Milwaukee's three rivers in today's news

Important current projects on each of Milwaukee's three rivers made today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Headline reads "Urban river rebirth effort under way."

The specific projects covered in the story are

A) the new Menomonee Valley Passage that will link the Hank Aaron State Trail and the new business park in the Valley with the Silver City neighborhood to the south.

B) the Milwaukee Common Council's scheduled vote on the long awaited overlay district that will protect the Milwaukee River corridor. (see photo below, a view of the Cambridge Woods segment, which is just north of Locust Street.)

C) The planned removal of parts of the concrete channel that is a major reason the Kinnickinnic River has been designated one of the ten most endangered rivers in the US. (pictured above.)

They are all great projects. Read the whole story by clicking here.
