A $5.4 million plan to redesign a 16-block stretch of North Avenue known as East Tosa will go before two city committees this week, capping a year-long process to create a strategic plan to redevelop the area.

The East Tosa North Avenue Plan calls for incremental public project improvements, from 2011-12 through 2025-26, to help make East Tosa a destination business district that focuses on niche markets and complements the adjacent neighborhoods.

Welcome to East Tosa

East Tosa is a progressive urban community offering niche shopping and dining experiences interconnecting with vibrant, established neighborhoods.

Located on the east side of Wauwatosa, East Tosa offers a classic Main Street feel with tree-lined residential neighborhoods adjoined to a vibrant sixteen block trade district offering a wide array of goods and services.  East Tosa is home to a respected school system, many fine restaurants, and thriving businesses. Its convenience to the Milwaukee metropolitan area offers easy access to major league sports, a nationally recognized zoo, and abundant cultural and social activities.

Though much of the charm of East Tosa stems from its historic beginnings, it is bolstered by its spirited residents who are committed to knowing and supporting each other in an environmentally, fiscally, and economically sustainable lifestyle.

In the summer of 2011, East Tosa’s Plan was approved by the Common Council.
