|the target area|
This newly created waterfront, the city hopes, will attract some higher rent clients and boost tax revenue across the board. This is a similar plan to that of Milwaukee’s Menomonee River where their restoration boosted property values by 1400% but also claimed an extra million dollars in tax revenue per year. In my mind, this is a win-win situation for everyone.
From the perspective of an angler, these lower reaches are perfect for crank bait and slip bobber fishing. This will open up a whole new destination within the city for anglers to target some fresher fish from the lake. If done right, it will provide fishing access to those who spin fish and don’t necessarily have the mobility to climb the rocks in Racine Harbor.
