Plan Commission Update: Muskego Kohl's Will Rethink Redesign

Retailer says they are withdrawing a design plan, but will likely be back before year's end.

Stating that Kohl's was withdrawing a request to redesign the front entrances at its Muskego location, Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti explained that the agenda item for Tuesday night's Plan Commission would be tabled.

"Kohl's is undergoing a revaluation for its Muskego store, so they will not be pursuing the request at this time," Chiaverotti said. "They stated that they would likely be back with a proposal before the end of the year."

The initial request was made in December for a redesign, but the plan commissioners were concerned that the revamp was too modern in design, and didn't fit in with the commerce corridor's prairie style requirement. A January meeting, which would have continued the discussion, was canceled because there weren't enough commissioners present for a quorum.

Other items on Tuesday nights agenda included:

  • Fireworks sales will be conducted in front of Piggly Wiggly, Pick n Save and Jetz Fuel in the week surrounding the 4th of July holiday.
  • All annual reviews were approved, including those for Frey Auto, Durham Hill Auto and Paws Inn
  • Signage at the Janesville Commons mall was approved to include logos
  • Truck parking was approved for Johnny's Petroleum
  • Payne and Dolan received a renewal of their conditional use grant for the mining of sand and gravel at their facility just south of I-43
  • Stein's Just Plants was approved to operate seasonally in front of Kohl's department stores, and the commission agreed to extend the permit for a two-year period
  • The preliminary plat for Crystal Cove subdivision, located on the city's south side at Muskego Dam Drive and Racine Avenue, was approved. The development will feature 12 oversized lots and higher end homes.
