Join Us For The Third Community Workshop For The Moving Milwaukee Forward StudyHillside Terrace, Resource Center 1452 North 7th Street Milwaukee, WI 53207 January 31, 2018 6:00-8:00 pm
There will be a brief presentation at the beginning of the meeting, followed by an opportunity to talk with the study team and other residents in small groups about preliminary design ideas.
The proposed, future King Drive/ Bronzeville extension of the Milwaukee Streetcar has the potential to connect people to jobs, attract new businesses, bring new housing options, and improve public open spaces. The City of Milwaukee and the Historic King Drive Business Improvement District are planning for how to ensure residents and business benefit from the potential changes that improved transit could bring to the neighborhood. The only way to make this study successful is to hear from residents. Please attend and bring a neighbor!
Please attend and tell us:
Where transit oriented development should occur and what it should look like
What housing options residents need in their neighborhood
How to make the neighborhood better for walking
This meeting is the third of several community workshops planned. Additional details about the event and the project are on the attached flyer.
A light dinner will be served. We appreciate your time in helping shape the future of your neighborhood.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for this event should contact the City of Milwaukee ADA Coordinator at (414) 286-3475 or ADACoordinator@milwaukee.gov as least 72 hours beforehand.

The Beerline Trail Neighborhood Development Project is a creative placemaking collaboration convened by the City of Milwaukee, Greater Milwaukee Committee (GMC), MKE<->LAX and Riverworks Development Corporation and Riverworks Business Improvement District (Riverworks). Additional collaborators include the Greater Milwaukee Foundation (GMF), Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC), and our Guiding Lenses Group, including a range of cultural leaders from the neighborhoods and the city. This project builds from the history of the Beerline Trail initiated in 2002 and Creational Trails: The artery initiated in 2012. Our intention is to sustain and enrich the lives of people in these neighborhoods by promoting health, well-being and prosperity through increased circulation of resources, voices, ideas, labor and creativity.
