It’s time for the Town of Port to stand up for its citizens who have had to endure unacceptable noise from Briggs & Stratton for years

The term “good corporate citizen” is used so much around here these days that it’s ready to become a cliche. And that’s a good thing. It means that the boards of directors and executives of increasing numbers of industries doing business in the small cities, villages and towns of Ozaukee County understand their responsibility to support their communities in more ways than paying taxes and providing jobs and to be sensitive to the impact of their operations on their neighbors.

    Here’s a safe prediction: Briggs & Stratton will not be getting a Good Corporate Citizen of the Year award from the Town of Port Washington.

    Briggs & Stratton is the company that took away hundreds of jobs in Port Washington but left a nuisance.

    Briggs bought Simplicity Manufacturing Co., Port Washington’s biggest employer, in 2004, then three years later shut down the operation that employed 325 people. It sent the plant’s lawn equipment and snow thrower production and the jobs to Georgia. But it did not send along its testing operation. That remains in a developed area of the Town of Port Washington, where it has been annoying nearby residents with its noise for years.

    The testing involves running many engines for long hours. Neighboring homeowners say the engines run 15 hours a day on pavement from which their sound reverberates. With no noise-reduction measures in place, the sound of the droning engines is loud, travels far, is inescapable in homeowners’ yards and even penetrates the walls and windows of homes.

    
    There ought to be a law against this sort of nuisance, and it turns out there is. The Town of Port Washington has an ordinance requiring excessive noise to be controlled. More than a dozen neighbors came to a Town Board meeting last week to ask why the ordinance is not being enforced.

    Good question.

    The ordinance exists for just such circumstances as these. The neighbors and town officials have repeatedly asked Briggs & Stratton to do something about noise, with no results except a nose-thumbing from the company. The next step should be enforcement of the noise ordinance.

    Town officials answered the question by saying it is difficult to make citations against corporations for noise violations stick and that they were told by workers at the testing facility that suggestions that acoustic fencing be installed are “working their way through corporate.” There has to be a better answer.

     When the complaining residents persisted at the meeting, Town Chairman Jim Melichar reportedly got a bit testy. Elected officials have a right to display some irritation, of course, but citizens exercising their right to petition their local government for relief from a well documented nuisance should not be the target of it. The chairman’s testiness would serve the town better if it were aimed at the company that has defied the town’s reasonable efforts to effect a mitigation of the nuisance.

    It’s evident that everyone is frustrated. The neighbors keep asking for help and don’t get it. Town officials have tried to reason with the company and have gotten nowhere. Yet Briggs & Stratton has given no sign whatsoever that it is interested in doing even the minimum required to qualify as a good corporate citizen.

    That leaves one option: Put the town attorney on the case, get the sheriff’s department to serve a paper, enforce the ordinance.



 
Don’t clutter harbor views PDF Print E-mail

Commercial development in open space at the north end of the Port harbor, as called for in a downtown redevelopment plan, would be a mistake

As late as the middle of the 20th century, the north slip of the Port Washington harbor was virtually surrounded by buildings. Views of the water were blocked by ramparts of brick and mortar. At the north end of the harbor, the massive presence of a Wisconsin Chair Co. building made the harbor invisible to anyone walking or driving on Washington Street or living in the nearby neighborhood.

    Progress came and in an era of remarkably enlightened land use the buildings were cleared away and the north slip was remade into a heart-of-the city marina embraced by walkways, a park and open space that ensures the satisfying water views that are now Port Washington’s signature.

    Now there is talk of a new round of progress, but this progress has a whiff of the not-so-progressive past about it in that it calls for filling the open space at the north end of the harbor, the very place where the chair factory structure once stood, with a building.

    Granted, the building suggested in a study commissioned by the city for a downtown redevelopment plan is a restaurant or brew pub, and not part of a four-story manufacturing plant, but it would nonetheless be a structure needlessly plopped in the middle of one of Port Washington’s public water views.

    The rationale repeated at a recent meeting of the Plan Commission is that the site, currently a parking lot, is too valuable to not be developed.

    The notion that commercial development must trump other uses of lakefront land doesn’t square with the lesson learned in the city’s journey from a cluttered, overbuilt and eventually blighted waterfront to today’s welcoming and aesthetically rewarding downtown harbor district: What is too valuable here—too valuable to sacrifice for commercial development—is public access to the water, including the visual access afforded by uncompromised views.

    Developing the open space at the end of the north slip would not only be a wrong use of lakefront property, it would be an unnecessary one. There is plenty of land available for commercial development north of the harbor, including a large tract of dramatically located lakefront land across Washington Street from the harbor, currently the site of a restaurant and an enormous parking lot, that has been crying for development for years. It could accommodate the restaurant or brew pub of which the planners are so enamored and other development as well, all with marvelous lake and harbor views, assuming nothing is built on the parking lot site.

     A few steps up Washington Street, the vacant former home of a Dairy Queen franchise and a series of failed restaurants, the dilapidated building with the gauche orange and green roof, sits on a large lot that will one day be appealing to developers.

    Port Washington doesn’t need to sacrifice the public spaces around the harbor to encourage development, even if that were an acceptable concept, which it is not.

    The planners are correct, however, in their judgment that parking is not a critical need at the lakefront. If anything, there is too much space now devoted to parking lots. A better treatment of the north slip parking lot than turning it into a restaurant site would be to redesign it as a landscaped area with fewer parking places but more green space and amenities for folks who want to tarry and take in the views and the splendid lakeside ambience.

    The site is too valuable to be used for anything else.


 
The school board’s assignment PDF Print E-mail

A survey of Port-Saukville School District residents offered little help; now the board has to figure how to meet the most pressing school building needs at a tolerable cost

A survey of residents of the Port Washington-Saukville School District revealed that voters would not be likely to approve a referendum calling for spending $25 million to $97 million on school building improvements.

    That outcome had a probability roughly equivalent to the odds of the sun rising in the east each morning.


    Near their upper end, the combined spending proposals would have resulted in one of the most expensive school referendums ever attempted in Wisconsin. It should have been obvious that this would be beyond the means of the Port-Saukville district.


    Conducting a survey to assess taxpayers’ opinions on school-building spending made sense as a way to identify projects likely to be supported in a referendum. But because the proposals prepared by an architectural firm that stands to profit from school construction projects were so grandiose and expensive, this survey offered limited guidance to the school board.


    It was more than a little surprising to learn that the board chose not to scrutinize the architects’ proposals before they were presented to the public, that it had only a very limited role in shaping the recommendation.


    Without the board’s input, people responding to the survey had no clear idea of what the district’s realistic building needs are or how they might be met at a rational spending level.

     The survey did show that a plurality of respondents prefer remodeling the high school rather than replacing it with a new building and think high school needs should be addressed before elementary school improvements. Yet these results should not be interpreted to mean the high school is necessarily the priority over the elementary schools, because the survey proposals were presented without the context of what are the school district’s most pressing building needs. The most definitive finding of the survey remains the obvious one—that $25 million to $97 million is too much to spend.

    School Supt. Michael Weber told Ozaukee Press the school board is intent on holding a referendum as early as next April, and that is certainly good news. The elementary schools and the high school have maintenance problems and space deficiencies; they need to be fixed sooner rather than later.


    The school board missed an opportunity to explain the district’s building needs and get more specific guidance from taxpayers in the survey. Meeting those needs, however, is still more important than responding to public preferences. Voter approval is needed for the spending, but it is the board’s responsibility to set the school building improvement priorities. If, as a hypothetical example, the elementary schools’ needs are more pressing than the high school’s, the referendum should be configured to address them.             


    The survey at least reminded school board members of something they had surely figured out for themselves—that school district residents will not agree to spend the astonishing amount of money needed to check off all of the items on the architects’ laundry list and build a new or remodeled high school while also upgrading the elementary schools.


    Now it is up to the board to do the work it was elected to do: establish the district’s building priorities, craft proposals to address them at what is presumed to be a tolerable cost and make the case to the voters.
