North Coast Online shares some hard data about post-Park East Milwaukee. Seems that John Norquist’s silver bullet project has done nothing to halt the declining population in Milwaukee. Craig postulates…
So along with Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Baltimore as cities we might do well not to emulate, how about we add Milwaukee to the list? In fact the next time Milwaukee’s former Mayor comes to town to explain to us yokels how we can improve our lot, maybe someone could ask him why, if his ideas are so good, his city’s still shrinking as fast as our little burg.
If growth is what we’re looking for, then we should really stop our hero-worship of failure.
