14th District Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic is inviting residents to discuss a proposed zoning change in the Harbor District Plan Area during a virtual neighborhood meeting on Monday, October 26th from 5:30 – 6:30p.m. Kenosha-based developer Bear Development has applied to change the zoning of the 10-acre campus from E. Becher St. to E. Lincoln Ave. between S. 1st St. and the active Canadian Pacific railroad tracks to “Industrial – Mixed” in place of the current zoning of “Industrial – Heavy.” The zoning change would allow for a mixed-use project on the site. Representatives from Bear Development will be available to discuss project specifics and answer questions from residents.

“I encourage all neighbors in the area to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the proposed zoning change and development project, and voice any questions or concerns they may have. Input from neighbors is a vital part of this process as we work to build the best district possible,” said Alderwoman Dimitrijevic.

Those interested in attending the meeting can register at  Once successfully registered, a confirmation email with instructions on how to join will be sent. Bear Development will host guided tours of the property at 123 and 147 E. Becher Street at 10 a.m. on both Saturday, October 24th and Sunday, October 25th.
