The Village of Egg Harbor will take part in an expanded UW-Madison program that brings students, faculty and community leaders together to help local governments address important needs. The UniverCity Year program works with municipalities on challenges such as flooding mitigation, child care affordability, or highway expansion including bike and pedestrian-focused designs. Egg Harbor Village Administrator Ryan Hiese says being part of UniverCity will help the community handle some projects in a more timely manner.
The UniverCity Year program is now marking its fifth year of operations. This year marks the first time it's working with multiple communities at once.
