City of Wauwatosa


Comments on Schoonmaker Creek proposals are due by Nov. 30

The City of Wauwatosa, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewer District (MMSD) and Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) have been working together on a comprehensive study to understand what possible investments in infrastructure could mitigate flooding from reoccurring. SEWRPC presented these slides at last week’s open house and are looking for feedback. Residents are encouraged to complete the comment form online by November 30 and submit their thoughts on this project. If you have a neighbor who is not online, consider printing this PDF version of the comment form that they can fill out and mail in.

Please note that there are no recommendations as to how to proceed at this point in the study process. The Schoonmaker Creek runs from Kops Park neighborhood in Milwaukee in storm pipes underground to the Washington Highlands. It is in an open channel in the Highlands until Vliet Street, where it goes back underground before eventually flowing into the Menomonee River.

Speak Up: Planning for 61st & North Site

Plan Commission Meeting
Monday, March 12, 7:00PM at City Hall

 

You have a voice in shaping East Towne’s future. Now is the time to speak up. Tens of thousands of dollars have been spent to develop a strategic plan for North Avenue, but questions and decisions remain.

The Blockbuster store is out on 61st Street and North Avenue, but an O’Reilly Auto Parts store is ready to move in. Does O’Reilly get your thumbs up or your thumbs down? Are you happy and relieved the building will soon be occupied? Or were you hoping something different would anchor Tosa East Towne? (more…)
