Wauwatosa's Common Council meets Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall, 76th St. and North Ave., at and will vote on approving UWM's unfunded plan to build a new engineering school and so-called innovation center on a big piece of the Milwaukee County Grounds.
The project will compromise open space and rare Monarch Butterfly migration habitat, pave more than 80 acres of public lands and add traffic and air pollution through what is essentially a sprawl extension of the main UWM campus located miles to the East.
If it is to be built - - an open questions - - the plan's ever-changing design and parameters need refinement and firmer boundaries, but without a crowd at the meeting, the Council may bend to the heavily-lobbied joint private sector/UWM real estate steamroller.
Good Tosa blog about it, here.
