A friend from Milwaukee sends along this e-mail on the Great Lakes Urban Exchange (G.L.U.E.) meeting last night in Milwaukee.
More on G.L.U.E. here.
The G.L.U.E. meeting last night was interesting. It was held at MSOE due to flooding at Bucketworks. There was a scheduled program which was broadcast to other G.L.U.E. cities and archived for cities that meet at other times. Dave Reid discussed the efforts to convince UWM to expand in the downtown area as opposed to Wauwatosa where they are currently planning the expansion of their engineering graduate program.
G.L.U.E. discussions to date have generally been around issues that can be categorized as “new urbanism” . I think it’s an important discussion because it is easy for Milwaukee and its inherent problems to get lost in all the discussions about regional cooperation. (e.g. Maybe you read the article about SEWRPC in the Crossroads section of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Sunday).
While I don’t think G.L.U.E. is going to focus on issues directly related to education and workforce development, I think their issues (the vitality of the city, transportation, neighborhoods, affordable housing, entertainment, locally owned businesses, and keeping the urban area alive as the beating heart of the region) are all peripherally important to WIRED work and to maintaining and attracting a pool of talent vital to the local economy.
Here are some of the websites that were referenced in last night’s meeting. They are all interesting.
