Oops. Steve Edlund e-mails to say the variance for the height of the new stadium was denied.
Mayor Nelson is not happy and he stuck around after the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting to "vent" on board members afterward.
The vote was 3-2 against on a finding of 4 facts and the vote was the same on all 4 facts.
The stadium will be proposed to the Plan Commission with a flat roof over the press box, something that will not be consistent with the Rotary Building, a standard quoted in the Freeman to be used by the Waukesha Parks Board President as criteria. Will she still vote "yes"? Of course.
Good thing they build these stadiums from the ground up. It'll give the mayor time to fix this. Otherwise, maybe we could use the flat roof for helicopter parking?
