WIS 164 (County J) - Public involvement, Lisbon resolution

Resolution 7-99

Waukesha County resolution opposing the alternative alignment of WIS 164

WHEREAS, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is currently engaged in a study of WIS 164 between WIS 60 and WIS 190; and

WHEREAS, as part of that study, alternative highway designs and alignments are routinely evaluated; and

WHEREAS, one such alignment, known as the "power line alternative" involves an alignment along the current north south WIS 74 corridor, then east along County K, and then northerly along the Wisconsin Electric Power Company transmission line right of way; and

WHEREAS, this alternative alignment would adversely effect properties, neighborhoods and traffic flow along County K; and

WHEREAS, this alternative is opposed by the villages of Lannon and Menomonee Falls because of the detrimental impacts in their communities; and

WHEREAS, this alternative does not appear to address the traffic flow generated by development along and west of the WIS 164 corridor; and

WHEREAS, this alternative is not consistent with existing Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, (SEWRPC) transportation plans;

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the town board of the town of Lisbon opposes the proposed alternative and respectfully requests the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and SEWRPC to continue to pursue alternatives along the existing WIS 164 corridor and other alternative alignments which would more efficiently and safely address the traffic needs of the area.
