MADISON SCHOOL DISTRICT EYES POSSIBLE 2020 REFERENDUM WITH FOCUS ON HIGHS SCHOOLS

The Madison School District could ask voters next year to pay for upgrades to decades-old boilers, cramped athletic facilities and dated classroom space across its high schools - buildings in which consultants have suggested improvements of up to $280 million.

Around the State and Points Elsewhere  


Jay Bhakta is developing three hotels, totaling over 300 rooms, in downtown Milwaukee, and he's eager to begin construction. If that work starts within the next 30 to 60 days, Bhakta can probably open those hotels by July 2020, when the Democratic National Convention brings 50,000 visitors to southeastern Wisconsin.

The developer of a Bay View boutique hotel is now planning a similar, but larger, project in downtown Milwaukee. Charles Bailey, who opened the eight-room Kinn Guesthouse at 2535 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in 2017, wants to operate another Kinn hotel at 600 N. Broadway. That nine-story, 62-room hotel would blend an existing four-story building with five more floors built atop it, Bailey said Friday.
