Sheboygan Rejects Utica Energy Proposal

Back ↑

March 2005 – Sheboygan Planning Commission Recommendation – In response to residents' concerns over safety and environmental issues, The City of Sheboygan Planning Commission cast a unanimous vote against rezoning the former Cargill Malt Company from Urban Industrial to Heavy Industrial blocking the way for Utica Energy to build an Ethanol plant on a site located in a Sheboygan, WI neighborhood.

…the City of Sheboygan Comprehensive Plan states “over the last twenty years the City of Sheboygan has worked diligently to make planning, zoning, development and redevelopment decisions that both avoid and correct areas of conflict” This proposal will increase conflict. Therefore, is (sic) staff’s recommendation that the proposed rezone from Urban Industrial(UI) to Heavy Industrial(HI) should be denied for the following reasons:
  1. It does not protect water and air quality.
  2. It does not protect and enhance the unique functional qualities of the Sheboygan Riverfront.
  3. It does not ensure that conflicts between neighboring land uses are minimized.
  4. It does not ensure that heavy industrial development proposals are (not) located within location sensitive lands and it does not take advantage of more appropriate industrial zoned land.
  5. It does not provide for adequate road capacities and road quality.
  6. It does not provide for the minimization of transportation facility disruptions by land use.
  7. It does not encourage the upkeep and maintenance of existing housing.
  8. It does not facilitate the provisions of balancing the community wide needs with local concerns.
  9. It does not protect the public health, safety, morals, comfort, convenience and welfare of Sheboygan citizens.
