Wauwatosa Village Streetscapes and Parks

Wauwatosa Village Streetscapes and Parks Overview

Wauwatosa, WI

GAI’s Community Solutions Group led the 2015 visioning of a previously stalled 2014 effort to redesign several streets and intersections in the historic Wauwatosa Village. The new effort, led by Pete Sechler, has been a resounding success, with broad support for a complete redesign of park space, 6 “gateway intersections,” and more than 6,000 linear feet of streetscape. This is remarkable not only because of the prior community conflict, but also because the new solutions represent many progressive ideas, such as road realignment and “diets,” low-impact rain gardens, shared space street designs, parklets, integrated cycle trails, and reverse-angle parking on the two primary shopping streets. The project is currently under construction, and Phase 1 had its grand opening in summer 2018.
