This week has been a newsworthy week for our Rethink 794 Campaign!
Not only was the campaign covered in the Congress for New Urbanism’s (CNU) newly released “Freeways without Futures” report, but the plan also made it into the City of Milwaukee’s Downtown Plan draft recommendations.
CNU’s biannual report highlights the top ten highways that local campaign organizers and activists are seeking to revitalize by dismantling. Check out the report and learn more the great work happening across the country to rethink downtown highways.
This week, the City of Milwaukee released some of its draft recommendations for their Downtown Plan update. In a webinar hosted by UWM, long-range planners from the City and members of the Downtown Milwaukee BID shared their draft recommendations, which included rethinking 794. The plan is still in draft form, with the official report being released on April 26th and the final public meeting being held on May 11th.
