Neighbors Opposed to Sunrise Development in NW Current

There were recent letters to the editor by the Sunrise developer in the Current, and a subsequent letter to the editor by the pastor of Wisconsin Area Baptist Church.

Neighbors responded in droves with a letter clearly stating why we are opposed to the development:

"Sunrise is asking for an exception to the single-family-detached zoning so that a for-profit senior retirement facility can join the church on a lot zoned for individual homes. Plus they are asking for variances to have increased height, an increase in the number of stories, a waiver of the mandate that half the lot be pervious, a request to eliminate the side-yard setback and a variance for a retaining wall, among other requests. They seek to develop a project that would require 20 trucks a week and a 7-ton shuttle bus when all the streets surrounding the site ban trucks."

Meanwhile, there are over 200 neighbors who have signed a petition opposing the development as unsuitable for the residentially-zoned lot and the neighborhood of single-family homes.
