The Road To Sprawlville, Chapter 56. Now Runs Near Lake Waubesa

We note in the 56th chapter of our Wisconsin bad planning series "The Road To Sprawlville" that Fitchburg - - once a quiet Madison suburb, but now a full-fledged City - - has overridden residents' objections to extending sewer lines - - and thus more spending and paving - - to hundreds of acres of near Lake Waubesa.

Homeowners now leap-frogged will eventually see their property taxes go up to cover all the new municipal expenses.

Along with more traffic.

The road to Sprawlville is pitted with policy potholes and broken promises.

A basic image here, regardless of location:
Suburban sprawl
