In addition to Tuesday’s evening’s public workshop, two “walking audits”, open to the public, will be conducted on Wednesday, May 20. Participants will meet in front of Little Read Books and will be taken on a guided walking tour of the project area to assess existing conditions including, but not limited to: sidewalk width and condition, traffic volume, parking, street lighting, bicycle use, building appearance, use and access, pedestrian crossings, street trees and plantings, street furniture, and the park spaces and uses.
The walking audits are scheduled to take place:
Wednesday, May 20 – 9:15-10:45 am
Wednesday, May 20 – 5:45-7:15 pm

You are INVITED to attend a Preliminary Design Workshop for the Wauwatosa Village Streetscape Project
Tuesday May 19, 2015 6:00 to 8:00
Lower Civic Room, City Hall
7725 W. North Avenue
This project provides a rare opportunity to provide input into the planning process for how Wauwatosa’s unique public spaces and gathering spots are designed.
Join neighborhood and civic leaders in this two hour workshop and articulate “Your vision for the public spaces in Tosa Village”. The planning process will include concept planning and design development for:
– A Village-wide streetscape plan with elements including street furniture, lighting,
landscaping, pavement treatments, signage and more;
– The Root Common and Pocket Park renovation;
– Intersection improvements that accommodate multi-modal transit use and improve safety for pedestrians and other users. (Intersections included are Harmonee/Harwood; State/Wauwatosa; Harwood/Wauwatosa; State/Harwood; Underwood/State; Wauwatosa/Harwood.)
The meeting will be an interactive workshop designed to introduce the project, hear community observations, identify opportunities, define objectives, and begin to develop a community sensitive design.
