The new Kendal Lofts project has caused some issues for drivers.
Construction of the Kendal Lofts project on the corner of West and Main in downtown Waukesha, which had stalled last January, now crosses into the street. Drivers must attempt to maneuever the orange barrels that line the two-way Main Street as they turn onto West Street from Wisconsin Avenue. The Main Street bars will see a bustle of activity for St. Patrick's Day, so the construction may become an issue if it's as busy as expected. When the Waukesha Plan Commission approved the development of the 42-unit apartment building, it was met with concerns about the lack of parking availability in that area. Although construction on the project had stalled, the opening is now scheduled for the summer of 2013.

Opponents of plans to pave the recreational trail have strong words for county officials at informational meeting.
While some residents attended the meeting in favor of the Bugline Trail Improvement Project, the overwhelming majority of area resents who came were — in a word — livid. Citizens gathered at the Pauline Haass Public Library in Sussex Thursday evening to meet with Waukesha County parks officials and members of the project’s design team. While there was no formal presentation, about 10 informational boards lined the room outlining specifics about the project, and residents could submit their comments on paper in a comment box. Some of the first residents at the meeting were Menomonee Falls residents Jim and Bonnie Ziolecki, and they had no problem asking the almost 10 project officials the tough questions. “Alright, so who woke up one day …
