The relationship between Developers and Preservationists has never been an easy one.  City development is on the rise, how can the process of community input more effectively aid and improve planning and development in Milwaukee?

The following sponsored post comes from Historic Milwaukee, Inc.  Registration for the event is available on Urban Milwaukee.  For more information on advertising with Urban Milwaukee please visit our advertising page.

Historic Milwaukee Inc. invites you to join us for A View of Our City in Four Acts:  HMI’S 2009 Panel Discussion Series. This series brings together Milwaukee’s most tuned-in and interesting thinkers in an intimate setting. Listen and react to thoughtful discussions on Milwaukee’s built environment as influenced by history, law, design, art and politics. Creative genius behind the project is Attorney Bruce Block, who will be acting as Moderator for each discussion. Visit to learn more about Bruce.

We are also holding a Cocktail Hour prior to each discussion. Speak one-on-one with the evening’s panelists and fellow attendees interested in our built environment while enjoying cocktails and substantial hors d’ouevres. Reservations for the Cocktail Hour are an additional $20.00 per person and limited to 20 people per evening. We are lining-up a stellar group of speakers. You will not want to miss this.
