Mayor, city council president propose $1.2 million land purchase

Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway and City Council President Sheri Carter of the 14th District have proposed the purchase of 814 and 826 North Ave., according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The $1.2 million purchase would be funded by a special city land purchase fund and help guide development on the city’s south side.

The two lots located just off South Park Street total approximately 1.5 acres and will be used to offset displacement of residents as the area is developed. The resolution will be referred to committees before the full city council takes action.
