Portion of Town of Waukesha placed in city's future water service area

Jan. 25, 2013 12:05 p.m. | Town of Waukesha -- A northern slice of the town will be included in the City of Waukesha's future water service area and become part of the city's request for Lake Michigan water, under a resolution approved unanimously by the Town Board.

The town board drew a line on a map and all properties in the town west of Springdale Road and north of Racine Ave. and state Highway 59 could be served by city water if needed, Town Chairman Angie Van Scyoc said Friday.

The board took the action at a meeting Thursday, just a few days before a state deadline of Feb. 1 to make a decision on whether to participate in the city's future water service area. A deadline was needed so that the state Department of Natural Resources could assess the need for the regional service area and finish its review of the city's application for Great Lakes water, DNR officials said.

Waukesha City Administrator Ed Henschel said Friday he was pleased this piece of the application was complete.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission had included the Town of Waukesha, as well as portions of the City of Pewaukee and Towns of Delafield and Genesee in a City of Waukesha future water service area.

Waukesha GuitarTown in search of new artists for second phase

Jan. 21, 2013 5:15 p.m. | With the Waukesha GuitarTown project returning in 2013, the steering committee is in search of artists to design the Gibson Les Paul guitars that will be unveiled later this year.

Like last year, the project, in partnership with Gibson Guitar Corporation, will feature 10-foot fiberglass guitars and regular standard size playable guitars that artists will decorate. Most of last year’s guitars honored the late Les Paul, a music icon who was born and is buried in Waukesha.

The public project is a way to celebrate the city’s art and music culture and pay tribute to Paul, known as the Wizard of Waukesha for his inventions in the music industry.

Its goal is to also raise money for charities. Last year the project raised $105,000: $45,000 to the Waukesha Public School District for new musical instruments and art supplies; $45,000 to the Les Paul exhibit at the Waukesha County Museum; $15,000 to the Waukesha Memorial Hospital to help fund the new Community Health Clinic.

The guitar sculptures are sponsored by local businesses and individuals.
