Notice of Public Hearing - Request For Conditional Use Permit

At a meeting of the Plan Commission to be held on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 7:30 p.m., at Middleton City Hall, 7426 Hubbard Ave., Middleton, the following matter will be heard:
An application by the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District requesting the following two conditional use permits to expand Middleton High School, 2100 Bristol St.: 

Sections 10.23(4) and 10.37(5) of the Middleton Zoning Ordinance require conditional use approval for schools located in an R-1 zoning district.

Section 10.23(14) requires conditional use approval for a school building higher than 35 feet, with no such permit to be granted unless all portions of the structure are at least 100 feet from any area on any R-1 zoned property within which a principal structure may be built as measured on a straight, horizontal line from the relevant portion of the structure to the boundary of the buildable area on a plane extended vertically to the sky.

The proposed project consists of the following:

  • New 3-story addition on the north side of the existing high school, including new PAC entry. While the majority of this addition will rise 42 feet above ground level, the penthouse portion of the addition will rise 59 ft. above ground level.
  • Demolish much of the southern portion of the existing building south of the existing athletics area.
  • New 2-story addition on the south side of the existing building including new main entry.
  • New second story corridors connecting the building additions.
  • New parking lots, drives, sidewalks drop off areas will be integrated in and around the new building additions.

At the hearing, all interested persons will have an opportunity to be heard, and action will be considered.
