Village of Chenequa - Village trustees indicated tonight they would be willing to allow an 11 acre parcel of land on the village's southwest corner to be annexed into the Village of Nashotah to facilitate the construction of a new church.
The parcel is owned by the Lake Country Bible Church which wants to construct a 20,000 square feet sanctuary. church office and meeting rooms on a dead end at the east end of Watertown Plank Road. The property south of Hwy. 16 is in the Village of Chenequa but adjacent to the Village of Nashotah.
Church officials want to annex into the Village of Nashotah in order to access sewer service provided by the Delafield-Hartland Water Pollution Control Commission which has a sewer main that serves the Village of Nashotah that ends next to the church property.
Chenequa Village President Robert Foote Jr. said the village board would have no objections to the annexation provided that the land use and building construction met Chenequa codes.
Nashotah Village President Rich Lartz told the Chenequa trustees that the conditional use permit that would be issued for the church would be drafted to insure the building and land use complied with both municipal codes.
In addition, there are light pollution and storm water control issues raised by Nashotah residents that the church officials will have to resolve before the permit is issued.
