Eastern Avenue annexation advances

by Emmitt B. Feldner of The Review staff

PLYMOUTH – The annexation of another property on the north side of Eastern Avenue moved forward a step Thursday.

The Plan Commission recommended approval of the annexation request from Robert and Helen Abhold for their home at 2702 Eastern Avenue, along with rezoning to B-3 highway business.

The City Council will take final action on the annexation and rezoning.

“We felt this is a good fit,” Building Inspector Pete Scheuerman said of the annexation and rezoning. “It does front on the Eastern Avenue corridor and it does conform to our comprehensive plan.”

The home is located just to the east of the former Aurora Clinic building and across the street from the Plymouth Commons shopping center.

Scheuerman explained that while the property is currently a singlefamily residence, the surrounding properties are zoned highway business. Single-family homes are allowed under the highway business zoning classification, he added.

A certified survey map for the Stipe Machinery property on County M in the town of Sheboygan Falls was approved by the commission under its extra-territorial zoning jurisdiction.

The 8.2-acre parcel will be divided into two lots, with the existing Stipe facility on the southern 1.91- acre lot. The remaining lot will be sold to Lakeshore Transport, which plans to develop a shed for storing vans and other vehicles on that lot.

A request to create more accessible parking spaces at the Clark gas station/convenience store on Eastern Avenue was tabled when it was discovered that the piece of land in question does not belong to the Clark station.

Clark station owner Denis Tiwari was seeking to pave over a portion of the green space between his store and the American Family insurance building to the east to create customer parking that would be easier to get into and out of than the existing spaces.

But Scheuerman noted that research by city staff showed that the green space in question is owned by Dave Hanson of American Family, something Tiwari said he was not aware of.

“My understanding as of now is that it was my property. I’ll have to do some research,” Tiwari told the commission. He added that he had discussed his plans with Hanson, who had no objection to them.

Commissioners suggested that Tiwari work with Hanson to create a legal easement to put parking slots on the space in question and then bring his request back to the commission for approval.
