Viewpoint Luncheon: Replicating the Success of the Menomonee Valley
While redevelopment efforts are not yet complete, Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley has undergone a remarkable renaissance, transforming from a blighted industrial corridor into a vibrant center of industry, entertainment, and recreation. What were the key public policies that drove change in the Menomonee Valley? How were financial resources secured to foster redevelopment? Was the Valley’s recent success the product of its unique location and good fortune, or are there important lessons that should be applied to other major redevelopment efforts in Milwaukee?
Join the Public Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore the Menomonee Valley redevelopment story and what it means for the next phase of Valley development and other redevelopment efforts in Milwaukee.
First, Forum staff will present a newly released report that analyzes the history of the Valley’s redevelopment and its policy implications.
Then, a panel of economic development leaders will discuss whether and how that history might be replicated elsewhere:
Laura Bray, Executive Director, Menomonee Valley Partners
Kathryn Dunn, Vice President, Greater Milwaukee Foundation
Dave Misky, Assistant Executive Director, Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee
Julia Taylor, President, Greater Milwaukee Committee
Wyman Winston, Executive Director, WHEDA
Moderated by: Mike Gousha, Distinguished Fellow in Law and Public Policy, Marquette University Law School
