New Kid's View

Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.

So, Your Think the Hoan's Future is Secure?

Hoan Bridge, Milwaukee County Supervisor Pat Jursik

Delivering 8,079 petition signatures and a letter signed by a bunch of elected officials to the governor seemed to have been effective. But after the forces behind tearing down the Hoan Memorial Bridge and replacing it with a retrograde, traffic-clogging lift-bridge seemed to have dropped that plan, Milwaukee County Supervisor Pat Jursik in her December newsletter reports this:

"City of Milwaukee Attempts to Delay Re-decking of the Hoan

In spite of the overwhelming show of support for the Hoan Bridge, we need to continue

to monitor this issue. On Friday, November 27, a letter from the City of Milwaukee

was shared with my office. The letter asks for delay of the re-decking in the guise of

an environmental impact study that will review alternatives to the Hoan and

development potential. This letter was written by the Department of Public Works of

the City of Milwaukee to Transportation Secretary Busalacchi. (Go to 

)to read more. We will see what comes of this letter."

So the work of the Coalition to Save the Hoan is apparently not done.
