This photo from the May 12 Sun Prairie Plan Commission meeting shows the site plan with the former parsonage at 222 Windsor St. as well as its location between the McKenzie Family Boys and Girls Club at 232 Windsor St. and the home of Ted Chase to the west of the former parsonage. The commission will reconsider a conditional use permit to allow the former parsonage to be used as a technical skills training center for teens as part of its June 9 agenda.

A conditional use permit from the McKenzie Family Boys and Girls Club — referred back to the commission by the Sun Prairie City Council — will be reconsidered by the commission as part of a June 9 Zoom meeting scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

City Planning Director Tim Semmann said in a release announcing the June 9 commission agenda that a public hearing will be held on a request by the club for approval of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to allow an Indoor Institutional use (Teen/Youth Technical Center) and meeting space in an existing residential building at 222 Windsor St. The building is a former single family home that served as the parsonage for the former church where the center is currently located. Boys and Girls Club of Dane County (BGCDC) has requested approval of the CUP to host a youth technical job skills training center.
