JS Editorial: Free the Marriott

The dead hand of the past isn’t even dead; it’s just been resting its eyes.

The Milwaukee Common Council shouldn’t allow the city’s Historic Preservation Commission to hold hostage the proposed hotel on E. Wisconsin Ave….

Everything the commission has done – including the possible deal-killing “approval” granted this week – has served to delay or block the proposal’s progress. If the commission gets its way, the project probably dies, and those old decrepit buildings on Wisconsin Ave. and Milwaukee St. will remain eyesores for who knows how much longer.
