The Greater Milwaukee Committee’s Downtown Task Force, launched earlier this year, has contracted with urban planning consultant Toni Griffin as it evaluates the challenges and opportunities facing Milwaukee’s downtown.

Griffin, founder of Urban Planning & Design for the American City, has been working with Task Force to study Milwaukee’s downtown and help develop its action agenda goals.

Linda Gorens-Levey, partner at General Capital Group, Alex Molinaroli, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Johnson Controls Inc., and Greg Wesley, equity partner at Golzalez, Saggio & Harlan LLP, serve as co-chairs of the Task Force.  Their role has been to garner support from Milwaukee’s business and civic leaders to create a long-term vision for the city.

Griffin has been working with the task force for about eight weeks. She spoke at the GMC’s November member meeting Monday to give an update on their work in setting a strategic framework for downtown development.
