North Anchor Site Redevelopment and other Development in the Southridge Mall Area
Earlier this year we learned that Sears was closing hundreds of stores across the nation.  We later learned that the Sears store at Southridge was closing.  Since hearing this news the Village Board has met to discuss plans to redevelop the north anchor site.  Over the past couple of months the Village has met with representatives from the owners of the north anchor site, Seritage Growth Properties. We have also met with representatives from the City of Greenfield since part of the site is located in Greenfield. Discussions with Seritage have gone very well.  Seritage, Greenfield and the Village are working on a redevelopment plan for the north anchor site.  (Village of Greendale Press Release)

St. Stephen the Martyr - Cell Tower Proposal

The Village is reviewing a proposal to install a wireless tower facility on property owned by St. Stephen the Martyr Lutheran Church at 6101 South 51st Street.

The state legislature significantly altered local authority to regulate cell tower siting in 2013.  In 2013 as part of the biennial state budget bill, the State Legislature created section 66.0404 of the Wisconsin Statutes, which clearly imposed new and significant limits on the manner and extent to which a city, village, town or county may use its zoning authority to regulate the siting and modification of cell towers.
