Neumann Developments Inc. is set to break ground on the Village of Saukville’s newest mixed-use residential development, The Crossroads, at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15.

The ceremony, delayed from its original June 8 date because of poor weather, will begin at 10 a.m. at the project site located south of Highway 33, east of Highway I.

The ground-breaking ceremony, to be attended by Neumann President Steve DeCleene, Village President Barb Dickmann and other village officials, will celebrate the creation of new homes, businesses and employment opportunities in the village.

The Crossroads subdivision, included in the Emerald Ridge development, was first brought to the village about 15 years ago but never materialized. Neumann Developments approached the village again in June to renew talks on the development. 

Plans for the subdivision include 63 single-family homes and nine two-story, multifamily housing buildings making up 108 units. The proposed subdivision is located south of Highway 33, just east of Living Hope Lutheran Church on what is now a farm field. 

Later phases of the development also plan on creating large industrial lots north of the subdivision across Highway 33.

The final plat for The Crossroads was approved by the Plan Commission on June 7, contingent that no objections are made by regulating agencies.

Because the project went through approvals when previously considered by the village, the Plan Commission allowed the final plat to be considered without consideration of a preliminary plat.

The motion to wave the preliminary plat stated submitting the document was not necessary because Neumann’s conceptual plans and layout have already been approved by the village.

Approval of the final plat paves the way for work to begin on the development this year.

The Plan Commission also recommended that the Village Board approve a certified service survey map that divides about an acre of property from the Living Hope Lutheran Church property which was purchased by Neumann Developments.

The Plan Commission also recommended to the Village Board that the lot separated from Living Hope Lutheran Church be divided into four separate lots, on which single-family homes will be built.

The four lots will not be included in the tax increment finance district created by the village to finance infrastructure for the development, meaning the village will realize tax revenue from the properties immediately.

Neumann project manager Kevin Anderson said the four lots are separate from the The Crossroads subdivision but will share the same access roads and be designed the same as other homes in the subdivision.

“Taxes associated with these homes will immediately go to the village and other agencies that receive taxes,” Anderson said. “It’s going to be the same homebuilder and these lots will be subject to the same restrictions and requirements. After the homes are finished, it is going to feel like they are all part of the same master plan community.”
