Sturtevant residents will have the chance Tuesday to make their voices heard about proposed zoning changes to land designated for a new public works building.

The primary parcel is located on the frontage of 90th Street on the north side of the driveway that leads to the rear of Village Hall and is currently zoned for a single family residence. In order to build a new public works facility, the land needs to be designated for governmental and industrialized district.

The second parcel is located in the rear of Village Hall and has been used as a t-ball field for years. Residents will have the opportunity to weigh in on redesigning the land so it can be incorporated into a village campus.

The new DPW building is expected to cost around $2 million.

Once completed, Sturtevant will have all its municipal offices housed in one location; Village Hall and the police department share a building at 2801 89th Street which is also connected to fire Station 9.

The village board meeting begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Village Hall, 2801 89th Street. Call (262) 886-7200.
