Milwaukee County acquired the property at 6330 W North Avenue in East Tosa pursuant to a tax lien foreclosure in 2014. The property has since remained vacant. Working in partnership with Milwaukee County, on May 22, 2018, the City of Wauwatosa's Community Development Authority (CDA) executed an Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement for the property transfer of 6330 W North Avenue to the CDA.
- As the current owner of the property, the CDA issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for redevelopment of the site on June 25, 2018.
- Proposals were due on August 9, 2018 per the Official Notice. The tentative process timeline depicts the review and approval process for submitted proposals.
- The CDA directly notified neighboring properties within 200 feet of the site of the RFP issuance.
- The CDA received three proposals in response to the RFP:
- The CDA met on Monday, August 20, 2018 at 12 pm in Committee Room #1 to discuss the meeting process and public involvement during review of the proposals.
- On Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 6:00 PM in Committee Room #1, the CDA met to begin their discussion of the three submitted proposals. Following a summary discussion of the process and the proposals, public comment and questions were taken prior to a closed session discussion involving proprietary information. The comments and questions were shared with the developers for answers to be incorporated into their presentations.
- The developers presented their proposals to the CDA on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 6:00 PM in the Upper Civic Center room. The public was able to submit comments / questions via comment cards distributed at the meeting; no public comments were received. Three presentations were given:
- The CDA will meet on Thursday, September 27th, 2018 at 12:00 PM in Committee Room #1 for discussion and possible action regarding the redevelopment proposals. The discussion will be in closed session, but will reconvene in open session if the CDA takes action on the proposals.
- This webpage will continually be updated with information on the project as things progress. Meeting agendas and minutes for the CDA can be found on the City's Meeting Portal.
