Wauwatosa

More than 300 hundred people came out Thursday evening to view the latest iteration of a plan for 1200-acres in the southwest portion of Wauwatosa, but their focus was on a small parcel within the plan. Sanctuary Woods is located within what’s commonly known as the County Grounds.

Some see its 22 acres as an oasis within a hub of activity surrounding Watertown Plank Road: traffic and business; the medical complex and UWM’s Innovation Campus: a new apartment complex. Some of that development has swallowed up, what for decades, was green space.

Some time in the next few days, the first major physical signs of new development will take place at the Milwaukee County Grounds in Wauwatosa. A parkway will be constructed as the construction of UWM's new Innovation Park gets underway. The first new building will be a business incubator facility.

The landscape is now barren in front of dozens of Wauwatosa homes.

In June, their city launched its largest public improvements project ever, and it entails cutting down trees. Wauwatosa is replacing miles of aging sewer pipes, in hopes of ending basement back-ups.

While some residents are thrilled, we found others wondering if the cure is worse than the problem.
