City Attorney Spencer spoke at the Closing ceremony of the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee’s 7-acre land sale to the Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin (VOW) for the development of the Gary G. Wetzel Veteran Village. That development just west of N. 60th Street and Green Tree Road, in Alderwoman Lewis’s 9th District, will provide up to 48 tiny homes, and a community center, and support services for veterans. Along with City Attorney Spencer and VOW representatives, Ald. Lewis, Mayor Barrett, and DCD Commissioner Crump spoke at the Closing ceremony about this important project in our City. Gary G. Wetzel is a Milwaukee native, a U.S. Army Veteran, and a Congressional Medal of Honor Award Winner. The City Attorney’s Office provides important legal representation to the City of Milwaukee and its Redevelopment Authority, including handling the legal aspects of real estate and development deals like this. We look forward to the groundbreaking for this project.
