What is the project?
The Wauwatosa referendum calls for four new elementary buildings, with two of the structures maintaining historic architectural features. The district's other 10 aging buildings would undergo safety and security upgrades, heating-ventilating and air-conditioning improvements, and installation of flexible classrooms.
On Thursday, February 21, the Design Review Board reviewed the initial proposed designs for Lincoln Elementary School which is being rebuilt as part of the Wauwatosa School District's $124.9 million referendum project. The board discussed aesthetic direction of the project and asked the architect to study options for the building addition.
They will visit the design review board on March 21.
In the case of the proposed design for Lincoln Elementary School, they would also visit other city meetings for different approvals:
- Plan Commission for a conditional use permit. (All schools are conditional uses, as they are in residential areas.) There will be a public hearing date set.
- Common Council for final approval.
Underwood Elementary will go to Plan Commission on April 8. Check the Meeting Portal for more information.
Other buildings in the school district are not on any upcoming agendas yet.
