Final plans for the proposed 70-unit Sierra View subdivision will be presented to the Oak Creek Planning Commission tonight.
After the Planning Commission meeting, there will be a review by an independent engineer, and comments on the subdivision will be taken from the public. The Oak Creek Town Board will consider the subdivision June 3.
Residents at Thursday's Town Board meeting expressed fears that the plans are being rushed through the process, but Sierra View developers said Tuesday those fears were unfounded.
Plans have been in the works for the past year and a half, developer Tim Geiger said.
"It's not being rushed, this is right on the timeframe," he said. "We're ready to start work. You've got to start sometime."
One major concern residents have expressed is that the roads to access the subdivision -- Bell and Moffat avenues -- are too steep and pose safety hazards with more drivers coming from the subdivision.
The proposed subdivision could add more than 200 people to the town of 850.
Geiger and developer Dave Tweedy said they did not expect any major changes would be made to the final plans that are presented tonight.
"People can look it over, but there shouldn't be any changes," Geiger said.
Tweedy said that there has been a lot of "positive response" from people interested in living in Oak Creek, and that reservations for the lots are being taken.
Work could begin during the second or third week of June, Tweedy said.
The Oak Creek Planning Commission could recommend that the Town Board approve or deny the proposed subdivision. After the proposed timeline, there will be a special approval and annexation hearing June 3, in which the Town Board could give the developers the final go-ahead.
The Planning Commission meeting is at 7 p.m. at Oak Creek Town Hall.
