Milwaukee Scores High On Cities' Walkability Ranking Nationally

Milwaukee is a great city for people on foot, according to a new national ranking.

Pedestrians are also residents, shoppers and tourists - - folks spending money and choosing to live, work and play where walkability meets their needs, and those of the businesses and institutions where pedestrians are headed.

Do you think that planners at the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, the State Department of Transportation, as well as local officials here - - I'm talking to you, Scott Walker - - will put two and two together and realize that serving the transportation needs of people who are not behind the wheel of a car is good for the economy?
