A Lakefront Vision for the Future

News from Preserve Our Parks - Summer 2013


As you will read in an adjoining article, POP is spending its resources these days trying to stop our County and State officials from selling public land at the lakefront's Transit Center for private development. We are neither anti-development, nor opposed to the building, just to illegal use of the site.

This area is about to change: freeway ramps will be rerouted, land will be opened up for development, and traffic will need rerouting. The area could become something bolder, more functional and welcoming, with vastly improved pedestrian and biking access — something like the Milwaukee "gateway" we have been striving for.

POP asked two talented architects with broad design experience to create conceptual plans showing various ways to reconfigure the area. The plans are available for viewing and we think you would enjoy seeing them. Please consult our website to learn times and locations of the showings.
