Milwaukee Urban Stables Expected to Make Bay View Their Home





Work is proceeding on developing stables in the Bay View neighborhood that would house Milwaukee Police Department horses, as well as therapy horses. Milwaukee Urban Stables is planned for a vacant city-owned lot at 143 E. Lincoln Ave.

The city Redevelopment Authority will review the proposed transfer of the property at its June 21 meeting, according to a hearing notice posted Thursday. The 4-acre site would be sold for $1 to an affiliate of the nonprofit Wisconsin Preservation Fund. The city acquired the former factory site in 1981 through property tax foreclosure. Milwaukee Urban Stables would combine community outreach, equine therapy and a new home for the police mounted patrol, according to the Department of City Development.
