Wetlands, uneven landscape make it tricky fit

The village’s final vacant lot along Milwaukee Street in its business park could finally be snatched up.
Negotiations are currently underway for the 2.9-acre parcel, which Fredonia Village Board President Don Dohrwardt acknowledged “is a challenge to build on.”
That’s because about one acre of it is deemed wetlands, requiring a 35-foot setback from the area. Its sloping topography creates another potential obstacle.
The expense of grading it was the main obstacle that killed an offer of $15,000 two years ago, officials said. A different buyer also pulled out because the 5,000-square-feet minimum build size did not match his business model, they said.
Village officials would not disclose the amount of the offer on the table.
The 22-lot business park totals 35 acres, excluding the land housing Meadowlark Storage’s units.
