Milwaukee Riverkeeper Group Urges Turnout At UWM Campus Site Meetings Next Week

The environmental group Milwaukee Riverkeeper is urging a turnout at next week's UWM campus planning sessions against siting the new engineering school on the county grounds where Wauwatosa meets the Waukesha border at the Zoo Interchange.

Details of the meetings are here

I've been arguing that the engineering school and the new school of freshwater science be consolidated or joined on the near south side in Walker's Point, where UWM's Great Lakes WATER Institute and other related corporate, scientific and cultural anchors make the area not far from downtown the perfect, coordinate site for a cutting edge UWM presence.
