Meetings set to discuss Hope Church, baseball park


SUMMIT — The Plan Commission set the dates for two meetings likely to decide how the future of Summit will look — a master plan amendment and a request for rezoning for Hope Church as well as Diamond Club Entertainment.

Hope Church is looking to build a new facility at 2517 Dousman Road, just north of the village hall. At Thursday’s meeting, the commission recommended approval to the Village Board for a master plan amendment that would change the area from being planned as business park to institutional, Village Planner Henry Elling said.

The public hearing is set for that item at the Oct. 10 Village Board meeting. In addition, Hope Church asked for the area to be rezoned from agricultural to institutional.

The commission will hear public comment on Sept. 19 for the rezoning. Elling said preliminary plans and drawings for Hope Church will be available the week of Labor Day to be ready for the hearing.

Also at Thursday’s meeting, Diamond Club Entertainment, the group looking to build Lake Country Commons in the village, asked for a master plan amendment and a request for rezoning.

The proposal from Diamond Club Entertainment will also have its public hearing for the master plan amendment on Oct. 10 and its public hearing for the rezoning on Sept. 19.

The Plan Commission also approved the site and architectural plans for a 160-foot monopole communications tower to be built at 2953 N. Golden Lake Road.
