The city’s Planning Commission will consider recommending a family entertainment center to the Common Council when it meets at 6:30 p.m. July 12, in Rm. 100 of City Hall.
The center, called Lightspeed, would feature lasertag and electric go-carts, and would occupy the current 17,000-square-foot Halloween Express building, 4251 S. 27th Street.
Jon Majdoch, owner of Halloween Express's seven locations, including the giant, inflatable pumpkin outside of State Fair Park in West Allis, is requesting the change.
The city does not have any lasertag or go-cart facilities.
The planning commission will also consider recommending to the Common Council that Constance Brown of Chantilly Banquets become the new owner and operator of Klemmer's Banquet Hall, 10401 Oklahoma Ave., which has been around since 1976. No changes are proposed for the current operation of the banquet business.
In addition to other business, the planning commission will also consider recommending that Balistreri Brothers Pizza be allowed to open a pizza pick-up/delivery business in the former Marie's Pizza in the Grandpa Frank's retail strip center.
