Intergovernmental Cooperation
Barton School Apartments
Washington County

In 2012, Washington County’s Brownfield Site Redevelopment Program, with the objective of transforming formerly contaminated and unused industrial sites into new and vibrant economic developments, includes a collaboration of five municipalities with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Economic Development Washington County. The Barton School Apartments project in West Bend is a recent beneficiary of this program. It consists of 22 historically-preserved apartments renovated from the former 1924 Barton Elementary School building, and 18 townhomes constructed on the former school playground.
