North Hudson grocery store action tabled again

Construction of a new grocery store in North Hudson isn't a slam dunk yet.

The village board of trustees, after two hours of discussion last Tuesday night on granting a conditional use permit to developer Dean Hanson to build the facility, moved to table the request and take another stab at gaining an access from Hwy 35 to the proposed store parking lot.

Hanson owns the lot on the northwest corner of the village on the west side of Hwy 35 and south side of Station Ln. N. The increased traffic flow created by the business has been a concern to nearby residents and some board members.

An additional access off Hwy 35 has been banned by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (Wis-DOT). Following the board's May meeting, the village financed a traffic impact analysis on the intersection and went through the process of asking the DOT to change its mind. The agency quickly denied the request.
