THE SHEBOYGAN FALLS PLAN COMMISSION approved a conditional-use permit request for Hub City Restaurant to open a new location at the Plankview Green Retail Center in Sheboygan Falls, during a monthly meeting on Tuesday Nov. 25. - Falls News photo by Jeff Pederson THE SHEBOYGAN FALLS PLAN COMMISSION approved a conditional-use permit request for Hub City Restaurant to open a new location at the Plankview Green Retail Center in Sheboygan Falls, during a monthly meeting on Tuesday Nov. 25. - Falls News photo by Jeff Pederson The Sheboygan Falls Plan Commission approved a conditional use permit for the addition of a new family restaurant at the Plankview Green Retail Center, during a monthly meeting Tuesday, Nov. 25, at the Sheboygan Falls Memorial Library.

The conditional-use permit request was submitted by Plankview Green owner Ron Burrows on behalf of Hub City Restaurant, which currently operates at 409 Mill St. in downtown Plymouth.

“This request is for Hub City Restaurant, which is looking to add a second location at Plankview Green,” Sheboygan Falls Building Inspector-Assessor Ken Sonntag said. “This would be located in the space that had formerly been used by the hospice [Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice].”

In discussing the conditions of the permit Supervisor Jim Pecquex inquired about the operating hours of the restaurant.

“I’m wondering if this could operate as a 24-hour diner, or if we want the hours to be limited,” Pecquex said.

In response, Mayor Randy Meyer said limited hours should be set as a condition to eliminate the possibility of 24-hour operation.

“We should set some restricted operating hours overnight, so we do not have the possibility of this going 24 hours,” Meyer said. “I think we should set 2 to 5 a.m. as restricted hours.”

After a brief discussion, a conditional use permit for a new family restaurant at Plankview Green was approved unanimously on the conditions that all garbage be placed in an enclosed dumpster and hours of operations be restricted between 2-5 a.m.

In other business, the Plan Commission approved the location of a driveway for a proposed Bemis Nutrition Center off off Alfred W. Miley Avenue adjacent to Sheboygan Falls Elementary School.

During a Plan Commission meeting on July 22, Bemis Manufacturing President and CEO Richard Bemis revealed plans to develop an educational facility to promote healthy living and nutrition on the former Alfred Miley property.

The proposed center will be located on 13.06 acres of property on the northwest corner of Fond Du Lac Avenue and Alfred W. Miley Way, adjacent to Sheboygan Falls Elementary School formerly known as Miley Farm.

Bemis, who co-owns the property with his wife Kristine, has expressed interest in donating the land to a non-profit agency devoted to educating the public about healthy living and proper nutrition.

During the July 22 meeting, Bemis noted that he has talked with Restoration Farms and Nourish about potential partnerships in operating the center.

Bob Hackel of Buteyn-Peterson Construction Co. presented a site plan to the Plan Commission, which denotes the location of the driveway.

Members of the Plan Commission also discussed a plan submitted by Curt Joa to split its property on Fond Du Lac and Crocker Avenue into three separate parcels.

“Curt Joa is planning to separate the property for family estate reasons and during that process they found that there are a number of dedicated city road right-ofways running through the property,” Meyer said. “I imagine since this was back in 1963 that there might have been a plan for a subdivision at some point in time. I’m not completely sure of that, but at least that is what it would appear.

“In order to split the parcel, the city needs to undedicate and vacate all of the proposed street right of ways,” he said.

The first parcel of land covers the industrial property. The second parcel will be the golf course and the third parcel includes the homestead farm property.

After the Plan Commission reviewed the site plan, Meyer said the Common Council will begin the process of vacating the street right of ways by considering approval of a new certified survey map at its Dec. 16 meeting.

The next Sheboygan Falls Plan Commission meeting is set to take place Tuesday, Dec. 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the lower level meeting room at the Sheboygan Falls Memorial Library.
