Milwaukee's Big List of Wishes

Planners in Milwaukee have announced a slate of plaza and public space improvement projects that they hope will help catalyze urban regeneration in the city.

"The projects are designed to help accomplish the new plan's goals, which include creating better walking connections between downtown and the lakefront, and developing smaller forms of downtown housing, such as townhomes. The projects list was created by Department of City Development employees, working with suggestions from people who live or work downtown."

Proposals include renovations of numerous squares and plazas within the city, as well as improved pedestrian amenities and a downtown streetcar.
