Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
My 2 aldermen, Lisa Mellone and Renee' Lowerr, sent out an email that there will be an information meeting on Percheron Square tonight, from 6-7pm at City Hall in Council Chambers. If you are interested in this development project, this would be a good opportunity for you to find out more. (Sorry this is late, I have been having computer troubles.)
Percheron Square is an AVS project (division of VK Development) and will be located on the former Ruby Farm and WTMJ properties next to Swanson Elementary School. Former plans.
The plans have changed a few times since it first came to the plan commission last June. The fitness and recreation facility is no longer a part of Percheron Square. I believe the fitness / recreation element was touted as being a benefit to the community at the plan commission meeting. I don't know if there now is some sort replacement for that loss.
The old Ruby Farmstead is still a part of the development plans.
There will also be a public hearing on the rezoning of the project to a PDD on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 7:45pm, at the beginning of the Common Council meeting.
