In the works is the Majestic Realty Co. land option on a 309-acre parcel located at Highway H and S in the Town of Somers. Prior to Governor Walker’s signing of the Special Session Senate Bill 3 on October 30, 2013, Majestic was waiting for necessary approvals from the Town of Somers and State of Wisconsin to create a Tax Incremental Financing District. When the Bill was signed by Governor Walker, it gave the green light for economic development to proceed.
On September 9, 2013, the Somers Plan Commission approved Majestic’s proposed industrial development plan. Although there is no time frame set for construction to commence, John Semcken of Majestic Realty Co., expressed continued interest in a long-term commitment in southeastern Wisconsin and the Town of Somers.
The Majestic development is located in the Town of Somers in a non-residential industrial business park corridor as indicated in the Town of Somers Smart Growth plan as well as the Town of Somers Neighborhood Plans.
