Sun Prairie City Council Approves Dishes for Token Creek Serenity Estates | New
Without discussion, Sun Prairie City Council approved the preliminary and final dishes for the controversial Token Creek Serenity Estates on October 19.
The project consists of 35.22 acres of land along Token Creek recently annexed to the Town of Sun Prairie in 39 single-family residential lots, ranging in size from 53,758 square feet or 1.234 acres to 9,675 square feet or 0.222 acres. , located south of Token Creek and north of Stonehaven Drive.
The dish will dedicate nearly 18 acres of land to the public for the environmental corridor, wetlands, floodplain, public pathways and open spaces. Three of the proposed subdivisions will be privately owned and maintained by the Homeowner’s Association for the purpose of installing Cluster Mailbox (CBU) units, signage and open space. An off-street multi-use public trail will extend southwest from an existing trail on the reserve and cross Outlot 1 to connect to St. Patrick’s Way.
Alders approved a land annexation petition in March, allowing the city to file an urban service area amendment (United States) with the Capital Zone Regional Planning Commission (CARPC) to expand the US city to include the land in question in April, and a suburban residential zoning change (SR-4) in June. CARPC voted to recommend approval of an amendment to the city’s urban service area boundary to the Wisconsin MNR in July.
A preliminary platform for the land was approved by city council in July, which included extending Lonnie Lane to the west through the mapped wetlands. The applicant then submitted a final plaque for approval in August. However, residents and nearby alders continued to voice concerns about the impact of the wetland infill on the roadway.
As a result, the proponent requested to defer action to the final plate during the August and September Plan Commission meetings to work on revisions that avoided disturbing the wetlands. A modified preliminary and final platform has been submitted which removes the extension of Lonnie Lane Road, providing two cul-de-sac extending east and north of Lonnie Lane and a cul-de-sac s extending north of St. Patrick’s Way.
Community Development Director Scott Kugler said to provide municipal development and pedestrian connectivity services, the dish includes public improvements in the wetlands between Lonnie Court and St. Patrick’s Way – a 20-foot main easement. wide, a 20 foot wide sanitary sewer easement, a 6 foot wide utility easement and an existing 10 foot wide GTE electrical easement via a footpath and a pedestrian bridge.
Sewerage service OK
Based on recommendations from sewage treatment plant manager Jeremy Cramer and the public works committee, Alders awarded a contract for $ 171,809.25 for sanitary sewer lining at Visu-Sewer.
In a note to Alder, Cramer wrote that a sanitary sewer liner of 3,731 feet of 8-inch clay pipe as well as 1,392 feet of 10-inch clay pipe and 564 feet of 15-inch clay pipe were put out to tender on August 4, 2021. Included in this project is the rehabilitation of 68 diversions and the grouting of these same 68 diversions.
Coating sanitary sewers will help efforts to reduce groundwater and clean water infiltration into the sewage system, Cramer said.
The recommendation was based on an estimated cost for this project of $ 195,000 and the amount budgeted for the project was $ 400,000. Visu-Sewer bid $ 171,809.25 against another bidder, Insituform, at $ 287,862.
The public works committee met on September 14, 2021 and recommended that the contract be awarded to Visu-Égout. The board agreed, voting to award the contract as part of its consent program.
No more “transient” speed limit on N
Sun Prairie City Council voted to remove a 30-mile-per-hour transitional speed limit for motorists entering the City of Sun Prairie from the south on the N Freeway.
A note from the city’s director of public services, Adam Schleicher, said the city’s public works, engineering and police departments meet regularly to review traffic problems and identify areas that may be improved in the city. The 30 mph transition speed zone on Grove Street (County Highway N) near Sun Prairie High School has been identified as an area for improvement.
Highway N approaching Sun Prairie from the south is a two-lane rural highway with a speed limit of 55 mph. As the freeway enters town, speed is reduced to 30mph at Educator Lane, then again to 25mph at Sanibel Lane.
“Current WisDOT guidelines, in the Traffic Engineering, Operations & Safety Manual, do not recommend transition speed zones when the road is rural and passes directly through a community, as is the case on Grove Street,” said writes Schleicher in his note to the board. . The same situation previously existed on Hwy 19 east of Musket Ridge Drive, and WisDOT has removed that transition speed zone and the pavement now goes straight from 55 to 25 miles per hour.
The public works committee reviewed the policy change at its Oct. 12 meeting and voted to recommend council approval of removing the transitional speed limit. Alders approved the change as part of the council’s consent program on October 19.
Concierge service contract approved
On the recommendation of management analyst Lauren Freeman and Ben John, director of public works operations, Alders awarded a new maintenance services contract to CleanPower.

In July, the city issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to seek concierge service proposals and establish a new cleaning contract with the most competitive proposal. Bids were due on August 25 and the evaluation team met on September 7 to rate the proposals.
The evaluation team used the new bidding model scoring process, which included scoring company qualifications, relevant company experience, costs, sustainability, DBE / WBE and local preference. The cost was factored into the score after evaluation team members submitted their scores for the other categories.
In the scoring process, CleanPower ranked first with a score of 64.55, closely followed by Sundance at 63.47, JaniKing at 48.57 and Service Master at 37.71.
CleanPower was also the lowest bidder for the service at $ 8,536 per month to clean Westside Community Services Building, Sun Prairie Municipal Building, Fleet Services Building, Municipal Service Center; Wastewater treatment plant, Parks Department store, Sun Prairie Museum and Family Aquatic Center on a seasonal basis.
