Panel Event: Public Rights in Milwaukee’s Fresh Coast

Often overlooked, much of the city's coastline and riverfronts are not original — they’re built on lakebed or riverbed that has been filled to create new land. This webinar features six speakers who bring a diversity of perspectives to the “public trust doctrine” that governs use of filled lakebed and riverfronts. What is public enough to satisfy the public trust doctrine? Can the state and other developers exclude the public? What are the permissible uses on the newly created land? Join us to learn more about the origins of the coastline, policy and funding issues around what to do with dredged sediment, and public rights in this iconic Lake Michigan waterfront.
1.5 CLE credits available (pending approval.)
Using the League’s New Zoning Guide for Affordable Housing
CNU is providing training for municipal elected officials, staff, and private planning consultants interested in using the Wisconsin-specific Zoning Guide. The training is free but attendance is limited and REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
The overall goal of the Guide and the training is to show that bite-sized zoning code changes are possible and can have an immediate impact on removing obstacles to the development of workforce and missing middle housing.
(The Guide will be available for download in mid-February, prior to the workshops. Background is available on the League's website here.)
The training will cover how to use the documents in the Guide, navigating the steps to amending a code, and determining where to start. Both the morning and afternoon sessions will focus on the methodology of incremental code reform and the process and implementation described within the Guide.
The morning session will be geared for elected municipal officials, city and village administrators/managers, builders, and advocates. The afternoon session will be geared for municipal planning staff and private planning consultants.
You may attend both the morning and afternoon sessions.
