This lecture will be held at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at UW-Milwaukee, 2131 E. Hartford Ave, Room 345.

In November 2017, the Common Council adopted a resolution directing the City of Milwaukee Department of City Development (DCD) to prepare an Anti-Displacement Plan for neighborhoods surrounding Downtown Milwaukee, in light of the high amounts of new development. Along with traditional development goals, the plan works to prioritize choice and equity, so that existing businesses and residents can choose to remain and historically disadvantaged groups can enjoy and access the new wealth-creating opportunities. The Long Range Planning Manager for DCD, Sam Leichtling discussed the planning process, priorities, and next steps.
