A plan to build three lots as duplexes instead of single-family homes in the Walnut Court area has been dropped.
A hearing was to have been held Monday before the New Berlin Plan Commission, but James Krahn withdrew his rezoning request for the proposal that had touched off a petition and protests from neighbors. The lots, which have now been sold, will be developed for single-family homes, as was originally intended under city guidelines.
The lots' buyer started grading them for homes today, Krahn said Tuesday.
As recently as May, Krahn had all but given up finding a buyer willing to build single-family homes on the three lots. The only interested buyer wanted to build duplexes, he said, prompting to make the rezoning request, much to the dismay of neighbors.
But now three months later, Krahn said, "I'm very happy ...and they're getting what they wanted."
