The town of Cedarburg approved plans for the construction for 350 self-storage units at the proposed Five Corners development.
At the April 19 meeting, the town plan commission approved the conditional use permit application from Matt Burrow of Catalyst Construction for the storage units, pending final clarifications on construction renderings and other details.
The self-storage units are part of a larger plan approved by the town in February for a development in the Five Corners Business District on Highway 60 that will also include retail space, commercial condos, and a sports complex. The sports complex would include athletic fields and facilities, a project that the town has sought for the area since plans fell through at the site of the former Prochnow Landfill.
At the plan commission meeting, Town Chairman David Salvaggio raised concerns about the layout of the units as a north-to-south layout instead of the proposed east-to-west layout. Developers for the project explained that the proposed layout would ultimately help with snow removal. The commission also addressed the issue of stormwater draining as it pertained to the entire development.
Ultimately, the plans were approved by the commission pending approval of the stormwater plan and the possible landscaping additions on the east side of the units.
The plans will go through to the town board for final approval. According to Venture Space, developers of the Five Corners project, construction in the area is expected begin as early as fall.
