Analysis
This ordinance creates deconstruction requirements for the removal of Milwaukee’s older and more historic primary dwelling structures, for the purposes of:

a. Maximizing the salvage of valuable building materials, especially old-growth structural lumber, for reuse, thereby supporting the city’s goal of being a sustainable community.

b. Reducing the amount of demolition waste disposed of in landfills, thereby saving city and taxpayer dollars, extending the lives of existing landfills and reducing the need to create new landfills.

c. Creating employment opportunities for city residents, as the deconstruction process is much more labor-intensive than demolition, which relies on the use of heavy mechanical equipment.
