Call Me An "Urbanist," Call Me "Milwaukee-Centric" - - It's All Good

In the media and blogging back-and-forth over the worth of the regional planning commission (SEWRPC) to Milwaukee, I've been taken to task by critics and labeled "Milwaukee-centric" (The Freeman) and "urbanist" (Patrick McIlheran)

I take these as compliments.

It's good to be an urbanist: strong cities are hugely beneficial to the economy and the environment.

And "Milwaukee-centric?"

You bet.

If only a little of that would rub off on the critics, and at SEWRPC.

Yea really.. Some people act like it is a bad thing to believe the core of the region should be strengthened and paid attention to....
