Park or housing? City weighs bluffland use.
La Crosse officials are considering whether 160 acres of city-owned bluffland intended to be a park would be better used for residential development. The University of Wisconsin System sold the former Experimental Farm to the city in 1963 for $38,900 with the understanding it would become a park.
Despite the original intent, city council member Andrea Richmond said,“If there’s an opportunity to put some taxable property up there, we should really take a hard look at it.”
