Nearly 100 years ago, civic leaders in Milwaukee began planning and implementing a transformation: the vibrant ecology that was the Milwaukee Estuary became an economic machine, Milwaukee's Inner Harbor. A century later, only traces of either history remain. The estuary is now an EPA Area of Concern, and many industries have gone, leaving brownfields behind. Identified as a catalytic project in the City's Refresh Milwaukee Plan, the Harbor District is the subject of new efforts at revitalization. Bruce Keyes, Of Counsel with Foley & Lardner, will share the vision for transforming the Harbor District into an economically and ecologically working waterfront.
