Longtime Tosa bar wants to create smoking area for patrons

Aug. 4, 2010

Walter's on North, 6930 W. North Ave., is the latest Wauwatosa business to seek permission to build a patio for the purpose of creating a smoking area.

Walter's has been in business for more than 40 years. The owner, George Grbich, has requested a conditional-use permit from the city.

Numerous bars and restaurants constructed outdoor seating areas in preparation of the statewide smoking ban that went into effect July 5. City officials anticipated another round of requests as local businesses adjust to the no-smoking policy.

The Plan Commission will take up the request at 7 p.m. Monday.
