Have there been any developments in Milwaukee in the last decade or two that have turned out to be positive for kids?
When that question arose in a conversation with a friend, I decided it was time to focus on things in our midst that provide a firm case for answering yes.
There are good things happening in the city, including in some of its most strained neighborhoods. And there are more than you (and, often times, I) might think, given how easy it is to get immersed in worrisome stuff.
I don’t know what I’m starting here, but I expect it will be at least a couple of columns because I want to put a few worthy efforts in the spotlight.
I’ll start with the first specific answer that came to my mind: The Urban Ecology Center.
