John Norquist

President and CEO of Congress for New Urbanism (Chicago, IL).

Under Mr. Norquist’s leadership as Mayor of Milwaukee from 1988-2004, the city experienced a revision of the city’s zoning code and reoriented development around walkable streets and public amenities such as the 3.1-mile Riverwalk.  Mr. Norquist is the author of The Wealth of Cities (Addison-Wesley, 1998) and has taught courses in urban planning and development at the University of Chicago, Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning.  Before he was elected Mayor, he represented Milwaukee in the Wisconsin Legislature where fellow legislators elected him to Democratic leadership positions in both the state assembly and senate.
