Ft Atkinson will annex space for new housing development

FORT ATKINSON, WISC. – Territory along Banker Road for a planned residential neighborhood will now be annexed into the City of Fort Atkinson.

Council members on Tuesday unanimously approved the annexation of 75 acres of city-owned land, presently within the Town of Koshkonong, into the city.

The annexation, City Manager Rebecca Houseman LeMire said, will allow the property owners to develop the property at higher densities and obtain urban services that are not available in the town, such as water and sewer.

“The annexation of the subject parcels will further the city’s goal of providing suitable land for residential development,” LeMire said.

“After that plan is complete, the city intends to prepare a request for proposals for developers to develop the land in phases in accordance with the city’s Comprehensive Plan and the approved Neighborhood Plan,” LeMire said. “The development of this land will increase the opportunity for housing as well as the city’s tax base.”
