New Greenhouse, New Homes On Drawing Board For WTC
Western Technical College is planning new uses for two properties on the south side of La Crosse...
An old greenhouse near the marsh will be demolished to make room for energy-efficient houses...and a new greenhouse will be built at the old Ivy Motel site on 7th Street. The two projects are part of the Western Tech referendum on the ballot next week, but college president Lee Rasch says funding will be found for the project even if the referendum is defeated. Mayo Clinic and the Hillview Urban Agriculture Center are helping fund the new greenhouse, where they'll be able to grow food and plants for the Franciscan hospital.
