Wauwatosa and DNR officials torpedoed a proposal by Cobalt Partners to straddle the Milwaukee River with a two-story, 34,000-foot fire station.
The plan would violate state and local flood control regulations, officials said.
The group Friends of Milwaukee Rivers made sure that details of the proposal were understood by residents, who probably didn't need much persuasion to see what a really, really bad idea it was.
Cobalt declined to comment on the DNR's findings. Maybe Cobalt would comment on this: what the hell were thinking about?
