Sussex may provide TIF to MLG to develop business park

Sussex trustees met privately for the second time this month to discuss possibly offering tax incremental financing to help develop a business park behind Kohl's on Main Street.

"We're working on development deals for a new corporate center, and we're pretty close with that," Village Administrator Jeremy Smith said. "It would potentially be behind the Kohl's. There actually isn't a lot of vacant industrial land in Waukesha County, so the need for space is there. The empty lots we have in Sussex have some challenging issues in regards to wetlands and things like that, and the Village Board is cognizant of that."

The village is working with MLG Development in its goal to obtain almost 400 acres of land from the Bielinski Brothers construction company and the Johnson Bank near the corner of Main Street and Hwy 164. MLG is interested in the land because of the success other industrial parks in Sussex have had.
