last week’s Common Council meeting, but alders and city staff have shared feedback over the last few weeks related to stormwater management, the connection of Oak Opening Drive to U.S. Hwy. 138, the grading of the site and the character of the neighborhood, which developers hope to avoid the “Levittown model” where every home looks the same.

The commission will consider sending the final plat and certified survey map to the council for final approval.
