Development encompasses 112 acres along Highway J
By Dave Fidlin
A planned 38-lot subdivision on more than 100 acres of land along Highway J in Rochester continues to progress as village officials activate the green light on various steps.
The Village Board on March 7 approved a preliminary plat for what has been described as the Oakmere Farm subdivision on 112.49 acres of land at 733 N. English Settlement Ave. JS Development LLC is the company behind the proposal.
The board’s review of the plat comes on the heels of a favorable recommendation from the Plan Commission and input from multiple state, county and municipal officials, agencies and organizations.
Among them: Racine County Planning and Development Services, the village’s public works manager, village engineer, Rochester Volunteer Fire Company, Wisconsin Department of Administration and the village attorney.
In a memo, Village Clerk-Treasurer Betty Novy said the collective reviews were aimed at “determining that all ordinance requirements had been met,” which was an ultimate consensus after a few tweaks to some of the specific lots within JS Development’s original plans.
