Pathway projects have enabled many cities to revitalize neglected neighborhoods by connecting these under-developed areas to the city's downtown core with beautiful and convenient circulation solutions. This article discusses the effort that was involved in realizing a riverbank pathway project in Milwaukee (WI, USA), a project known as the Historic Third Ward District Riverwalk, a pathway that connects a formerly abandoned industrial district to the city's downtown, an effort that has spurred significant redevelopment and revitalization along the Pathway's corridor. In doing so, it describes the challenges that the project's sponsors and their designers had to confront and overcome during the eight years in realizing their Pathway plan, challenges that included numerous and lengthy negotiations with those individuals and companies who own the land on which the Pathway now lies, negotiations which focused on the sponsor's convincing the landowners to grant the Third Ward the permission they needed to realize their project. It explains how these negotiations affected the project's schedule and how the sponsor's resolved the funding problems involved in completing this project.
