Lucky Port has space to grow without sprawl PDF Print E-mail

Written by Ozaukee Press   
Wednesday, 07 August 2013 15:37

Contrary to officials’ laments, the fact that there is little land left to annex is not a problem; the city has room to grow as a compact community

The City of Port Washington is running out of urban-sprawl space and officials are worried.

    That was the gist of an article in last week’s Ozaukee Press quoting officials who said Port Washington is facing growth challenges because of the difficulty of annexing land to the
north (inhibited by a border agreement with the Town of Port Washington), to the west (blocked by the Village of Saukville) or to the east (stymied by Lake Michigan).

    This probably proves the point that faced with things going really well, humans need to find something to worry about. There’s a reason the phrase “too good to be true” has
endured for generations.

    The fact is, Port Washington is sitting pretty —it doesn’t need to expand its borders. It has plenty of space to develop within its city limits. Unlike municipalities that keep sprawling
over the countryside, it can grow as a compact community with all of the economic and social advantages that entails.

    In an op-ed piece published in this newspaper in June pointing out the drawbacks of annexing land far from the city’s utilities and commercial center, John Sigwart, a former Port
Washington city engineer, observed that there are more than 70 lots in developed subdivisions in the city waiting for single-family homes and duplexes. These are homesites for which
streets and sewer and water and service are already in place.

    There are scores of other lots ready to be developed in new subdivisions approved by the city, as a well as a fair amount of vacant land not yet subdivided.    

    This so-called infill development is gravy for the tax base because much of the necessary infrastructure is already in place.

    Added to that, significant residential growth can be expected downtown, building population density where it can support the commercial activity needed to bolster the city economy.
On that note, it was encouraging last week to see the Common Council open the door to facilitating some of the financing needed for the redevelopment of half of the 100 block of
Franklin Street into second and third-story condominiums above commercial space.

    The fact that those condos will overlook Lake Michigan accounts in large part for the developer’s willingness to spend upwards of $6 million on the project. The notion that Lake
Michigan somehow retards Port Washington’s growth is a thoroughly discredited shibboleth awaiting a final burial. Far from impeding development, the city’s fortunate proximity to the
lake has added valuation by pushing up property values and increasing the appeal of the downtown to investors.

    The concerns expressed by officials about the dearth of annexable land seemed intended in part to defend the city’s insistence on holding land more than two miles south of the city
center for future development.

    That land, annexed years ago for the failed VK development, may be developed one day, but any boost that gives the tax base will be diluted by the costs of extending police and
fire protection and other services to a distant enclave that will likely be a part of the community in name only.

    Port Washington doesn’t need that. It has the space to grow inward, not outward—the kind of growth that brings a community together.



 
Bad legislating comes full circle PDF Print E-mail

After the Legislature repeatedly undermined the authority of local government, a state representative claims local control as a rationale for crippling an effective highway safety program

It’s hard to get half of the public, much less 83%, to agree on anything. Yet that was the number a poll by NBC and the Wall Street Journal reported last week: 83% of Americans disapprove of Congress.

    It was the highest disapproval rating of Congress ever recorded, but only someone who had just awoken from a four-year-long nap would be surprised by it. Congress, in full view of a disgusted citizenry, has earned near universal contempt by sacrificing the nation’s economic and social progress for partisan warfare stoked by kowtowing to free-spending lobbies and narrow-minded constituencies.

    We are not aware of any recent disapproval ratings of the Wisconsin Legislature, but some of the same traits that have reduced the national legislature to an object of ridicule are evident in Madison.

    On top of partisan rancor, the current legislative session put a sour element of political hypocrisy on display with a surfeit of rhetoric proclaiming the need to limit the intrusion of state government into the affairs of Wisconsin communities and their citizens followed by a stunning series of measures that did precisely the opposite and usurped the power of local government.

    These laws and would-be laws include: outlawing locally enacted residency requirements for public workers; limiting the size of Milwaukee County Board; forcing women seeking an abortion to undergo an invasive medical procedure; prohibiting communities from imposing restrictions on cell towers; prohibiting them from requiring inspections of rental properties; prohibiting local authorities from enforcing any new federal gun regulations; strengthening the tax levy limits that take away the power of municipalities and school districts to raise taxes to meet their needs; and our favorite—overriding the city of Madison’s authority to determine its own street plowing and salting policies and giving it to the state.

    The last came from this district’s own state senator, Glenn Grothman, whose threatened law punishing the city where he works was apparently motivated by his disapproval of Madison’s cleanup efforts after one of last winter’s snowstorms.

    With serious damage already done to local government authority, one of the legislators who helped inflict it apparently now feels free to unfurl his “Don’t tread on me” banner and is claiming to be defending local control with an absurd bill intended to undermine a program that has significantly improved traffic safety in Wisconsin.

    State Rep. David Craig, a Republican from Big Bend, has drafted a measure that would give communities the power to hinder the Department of Transportation in building roundabouts. He says the law is needed because people in his district don’t like roundabouts.

    Seldom has destructive legislation been based on a weaker rationale. Many people in Wisconsin communities don’t like roundabouts when they first encounter them. Those traffic circles are–yikes!—something different. Old Devil Change can be scary.

    But drivers get used to them and like them. Saukville and Port Washington are examples of Wisconsin communities that have come to terms with roundabouts and, judging from the ease with which drivers now use them, are enjoying their manifold benefits.

    Tons of data attest to the fact that roundabouts are safer than traditional intersections regulated by traffic lights or signs, but what is most impressive about the roundabouts at North Woods Road and Market Street along Highway 33 in Saukville is the convenience and travel efficiencies they bring.

    Imagine negotiating those two congested intersections at peak traffic times if they were old-style crossings with stop-and-go lights. Prolonged waiting and dangerous left turns, some of them resulting in collisions, would be the rule. The roundabouts that have been in place for more than a year speed traffic through the intersections while limiting the chances of serious crashes.

    This editorial page has at times been critical of the DOT, particularly of its predilection for ever wider highways as the solution to virtually every traffic problem. But the agency deserves praise, and the gratitude of drivers, for its forward thinking on roundabouts. It has installed 258 of them in the past 14 years and plans many more.

    The roundabout program is one of the brighter initiatives to come from any state agency. That a legislator is so tone deaf to effective public policy that he wants to empower communities to keep this progress off their streets and highways because it’s not the same old way of doing things should be shocking, but it isn’t. It’s pretty much what we’ve come to expect.

Protecting water quality in America’s dairyland depends on farmers willing to add field runoff control to their responsibilities

Wisconsin has the second worst water quality in the nation along its Lake Michigan and Lake Superior beaches, according to the National Resources Defense Council. Wisconsin’s license-plate slogan is “America’s Dairyland.”

    The two facts are related. It is almost impossible to function in the industry of agriculture without polluting water. Which is evident in another fact: Water along beaches in northern Ozaukee County, according to 2012 testing, was more contaminated with bacteria than any in the state, except near the commercial port of Superior on Lake Superior.

    The worst Ozaukee County readings were taken at the ends of Cedar Beach Road and Highway D, bookend beaches at each side of Harrington Beach State Park in the Town of Belgium.

    The countryside inland of these beaches and the park is a patchwork of dairy farms. Runoff from the fields of these farms carries manure to Lake Michigan at three points in Harrington Beach park where stormwater flows into the lake and at other spots up and down the beach where heavy rainfall creates small streams.

    Runoff carrying animal waste is a double threat to water quality, transporting both E. coli bacteria that can sicken and even kill humans and phosphorus that promotes the algae blooms that can render beaches and swimming water unusable.

    It’s not just Ozaukee County’s or Wisconsin’s problem. Non-point agricultural pollution is considered the biggest threat to water quality in the country.


    Chemical fertilizers and silt carried off of finely tilled fields are part of the problem, but manure is the more formidable pollution culprit. The animals we need for milk and meat produce it. Farmers recycle it by putting it on fields to fertilize crops. Rain and snowmelt deliver it to water meant for recreation and drinking.

    Changes in dairy farming have worsened the problem. Cows used to make cow pies in pastures. Now most of them never get into pastures and generate manure in large herds confined in buildings. This prodigious production of animal waste is stored and then applied to fields.

    There are proven ways to mitigate non-point agricultural pollution, including buffer strips, wetland restoration, grass waterways, no-till or low-till farming practices and leaving a dense cover of crop residue on fields after harvesting.

    Ozaukee County land and water conservation personnel have been working with farmers for years using these methods in pollution abatement projects. The cost of some of this is covered by state and federal grants, although the $100,000 received by the county last year seems like a trifling amount considering the size of the problem.

    Some of the cost has to be borne by the farmers, as it should be, and many Ozaukee County farmers, to their credit, have willingly taken on this responsibility. Other businesses whose practices can affect the environment have to budget for pollution control, and farms should be no different.

     While many agricultural practices are regulated, farms get some leeway in environmental protection, earned by being the source of the nation’s food and keeper of an ethic held dear in this country, that of working the land.

    Hope for reducing the agricultural pollution of Lake Michigan rests on voluntary actions of farmers—on the hope that those who make their livings working with what nature gives them will see the need to protect all of nature’s gifts.
