Site plan approved for new Bergstrom used car lot

ASHWAUBENON – A site at 2800 Ramada Way previously used as a car dealership will once again be used to sell automobiles with a new building being constructed there.

The village’s Site Plan Review Committee backed a site plan with conditions Tuesday, Sept. 17, for Bergstrom Automotive to build a new facility housing a used car dealership.

Community Development Director Aaron Schuette said the site previously housed a Saturn dealership and subsequently JD Byrider until it moved across the street.

Schuette said the site previously received approval of a conditional use permit (CUP) for a used car lot and won’t need a new permit.

“There is not a new CUP required because it has been vacant for less than a year,” he said. “That conditional use permit can carry through to this use as well.”

Schuette said the property is presently split up into three parcels, so a certified survey map would have to be approved by Brown County to create a single lot to permit construction of a new Bergstrom building of approximately 17,000 square feet.

With the previously building on site being razed, Schuette said the plans for the new Bergstrom facility call for three vehicle delivery bays, two detail bays and two service bays.

“The building will have metal panels with concealed fasteners, and there will be a 3-foot block, brick wainscoting, along the bottom to protect the panels from any kind of damage from vehicles, which was a condition of approval,” he said.

Evergreen Landscaping

Committee members approved a site plan requested by Brian Thurlow of Evergreen Landscaping to construct a 7,854-square-foot building at 1247 Contract Dr. primarily for business storage.

The building plans call for a mixture of concealed fastener metal wall panels and brick with the parking area and driveway being paved.

Building inspector Kyle Pederson said the plans don’t include any dumpsters on site because trash and recyclables will be stored inside the building.

Halloween Express

A sure sign of Halloween approaching received committee approval with temporary signage for Halloween Express leasing space at 2763 S. Oneida St.

Dale Ryan of Halloween Express requested displaying signage similar to the past few years with a 144-square-foot wall sign on the front building façade and a 40.5-square-foot freestanding sign along South Oneida Street.

Building Inspector Eric Baumann said committee approval was required for the signage because the length of time the signs will be displayed exceeds four weeks and the size exceeds 64 square feet per sign.
