Committee Changes Could Speed Up Ona Waterfront Plans
Part of Onalaska's waterfront revitalization became a reality this year, when Highway 35 was rebuilt...
Now, what about other parts of the plan, like a new cultural center? Onalaska Mayor Joe Chilsen is confident that the building can be completed next year, as scheduled. Trouble is, there have been some disputes about the building's design, and about state requirements, such as an elevator. Instead of cancelling the building proposal, the city council recently approved a committee change so it can monitor the project more closely.
