Wauwatosa Housing Study & Needs Analysis
The City has completed its first ever city-wide Housing Study & Needs Analysis. 

The results of this Housing Study and Needs Analysis will help decision makers, stakeholders and community members develop a meaningful sense of the housing market as well as an understanding of key housing issues. The study should provide a measured assessment of present and future unmet housing demand that focuses on creating a deeper understanding of short-to-mid-term housing demand (5-year, 10-year, 15-year.) The report is intended to offer a solid, data-driven basis for formulating community-specific housing priorities.

September 2017 Community Affairs Presentation

It is intended that Community Affairs will discuss and recommend to the Common Council the policies and programs within this document that it believes are best suited to Wauwatosa and achieving the goals of the Council. Not every option in the document needs to be undertaken, nor would it be feasible to do so. Rather, it is intended that an agreed upon selection of the policies and programs in the document would become the City's housing policies.

Milwaukee County Grounds
Milwaukee County Grounds Master Plan and Design Guidelines
This document was adopted by the Common Council on December 21, 2004, is a master plan intended to give an idea of possible development including approximate size and layout of buildings. It provides a scheme for approximately 800,000 square feet of new development while minimizing the environmental impact of the development on the surrounding areas. There is an emphasis on sustainable development practices and green building design as well as the preservation of the Eschweiler complex. In developing this plan, the goal was to provide direction on creating a high quality, environmentally friendly development without identifying specific uses. The guidelines provide control over the scale and design of buildings and spaces without mandating specific building footprints or locations. This allows the City to retain control over the final design while allowing maximum flexibility for developers to develop proposals that are economically viable.
