  1. i have since spoken with the Menomonee Valley Partners and learned the area they wanted to restrict residential development is east of the Cesar Chavez corridor. I favor residential west of this area near the Urban Ecology Center just south of the valley. I am on board with the job-creation focus of the industrial zoning farther east. Great work by all involved in their exciting valley plan. Can’t wait to further connect the Silver City business district to the great happenings in the valley.

    After speaking with the Menomonee Valley Partners, it was clarified that the portion where they wanted to restrict residential development is east of Cesar Chavez, which I am on board with. While I favor some residential development west of this area along Pierce St just south of the valley, I agree that job creation and industrial zoning are preferable for the eastern portion of the southern valley. Great work by all involved for their visionary plan to finish what was started over a decade ago, renewing the once-desolate valley.

    Opportunity for job creation and potentially successful business ventures seem promising in the areas along the river, from Pota to the Harley museum and beyond. Seems like a great way to attract casino visitors as well as the increasing number of bicyclists/hikers using the newly retooled paths under the 6th st. bridge.

    If I were an ambitious venture capitalist, I’d finance a vegan lunch/snack stop spot , complete with outdoor tables and a few bike racks, build your own flavored water bar (think fresh cucumbers and strawberries), snow cone stand and trail mix vending machine.
