GREATER DOWNTOWN ACTION AGENDA
NOW IS OUR TIME
Milwaukee is at a critical crossroads.
We are experiencing once-in-a-generation development in and around downtown that is creating tremendous new opportunities for our City. However, we also acknowledge that some of our residents do not feel connected to this growth or the downtown, fearing being left out or pushed out. We have an opportunity to leverage these developments to achieve a Greater Downtown that is:
Welcoming to all, including inclusive business, amenities and cultural offerings
A strong economic engine that attracts and retains inclusive and diverse businesses and jobs that grow household incomes for all Milwaukeeans
Well connected to its neighborhoods and to the region
Positioned to attract new investment with a coherent and discernible "Greater Downtown” identity that will provide the necessary revenues to support a high quality of life for all Milwaukeeans
To meet this need, the Greater Milwaukee Committee, City of Milwaukee, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and the Milwaukee Urban League have convened a diverse team of community leaders from across the downtown and adjacent neighborhoods to launch MKE United.
