I began hearing a couple of weeks ago that planning discussions about locating the new UW-M School of Freshwater Science at the former Pieces of Eight restaurant site - - along with some some private sector water industry offices - - included a hotel in the complex.

People told me there was no hotel in the plan.
Now Bruce Murphy has heard hotel-on-the-lakefront talk, too, and, predictably, it is running into opposition from the good folks at the Milwaukee Art Museum who are not keen on a hotel so close to the Calatrava addition.
And can you blame them?
There's a public hearing on the issue next Friday, May 28th, at 6 p.m. in room 301-B, City Hall.
