Neumann Companies proposing subdivision in Muskego

Development would include land for conservation

Neumann Companies Inc. is planning a 37-lot subdivision on Racine Avenue in Muskego.

The proposed development, Edgewater Heights Subdivision, would be a mix of single-family homes and wetlands on 57 acres at Woods Road and Racine Avenue, south of Janesville Road.

Plans for that parcel have been changed drastically since 2006, when Alesci Homes proposed a 57-home subdivision for the land.

The Muskego plan commission and city council approved those plans in 2008, but the developer backed out when the housing market crashed, according to city documents.

Pewaukee-based Neumann Companies, which specializes in conservation development, has now come forward, with a plan that subdivides the property to abide by the city’s conservation ordinances, which were developed in 2008.

Each residential lot will contain a minimum of 18,000-square feet with the average lot size being 21,700-square-feet and each lot will have direct access to undevelopable open space, according to plans submitted to the city.

The city’s plan commission will consider the proposal Tuesday.
