Howard will leave NWSCDC with a strong balance sheet, a record of success in business development, and years of accomplishments in community organizing. This excerpt from the article describes his future plans:

After stepping down from that leadership role, Snyder said he would like to remain involved in some initiatives, such as conceptual planning to leverage Milwaukee’s north-south rail corridors to spur new transportation connections and development.
“We are just in the re-imagining phase,” he said. “I’d like to be a part of that.”
