Journal Sentinel Story – “Zoning panel approves revised plans for St. Ann facility”

By October 29, 2014No Comments2 min read

The Journal Sentinel shared an exciting update about our Bucyrus Campus: “Zoning panel approves revised plans for St. Ann facility”

The article covers recent changes to the St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care Bucyrus Campus that will blend day care and medical programs for children, frail elderly and people with disabilities on Milwaukee’s north side:

The two-story building would provide child care for about 220 children, after-school care for 40 children, adult day care for 70 people, dementia care for 30 people, medical and dental clinics and other services. The center would have 150 full-time and 25 part-time employees.


Part of the site would be set aside for a future expansion of the center.


The Common Council approved the plans in March 2013, and the St. Ann Center has raised $17.5 million to build the north side facility.


But the initial cost estimate of $14.6 million increased to $20.5 million, according to a Department of City Development report. So the nonprofit group has made changes, including reducing the building’s height by just over 2 feet to cut $3 million in costs. Those minor changes require additional city approval, which the council’s Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee recommended Tuesday on a 4-1 vote.

This approval brings us one step closer to officially purchasing the property. Fundraising continues with hopes to finish the campus in it’s entirety vs 2 phases.  To donate or for fundraising ideas, contact Casey at 414-977-5062 or
