What has to happen first, however, is a proposed zone change from BA to BD-1, with the particulars of a site plan submitted by the owners, PMC Property Group, only kicking in if the Board of Alders approves that change. As the city heads toward a March 1 public hearing set by the Legislative Committee of the Board of Alders, Sabin said he continues to have “a very open mind about what is on the table here and about what our options are.” The full Board of Alders likely will vote on the proposed zone change April 4 with a hearing and vote on the site plan after that by the City Plan Commission.
