Sweet pic of the city MM. Do you think you can get some new pics of UCT. I haven't been over there in a while to see how it's coming along. Judging from that pic, are they EVER gonna light up the crown??? Hope so...

Here's another I thought you'd enjoy... no comments necessary.

About updated UCT pictures though... I haven't had a chance to get down there in the past couple of weeks but I assure you that nothing has really changed since my last update. They have, however, finished installing all the windows in the building. The crown is still under construction and no where near complete so lighting it up is - for now - out of the question.

Another sweet pic! But thanks for the UCT update MM. I wish they'd hurry up with the crown. Its gonna look awesome coming home from the south on the freeway once it's done! Just like icing on the cake.

Please forgive me for being too lazy to search the last thread, but:

What's with the construction on Swan Blvd just south of Hoyt Park?

Richfield aspires to village status

**An interesting article I thought I'd share.**

Town want to incorporate to control borders
By DON BEHM
[email protected]
Posted: Dec. 28, 2006

Richfield - Residents of the state's third most populous town say they should be allowed to shake off the image of townsfolk and become villagers.

Town Administrator Toby Cotter has handed the state Incorporation Review Board a check for $20,000 to pay for its consideration of the town's request to become a village.

The Washington County community is betting both that fee and an additional $30,000 in consultant and legal expenses that the state will agree that this entire 36-square-mile community with 11,385 residents is a lot more village than town today.

The Richfield request will be the review board's maiden voyage. It was established by the Legislature to advise the Department of Administration whether requests should be granted, dismissed or resubmitted with new boundaries.

The Administration Department rejected the last two incorporation petitions that went before it.

This month, the state told Ledgeview in Brown County that too much of the eastern half of the town was rural with little prospect of substantial development within three years, and that it lacked the compactness and homogeneity needed for a village.

In 2005, the Administration Department told Caledonia, in Racine County, that it was not homogeneous and, for that reason, recommended that it be split into a village on the east and a town on the west. Caledonia, then the state's most populous town, appealed to the Legislature. It was given authority in the 2005-'07 budget bill to hold an incorporation referendum, and Caledonia is now a village.

Brophy Shaming Sign Damaged at 2600 N. Booth St. Tuesday Night
Contributed by Chris Johns
Thursday, 28 December 2006
From JSOnline's Daywatch: Vandals damage shaming sign, Landlord owes city $108,311 in violations (by Tom Held, posted to Daywatch Dec. 27, 2006)

A sign intended to shame a longtime nemesis of Milwaukee building code enforcers was torn in half overnight by vandals who snatched away a section containing the phone number of the property owner and an admonition against damaging the sign.

I was browsing the city channel website when I found something interesing. If you go to the Community & Economic Development Committe archives and then Nov. 28 and scroll through the video about 18 min, there's an interesting presentation by the Public Policy Forum researcher who did the report criticizing the city's economic development plan (or lack thereof). It's a pretty enlightening presentation.

I was @ Mayfair the other night with my friend and bought a new digital camera. I took some shots from the new Best Buy parking lot across the street from the mall just to see how it works, and because I never saw this area of town so quiet as it was that night.




I know it doesn't have anything to do with skyscrapers but I love the new design of Best Buy


I bought the camera primarily to start making albums of cities I visit, and also maybe to post some on here. I maybe lack talent but that's up to you guys!

Happy New Year!

Nice photos as always Mark. I haven't been around the board for awhile but it looks like Madison and Milwaukee are trucking along as usual. It's good to see Milwaukee growing and you always provide us with interesting views of the city.

You should post those 3 simple and straight forward night time skyline shots from the breakwater wall I requested, they turned out very good.
