Urban planning expert Park goes “On the Issues” to discuss the future of the American city
As the former planning director for Denver and Milwaukee, Park led the preparation of downtown plans, numerous neighborhood plans, and comprehensive zoning code updates.
MILWAUKEE – Peter Park, one of America’s leading experts in city planning and urban design, will discuss the future of the American city in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, Sept. 10, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
As the former planning director for Denver and Milwaukee, Park led the preparation of downtown plans, numerous neighborhood plans, and comprehensive zoning code updates. He also has served as a design critic in urban planning and design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Park has strong opinions about what works in American cities and what leads to sustainable urban development. He’ll share that vision, along with some observations about his former hometown — Milwaukee — during his visit to the Law School.
The event is at capacity; signup for a waiting list is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.
Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
