If you don't have a plan, you won't get there.  Well, you'll get somewhere but it may not be where you need to go.  It's the same for our city.  Cities need people, passion, projects and plans to grow.  As I've always said, a city is only as good as the stories it tells.  So, what's your story for Milwaukee's future.  

As we've learned along the way, no one gives you the right to stand on the sidelines so Newaukee, Fuel Milwaukee, the Cultural and Entertainment Task Force, and a cast of other forward thinking organizations want your ideas, vision and outlook for Milwaukee in the year 2030.

Yes, MKE2030.  #MKE2030.  Sixteen years from today.  

We mainly want your entertainment and cultural ideas, but everything works together but focus your ideas on Downtown, transit, development, the arts, sports, the Milwaukee mentality and more.  Go big. 

You own the future, now share your ideas with everyone.  The Cultural and Entertainment Capital Needs Task Force will digest and translate your ideas into a working document that will help serve as an outline for a bigger, brighter Milwaukee future.

Get to twitter, facebook or your other favorite platform and share with the hash tag #MKE2030.  

Go.  Now.  #MKE2030.
