City to purchase Elmbrook land for Percheron Square

Let me state that again: The City of Brookfield is spending $150,000 to purchase a corner of the land on which Swanson Elementary sits in order to facilitate private development.

Silly Brookfield.

Here’s the document to be reviewed by the Elmbrook School Board tomorrow night. Pages 7 and 9 give maps.

The electorate will be given a chance to vote on this decision Tuesday, December 9th. While it’s always very tempting to rain on VK’s parade, I doubt anyone will really care enough to show up.

Or will they?


  1. Didn’t they tell us that no Swanson land was going to be “needed.” When they gave up on the cornfield swap and the cross-campus easement, didn’t they say that?
