Still A Suburb Wauwatosa

We are a neighborhood grassroots group encouraging responsible and neighborhood-friendly real estate development in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

What we're working on

Currently, we are working to encourage the city of Wauwatosa to follow its Comprehensive Plan and reject the 25 story, 354 unit luxury apartment building submitted by Johnny Vassallo (owner of Mo's Irish Pub), on the corner of Bluemound and Mayfair Roads, site of the former Edwardo's Pizza and the adjacent parking lot to the south.

Our group would love to see this site developed responsibly, however, the current proposal is illegal and would set a precedent in Wauwatosa where zoning and city development plans can be ignored allowing developers to build whatever and wherever they like.

To see why we are opposed to the current proposal, click here.
