Weston, WI (March 3, 2020) – At the Tuesday, March 2 meeting of the Village of Weston Board of Trustees, in open session, Forward Development Group of Verona (FDG) gave the Board a presentation covering the history of the Camp Phillips Centre Project along with a current status report. At this time FDG is suspending work on the retail piece of the envisioned mixed-use development on the approximate 140 acres in the southeast quadrant of the Camp Phillips Road and STH 29 interchange.
As FDG explained in their presentation to the Village Board, the conclusion to suspend further work on the Camp Phillips Centre retail development is due to:
- Wetland impacts which have resulted in an impasse to obtain the DNR and Army Corps permits
- Reduced acreage for the development
- Extraordinary infrastructure costs
- Unsupportable land acquisition costs
- The changing retail landscape
FDG indicates they may explore other options for development in the Village. The Village also encourages FDG or other developers to explore development projects and will consider proposals on a case-by-case basis if they are brought forward in the future.
