Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The PabstCity project appears to be dead, or at least taxpayer financing for it.

The city council voted 9-6 against the project which would've contributed a $41 million subsidy to the $317 million development. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will be licking his wounds after this since he was pretty aggressive in trying to win approval for the proposal.

I stated my opposition to this plan in a post a few weeks back. Don't get me wrong. It would be great to have a movie theater, House of Blues, and a GameWorks downtown. I just question the need for the taxpayers to kick in that kind of dough to make the project happen. Judging by the vote, that critcism was heard loud and clear in the offices of Milwaukee's aldermen.
