Community Learning Center Tabled by Greendale Trustees

The Village Board put off approving the ordinance outlining governance of the learning center to let other entities involved take a look at some changes in wording.

Approval for the Community Learning Center took a brief setback Tuesday after the Greendale Village Board tabled a resolution to establish governance of the new facility.

Village Manager Todd Michaels recommended trustees table the resolution Tuesday because there were some wording changes made by the Greendale School Board. Although Michaels said the wording changes were fairly minor, he said they were significant enough to have them go back to consideration to the other governing bodies involved in the project.

Greendale Schools, the Village of Greendale and the Greendale Public Library 

Under the plan, the Public Library, the Health Department and the Park and Recreation Department would be housed under one roof in the current public library building at 5647 Broad Street.

The board approved the conceptual plans of the learning center in July, which includes turning the Greendale Public Library and multi-purpose building into the learning center. The center will also house the village’s parks and recreation department, moving it from the Greendale School District offices.  

Construction of the facility is anticipated to begin possibly in January with completion in June.

This is the school board making changed that show they don't know what they are doing.

So the school board delays things again.

FYI - It was the school board who came up with the idea of creating the CLC in the first place, so while a recent word change may slightly delay construction, it was at their original prompting that this project even got off the ground. Maybe we should look to the Village Trustees, who are quick to spend $30,000 on a sign to attract people to their shops and who were eager to construct apartments downtown and take away school grounds for parking lots, but are balking at the idea of a mixed-use community learning center.
