Alderman Zielinski Getting Tough Again

Alderman: Go Green or Go Away

"Citywide Development LLC is the first private developer in Bay View to test a local alderman’s demand for green construction.
Tony Zielinski, the alderman representing Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood, refuses to support project plans unless they require at least half of a new building’s energy come from renewable or on-site sources. He is asking Citywide, which is planning a four-story apartment building, to meet the benchmark."

Link to the Daily Reporter story:

Thanks Alderman Zielinski for holding developers to what they claim they want to do, and/or convincing them to set good examples in the community.
