Milwaukee Water Works has submitted the landscape plan for the Kilbourn Reservoir to the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) and we anticipate the panel will consider it at its October meeting. This is the plan developed during the past four years through neighborhood meetings, the most recent of which was Jan. 13, 2005. We thought you would like to know we are taking the next step toward completing the project.

Specifically, the Water Works submitted an Application for Certificate of Appropriateness to the HPC to be included on the agenda at the October 17, 2005 meeting that starts at 3:00 p.m. HPC meetings are held in Room 301A of City Hall, 200 E. Wells St. When finalized, the agenda will be available at http://www.mkedcd.org/planning/hpc/plghpcm.html.

The landscape plan reflects input from our January neighborhood meeting, including terminating Garfield Avenue just east of Booth Street and creating park pathways using asphalt paving. In addition, the Department of Public Works Transportation Unit has made modifications to the North Avenue paving project, including realigning the intersection of Booth and North (on the south side of North Avenue) to a right angle intersection and adding two pedestrian crosswalks across North Avenue: one at the “new” intersection of Booth and North, and one approximately at the midpoint of the curve.

You can get a general sense of the plan on the drawings below.

As always, your interest and input in this project are appreciated; thank you very much.


Very truly yours,

Carrie Lewis, Superintendent Milwaukee Water Works October 3, 2005
