Raemisch Farm development approved

After rejecting a north side development twice before, the Madison City Council has approved the rezoning of the Raemisch Farm at 4150 Packers Ave., according to a Capital Times report. The rezoning vote of 15–3 will change the plot of land from agriculture to residential and make way for Green Street Development of St. Louis to construct 76 single-family homes and an estimated 600 to 1,300 housing units. The council had denied the rezoning in August 2021 and in February 2022 because of potential noise from F-35 fighter jets that will be stationed near the development.
