A New Coffee Shop / Restaurant / Retail Store Proposed for 5100 W. Blue Mound Rd.
On November 13th, Ald. Michael Murphy hosted a neighborhood information session for area residents to meet and greet Dan Sidner and Joe Muench, who want to open Story Hill BKC in the vacant Goldfish Uniforms store at 5100 W. Blue Mound Road.
Dan and Joe are co-owners of Maxie's Southern Comfort Restaurant at 68th & Fairview, and Blue's Egg Restaurant at 76th & Blue Mound. They presented their plans for a coffee shop (the "C" in Story Hill BKC) during the day, a sit-down restaurant from 4:00-10:00 p.m. (the "K" is for "Kitchen"), and a retail space to sell beer, wine and spirits (the "B" is for "bottle").
The next time you're walking past the store, take a look at the architectural plans posted in the window.
Great Neighborhood and MPD Teamwork - Stolen Bicycles Recovered!
There were several bicycles stolen from Story Hill neighbors this past Saturday, August 18. But with the vigilance and willingness of our neighbors to get involved, the thieves have been caught and bikes have been recovered. If you are missing a bike, please contact District #3 - Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7233.
A reminder - Keep your garage doors closed and locked. Consider locking down your bikes, lawn mowers, and snow blowers to something sturdy in your garage. Keep your car doors locked, as well as your home doors and windows when you're away. Don't give criminals any opportunities to make you a victim - send the message that Story Hill is NOT an easy target!
Update - I-94 East/West Freeway Corridor Study
My thanks to all Story Hill neighbors who took the time on July 30 and 31 to attend the latest State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) public information meetings concerning their study to reconstruct the I-94 East/West freeway corridor.
The Story Hill Neighborhood Association has sent a position paper to WisDOT commenting on the latest options and alternatives offered at the July meetings. The letter includes neighbors' input shared during the July meetings, as well as ideas and suggestions shared one-on-one with the SHNA board and at recent neighborhood meetings. Here's the link to our letter. Each Story Hill household will soon receive a hard copy of the letter.
Story Hill a "Next Big Neighborhood"
Check out this April 2013 Milwaukee Magazine article proclaiming that Story Hill is one of the "next big neighborhoods" for buying a home.
Confirms what we've known all along!
Recently, neighborhoods around Story Hill have experienced a rise in home burglaries. Ald. Michael Murphy reminds us to make sure your home, garage, and vehicles are locked at all times. Open and unlocked doors make crime easier for those looking for the right opportunity. Keep Story Hill safe and be a good neighbor - contact the Milwaukee Police Dept when you see suspicious and/or criminal activities!
