MKE United Greater Downtown Action Agenda
August 9, 2016 | Categories: Community
Milwaukee is experiencing once-in-a-generation development in and around downtown that is creating tremendous new opportunities for our City. We have an opportunity to leverage these developments to:
Benefit the neighborhoods adjacent to downtown;
Create a coherent and discernible identity for “Greater Downtown;” and
Build safe and efficient connections between downtown and its adjacent neighborhoods.
To meet this need, Greater Milwaukee Committee in partnership with the City of Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Urban League and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation have convened a diverse team of community leaders from across the downtown and adjacent neighborhoods to launch MKE United Greater Downtown Action Agenda (MKE United), an effort to create a shared, inclusive vision for Greater Downtown Milwaukee, supported by a strategic Action Agenda that will make that vision a reality.
“Milwaukee is experiencing unprecedented downtown development,” said Milwaukee Mayor, Tom Barrett. “Working together, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to leverage those developments to create more equitable benefit for all Milwaukeeans and the neighborhoods adjacent to downtown.”
MKE United defines the Greater Downtown as the downtown area and its surrounding neighborhoods:
- Lindsay Heights / Fondy-North
- King Drive / Bronzeville
- Brewers Hill / Harambee
- Lower East Side
- Historic Third Ward

MKE United Survey Opportunity
Historic Brewers Hill Association is proud to be a participant in the MKE United initiative, which is working to make the Greater Downtown a strong economic engine that is welcoming to all, well connected to its surrounding neighborhoods, and positioned for future growth.
Our members have another opportunity to help shape the vision, priorities and strategies of the MKE United Action Agenda through the recently launched public survey. In order to obtain results that accurately reflect the diversity of our great city, WE NEED YOU to participate and to share the survey with your members, networks, colleagues, and friends.
We encourage you to use the link below to respond to the questions yourself, and then share it with others!
