The Fremont City Council will hold the second reading of an ordinance that would amend the Planned Development for the Gallery 23 East housing development at its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday.
The Gallery 23 East development on the southeast corner of U.S. Highway 275 and U.S. Highway 30 broke ground in September 2017 and became Dodge County SID 8 earlier this year.
The developers of Gallery 23 East, which is owned by Cosentino Holdings, LLC., plan for the development to include single-family residences, duplexes, multi-family residential housing and commercial properties when it is completed.
The requested amendment to the Planned Development for Gallery 23 East includes adding more residential housing in place of originally planned commercial properties within the development.
“What we have done primarily is change some of the commercial areas to residential,” Brad Marshall of Olsson Associates agent for Gallery 23 East said at a Fremont Planning Commission meeting on March 19. “We have basically upgraded some of our multi-family area and taken away some of the big box stores (commercial properties) that you saw on some of the first conceptual drawings.”
The biggest change on the Planned Development master plan includes shrinking the originally proposed 46.5 acres for General Commercial use down to 16.9 acres with the additional space being instead used for various residential properties.
“In our townhome area, we are adding approximately 14 townhomes,” Marshall said. “With that being a secondary access on the east side of the property, we don’t want residential to feel like they are driving through a commercial development to get to their homes.”
The original Planned Development ordinance, No. 5405, was approved by the City Council in May 2017.
The request to amend the original Planned Development ordinance was recommended by the Planning Commission by a vote of 8-0 during its March 19 meeting.
