Dr. Ken Harris spoke about plans to build a new juvenile detention facility in Milwaukee that are moving forward after the Milwaukee Common Council voted in favor of rezoning the construction of the facility. The facility at 7030 W. Clinton Ave. will replace the state's existing youth prison, Lincoln Hills School for Boys and Copper Lake School for Girls, located outside Irma. The last action needed for the youth prison is Mayor Cavalier Johnson's signature. The Milwaukee Common Council's Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee voted 5-0, approving the rezoning and then the proposal headed to the full Milwaukee Common Council. The Tuesday vote approved rezoning the property from industrial light to detailed planned development, which will now allow construction.
