Residents of both Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant are invited Tuesday to a public hearing about a proposed land deal meant to spur significant development and add jobs in both villages.
The meeting is required by state statute and gets underway at 6 p.m. at Sturtevant Village Hall, 2801 89th Street.
During the hearing, trustees from both villages will have the opportunity to listen to resident opinions and thoughts over the land transfer; moving 66 acres into Sturtevant in exchange for water and sewer connections to a parcel in Mount Pleasant just west of UNFI on Durand Avenue.
The deal opens the door for Ashley Capital to build the first of four large buildings in Sturtevant and for local real estate developer Ray Leffler to ink a deal with a prospect he told Racine County Eye “is hot to trot.”
