A group of Bay View homes could become a historic district. That might stop future development plans.
A group of Bay View homes could be declared a city historic district — which could halt future development plans for those properties.

The proposal would affect seven houses on the east side of South Superior Street between East Russell Avenue and East Ontario Street.

Those homes would become the Puddlers’ Cottages Historic District under an application for permanent historic designation filed with the Milwaukee Historic Preservation Commission.

Any changes to the homes` exteriors — ranging from minor alterations to demolition —would then need commission approval. Commission rulings can be appealed to the Common Council...

Ken Notes: I have to ask, is this really about the historic value of these homes or an attempt to stop new development?
