With Sussex’s latest business park on the fast track, Pete Meissner says he’ll pull his 600 head of cattle from Sussex if the deal is approved.
It has been a heated battle between the Village of Sussex and Sussex farmer Pete Meissner over plans to construct a new business park, but the situation has just reached new heights. The 120 acres of farmland being evaluated for the new corporate center, near the corner of highways 164 and VV, was formerly owned by the Meissner family, but was sold in 2002. The family farm has continued to use the land after its sale, and Meissner says its essential to his cattle business in Sussex. “If Sussex buys that ground and we’re left with 120 less acres, I don’t believe we’ll be able to maintain our farming enterprises here,” said Meissner, whose family has been farming on the site for nearly 80 years. “Once that happens, there’s no turning back. …

A $60,000 grant has been approved to start the purchasing process of 120 acres of farmland to be developed into Sussex’s newest corporate park.
Both the Community Development Authority and the Sussex Village Board voted unanimously Tuesday night to begin the process of purchasing 120 acres of farmland on the west end of Sussex, turning it into a new corporate park. A community development grant totaling $60,000 will be paid to Brookfield developer MLG to begin surveying the land behind Kohl’s and Shopko, doing environmental studies and possibly completing the sale of the farmland with Johnson Bank, the current owner of the land. Sussex officials stress they have the right to stop the process at any time, and the grant money is revenue from a former tax incremental financing district, not tax money from Sussex homeowners. When filled with businesses, MLG estimates the business park…
