Residents wanting to weigh in on a possible apartment complex on what was initially supposed to be a civic use lot showed up at last night's common council meeting at City Hall.

The Middleton Common Council on Tuesday night approved a resolution reaffirming deed restrictions on civic lots in the Middleton Hills neighborhood, but it wasn’t the resolution detailed in last week’s newspaper. The new resolution was authored by council president Susan West and it differed from the one authored by ald. Hans Hilbert and former common council member Andy Lewis, which was included in the meeting’s agenda.

West’s resolution includes updated assessments of acres designated for civic land use, an indication that the Middleton Hills Neighborhood Association is now comprised solely of Middleton Hills residents, and other language about encouraging discussion surrounding appropriate civic uses for lots in question.

The city received a petition including more than 350 signatures in favor of deed restrictions, but a letter from Alan Hembel, Corporate Secretary for Middleton Hills, Inc., called the resolution “unnecessary.”

The common council took up the issue because of a developer’s proposal to turn Lot 80 into an apartment complex rather than a civic facility.
