Preservationists save most of Fitchburg/Lake Waubesa wetlands

Years of struggle to save acreage in the Lake Waubesa watershed from fill, pavement and sprawl development in Dane County's City of Fitchburg are paying off.

It's not a complete victory, but it will be years before any development takes place while much of the contested area appears safe, The Capital Times reports.

I had recently updated this issue.

Good for them! We need to set this land aside, after all, 100 years from now we will need this landmass to pave over for more parking.

So we obviously can't develop it all now. What will our children develop?
