Resistance to Franciscan Skemp Parking Plans
Some demolition plans by Franciscan Skemp have their critics. La Crosse City council member Andrea Richmond is very clearly not a fan of a plan of the medical center to knock down buildings to lay some asphalt for parking. During a council committee meeting this week, Richmond says she'd rather Franciscan add on to its existing parking ramp. Not in the the medical center's immediate plans, however; so the plan is to tear down six buildings in their campus area instead. Along with the parking lot, Franciscan also plans to add green space and community gardens. All of the land will be taxable.
