UWM conference to tackle urban ecology
Experts to speak about outreach, livable cities
Posted: May 24, 2004
Two experts on urban ecology will highlight the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's seventh annual Urban Initiatives Conference, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Italian Community Center.
Rutherford Platt, founder of the Ecological Cities Project at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, will open the conference with a discussion of the project, a national program of research and outreach on urban green space, watershed and habitat issues.
Noted author and scholar Kent Portney, a political science professor at Tufts University in Medford, Mass., will share his views on livable cities and discuss how cities across the country are grappling with creating and sustaining healthy environments.
A session on the future of Milwaukee-area parks is expected to address the best ways to manage and fund the park system. Panelists will include John Vandlik of The Park People, Milwaukee County Parks Director Sue Black, County Supervisor Daniel Diliberti, and state Rep. Jon Richards (D-Milwaukee).
The conference will also offer panel discussions on urban waterfront development, sustainable brownfield redevelopment, lead poisoning prevention efforts, water quality, building and designing green communities, and community gardening.
For more information or to register, call Patricia Torres at the Center for Urban Initiatives and Research at (414) 229-5916. For a conference schedule or to register online, go to www.uwm.edu/Dept/CUIR/events.htm.
