The Sussex Plan Commission will review the conditional use permit for the Meijer development at its meeting Jan. 17.
Village staff was directed to craft the permit after an unprecedented marathon of a public hearing. After seven hours, separated by two separate meetings Nov. 28 and Dec. 20, 35 evidentiary exhibits, and testimony from residents, attorneys, and experts, the Plan Commission moved forward to the next step.
Meijer is planning a 191,000-square-foot, 24-hour grocery and retail store on the corner of Highway 164 and County Highway K. Meijer is also considering a similar sized project in Oak Creek.
The Plan Commission will review the initial proposal on Jan. 17, and could vote to approve the permit in February.
