Sussex ’s past inspires vision of its future Village leaders strive for a mix that will bring vitality downtown

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (WI) - Tuesday, May 23, 2006

Author: DAVE SHEELEY, Staff: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Sussex — Photos of downtown Sussex in the early 20th century show a bustling area of homes and businesses.

Village leaders are hoping to bring the life in those busy scenes back to Main St., even as shopping destinations continue to spring up along commerce-heavy Highway 164 and in other suburban retail meccas.

"We’re just trying to re-create that feel of a small village downtown," Village Administrator Evan Teich said. "We want it to be energized."

Sussex officials hope two new developments — a 33-unit condominium project and a business complex that could include a restaurant , retail or offices — will spark other construction activity downtown.

Currently, a grocery store, Village Hall, the library and some small businesses, such as vehicle repair shops, sit among residences along Main St.

Over the years, businesses have closed or made the transition into residences.

Sussex isn’t looking to become the next downtown Cedarburg or Delafield, filled with high-end antique and specialty shops, Teich said. Village officials want to attract locally owned restaurants and coffeehouses to bring people downtown.

"We’d love to tap the entrepreneurial spirit of our residents," Teich said.

Similar scenarios play out throughout the United States, as downtowns work to return residents who moved out to subdivisions and businesses that relocated to strip malls and big-box retail complexes along highways.

Sussex has already attempted to spruce up downtown by planting flowers, installing decorative streetlights and banners and building more sidewalks and so-called bump-outs — an extension of a sidewalk that narrows the roadway, allowing motorists to better spot pedestrians.

In March the Village Board approved purchasing two adjacent properties: the "pink house," a residence on Main St., and the Sussex Steakhouse, a small, former restaurant resembling a home.

The owners of both of those properties offered the properties to Sussex , village officials say. Trustees have OK’d buying the residence for $246,000 and the steakhouse for $210,000.

Under the village’s plan, both structures will be demolished, and the properties will be combined into one parcel, just less than 1 acre in size. Construction is expected begin in the fall or spring.

"We’re hoping with this development, it will spark interest" in developers who want to build in Sussex , Teich said.

Directly behind the pink house and steakhouse, new condominiums are under construction, attracting new residents who will shop downtown, Teich said.

The high-density housing units are planned for The Villas of Maplewood Terrace, an estimated 6-acre development by the father and son team of George and George Schroeder. The condos, some of which are completed, will start at about $350,000. The Schroeders are also building space for office or retail.

"It’s certainly going to be a positive factor here," George Schroeder Sr. said. "These people moving in are the type that are going to be spending money here."

He and his wife, Karen, moved into one of the condominiums after leaving behind their home on the shore of North Lake, which cost a "fortune to heat."

In 2004, Sussex adopted downtown development guidelines that call for buildings constructed closer to the streets and a mix of residential and commercial properties.

The village also launched an economic development committee this year.

"We think it’s really important that the downtown stays vital," Village President Michael Knapp said. "We have a lot down there, with the library, historical society, Village Hall and 15 to 16 businesses. We want to make sure it doesn’t deteriorate."

He envisions downtown development spots for the start-up businesses or "ma and pa" shops unable to afford the high rents in the commercial areas along Highway 164 west of downtown.

Knapp said there is other development under way in Sussex outside downtown. Just east of there is the planned Mammoth Springs Square along Main St. near Waukesha Ave.

Bielinski Development Inc. of Waukesha plans to convert the old Mammoth Springs Canning Co., a former cannery on a 10-acre site, into residential and commercial uses.
