Promote the fiscal well-being and the quality of urban life.
Support of the following positions and measures:
The state government should develop a policy to improve urban fiscal and growth management.
State aids should be targeted to both declining and distressed Wisconsin communities. In grant allocations further consideration should be given by state agencies to distressed rural communities, as well as distressed cities.
Wisconsin's urban policy role should emphasize measures that enhance the local economic base. The use of aid for particular programs is considered essential to the encouragement of local development programs. Supportive services through technical assistance from state agencies should be available.
Appropriate programs in housing, education, and job training should be available to complement measures intended to enhance the economic base. The overall goal is to create or preserve productive, self-reliant neighborhoods and communities.
