Sara Daleiden of MKE<->LAX served as a key advisor along with other Beerline Trail Neighborhood Development Project leaders on this recently released Urban Institute report.

This report presents a case study of the Beerline Trail extension in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and how stakeholders used creative placemaking techniques to turn an unused rail corridor into an active, safe, and inclusive space for local residents. Using stakeholder interviews, reviews of planning documents and community survey data, and site visit observations, this case study illustrates how practitioners can use creative placemaking techniques to bridge the gap between disparate communities and improve public safety and quality of life.
