New years bring new ideas. Hopefully.

So, what is your big, new idea for our wonderful city? I want to know it, and I'm asking you to share.  

My suggestion? Take some time out of your regular routine and find some inspiration.

What do you want in Milwaukee? What do you expect from our city? What can you do in 2009 to help move Milwaukee forward?

There are big ideas left, and Lord knows that Milwaukee could use some. But what are they?

Come on people, it's time to get off the sidelines and share your big ideas for Milwaukee.

This link at might help to get those creative juices flowing.

Use the talkback feature to share your ideas for Milwaukee. I'll share mine in the coming weeks.
