The full agenda is available here.

This meeting is related to the ongoing land sale discussed in a recent statement released by the village. The village is considering selling 300 acres of land north of Highway 50 and south of Highway K. Kenosha Landco LLC has offered $15,213,221 for the property.

The property was originally acquired by Bristol when it was a town in an effort to prevent annexations by Kenosha, but now lies within the city of Kenosha. Any decision on development of the land if it were to be sold would lie with Kenosha. Published media reports have tied it to a possible Hard Rock Casino development.

More information on the land sale is available here.
