MILWAUKEE RIVERKEEPER: Milwaukee River Protecting Milwaukee's Central Park

Purpose

Protect the threatened reached of the Milwaukee River using civic engagement and planning tools. The focus of this grant is portions of Milwaukee River within the City of Milwaukee, north of the former North Ave. Dam, as well as buffers on either side of the river. The project deliverables are 1) Summary of results from charettes and public input sessions on river shoreline planning 2) Draft overlay district language and maps; ideally this language will be passed by the end of the grant period. 3) Reports of involvement and input on development proposals. 4) Final report Department staff are improving the quality of grant reports by making sure applicants know very clearly ahead of time that ranking points ARE deliverables. We interpret the ranking questions very literally. In rare cases, an equivalent effort is considered; it should be clarified by the justification/explanation given with the ranking point and equivalent effort must be approved by Department staff. When the grant is complete, the Department will look for every single deliverable, even minor ones, and if they are not adequately addressed, only partial reimbursement (at the department's discretion) will be made to the applicant. A full description of the project scope and deliverables is available in the grant application, which is part of this agreement. The DNR will be provided with two paper copies and an electronic copy of the final report. Information will be disseminated to the public as described in the grant application.
