Wyatt Cottages will be built on two parcels bordering an apartment complex and the Madison Tot Lot (see the embedded site plan).

Madison Avenue Development and the island’s park district had discussed a land swap that would have relocated the tot lot to the corner of Wyatt and Madison.

That plan was unpopular with park-goers and eventually nixed.

According to documents posted by the city, the park district and developer did agree to an easement which will allow the access road for the development to cross the southwest corner of the park district’s tot lot parcel.

In exchange, the district will be able to use the new driveway for park access.

According to a project narrative filed last year, Wyatt Cottages is designed to be a “low scale, walkable neighborhood of single-family homes.” Each house will have a private garden space and a roof oriented to maximize exposure for solar panels.

Comments on the land use decision will be accepted through May 27.
