Massive development eyed for Hill Farms property on Madison`s West Side

Ken Notes: Still in the pencil rendering stage but looking nice none the less. I still love the idea of this area becoming a retirement promise land for the boomers.

Kohler Golf Course Plan Faces Key Vote Monday In Sheboygan

Ken Notes: Attention Kohler, if this does not go well I can get you some land for a resort complex next to University Ridge and you would have 5,000 potential guests training at EPIC every week all year long.

State program awards grants for coastal resources

Ken Notes: Our coasts could and should be an economic mecca for Wisconsin. Think about it Milwaukee to Manitowoc, The Door Peninsula, Green Bay to Marinette, up to Ashland over to Superior, down to the St Croix, Mississippi and Wisconsin, catch the lakes in Madison and Geneva, not to mention all the lakes, rivers and streams in between. We could exponentially increase our tourism revenue by improving opening these shores to the public... P.S. 100K is nice but I will always wonder what we could have done with the half billion we spent dredging the Fox.

Quick Question: Should the county require affordable housing as part of the redevelopment of the former Messner Inc. site on East Washington Avenue
