13th St. Property Gets Multi-Family Zoning

The zoning of a 1.9-acre parcel on the north end of 13th Street was changed from single-family to mult-family, amid some concerns about the impact on the neighborhood.

A 1.9-acre property at 6939 S. 13th St. has been rezoned from single-family residential to multi-family, as the owner begins marketing the land to developers.

The Oak Creek Common Council approved the change Tuesday on a 5-1 vote, with Alderman Dan Jakubczyk opposed. Jakubczyk's district encompasses the property.

Some residents voiced concerns to the council, and previously to the Oak Creek Plan Commission, about more housing being a possible disruption to the neighborhood.

City officials say the change fits Oak Creek's comprehensive plan, and added that no multi-family building can be constructed within 50 feet of a single-family home. A developer would also be limited to four-unit buildings, according to a report to council members.

Specific development plans would have to come back to the Plan Commission and council for further review.
