As Project Milwaukee continues, we hear how communities in the southern corridor approach land-use planning. Each city, town and village has its own comprehensive land use plan, but some wish planning was conducted more regionally.
For Project Milwaukee: Southern Connections, we take a look at how differences in rail transit has affected development in Milwaukee versus Chicago. Bob Johnston is a Chicago-based correspondent for Trains Magazine, published by Kalmbach in Waukesha. He spoke with Dan Harmon.
We get some perspective on the importance of the Port of Milwaukee. Leah Dobkin is the author of the book Soul of a Port: The History and Evolution of the Port of Milwaukee, published by The History Press. She spoke with Stephanie Lecci in January.
