READ: La Crosse mayor releases ‘State of the City’ address transcript

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — La Crosse Mayor Mitch Reynolds released the transcript of his State of the City address Thursday.

In the address, delivered to the Common Council on January 12, the mayor reflects on the city’s progress in 2022 on a number of priorities he identified, including housing.

“Our community, like many others, has traditionally erected roadblocks to housing development instead of clearing hurdles to ensure the community has homes within which people want to live. No longer,” Mayor Reynolds said. “Now, we are innovatively and collaboratively working with developers to help neighborhoods prosper, to advance towards goals of increasing the number of homes available as well as improving the quality of those homes overall.”
