No UW Music School. Mobilize at BrothersBar.com. The words are hard to miss on a building-sized banner hung from the side of a downtown Madison tavern. The University of Wisconsin wants to take the land the bar sits on, at the corner of University Avenue and Lake Street, for a new music school.
The UW is employing emanant domain to obtain the property for the $43 million dollar project, but the bar owners have filed suit to stop that. A trial is set for April.
