Viewpoint Luncheon

Can the Private Sector Help Address Greater Milwaukee’s Infrastructure Woes?

December 10, 2018 | 11:45 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Potawatomi Hotel and Casino | Milwaukee, WI

Individual registration price: $40

The Wisconsin Policy Forum’s series of reports on local government infrastructure has pointed to vast repair and replacement needs that exceed the financial capacity of the region’s major governments to address them. What role might private sector financing play in addressing local governments’ capital needs? Would public-private partnerships work for big projects like a new criminal courthouse or the Domes, and what are the downsides? Can private philanthropy do more, or is the capacity of private donors already being drained?

Join the Wisconsin Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore the role the private sector might play in addressing local government infrastructure challenges.

We’ll begin by reviewing the findings of our recent infrastructure reports. Then, we’ll hear from a panel of subject matter experts.

Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive
