DescriptionAfter merging two local blogs to launch a news site several years ago web developers Jeramey Jannene and Dave Reid have a strong presence in downtown Milwaukee serving up local urban news on their combined effort Urban Milwaukee. Jannene and Reid do not shy away from writing with a very defined perspective. “We’re not simply reporting; there’s a level of advocacy there” says Reid. At the core of it all says Jannene is the intersection of design and activity in an urban environment. Issues that fall under the site’s purview include historic preservation architecture and neighborhood density. One of the biggest areas of coverage for the site is transportation such as the complete streets movement which encourages safe shared roadways for drivers cyclists pedestrians transit riders and wheelchair users alike.
