On November 30, 2023, a neighborhood meeting was held for the Hale Park Highlands area to discuss a potential water project. The presentation has been slightly modified to address some of the questions/comments at the meeting. At the meeting, it was noted that the parcels highlighted in blue (slides 8, 9 & 10) would receive a survey in December for further analysis. The decision has been made to NOT resurvey the blue hatched parcels (aka The Loop). See modified presentation.

Franklin’s Fire Station #2 (9911 S. 60th Street) was opened in 2001 in order to provide fire protection and Emergency Medical Services to the Franklin Business Park, which was experiencing rapid growth at that time. Since 2021, fire department staffing has lagged relative to incoming economic development and emergency response call volume, and Station #2 remains the only fire station in Milwaukee County not consistently staffed to national standards of four personnel. When Franklin Fire Station #2 was constructed, it was assumed that a fourth fire station would be required to provide coverage to the southwest portion of Franklin if and when development occurred there. Significant residential development is ongoing in this area, which is not adequately served by existing fire station locations and current staffing levels. This PowerPoint provides an analysis of current and future fire department staffing and deployment options.
