DEPARTMENT OF CITY DEVELOPMENT OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR RICHARD W. E. PERRIN, F.A.I.A. 155 EAST KILBOURN AVENUE FRANK 1. POLIDORI Directo' MILWAUKEE 2, WISCONSIN Assistant Diredor BRoadway 1-2978 May 15, 1964 The Honorable Henry W. Maier Mayor, City of Milwaukee The Honorable Common Council City of Milwaukee The Department of City Development is pleased to transmit this report on Urban Renewal Techniques. In order to most effectively use renewal to improve Milwaukee there must be a clear understanding of what renewal is and what it can accomplish. As one of the Community Renewal Program studies, the renewal techniques were reviewed in order to ascertain ways of improving Milwaukee's renewal process. Based on this study, improve- ments are being recommended. With increasing experience in renewal the need for other modifica- tions of the process will become apparent. Milwaukee has considerable experience with clearance and redevelopment, but we have just recently embarked on a conservation program. Substantial expansion of the conservation staff is necessary to carry out this program. In order to effectively implement the projects recommended in the Community Renewal Program we will need to make adjustments in the renewal process as discussed in this report. Specific recommendations on renewal techniques and policies are incorporated into the report on Projects and Objectives. Very truly yours, RICHARD W. E. PERRIN, Director Department of City Development
