Schools to Ask for Demo Permission
A couple of different educational institutions will ask the La Crosse city council for demolition approval this month. WTC is looking to tear down an old motel to build a greenhouse as part of its expansion plans. The tech school also has the wrecking ball in mind for a house on eighth street. Viterbo wants to raze a couple of houses next to the Mathy center to add more parking spots. The La Crosse school district also has a rezoning request for a number of separate lots on the northside where a new elementary school will get built although the district hasn't asked to tear anything down just yet. In total, the requests will result in over 20 thousand dollars less property tax revenue for local governments.
