Menomonee Valley 2.0 Plan Update:  Valley Riverwalk Overlay Approved. 

At its July 11th, 2017 meeting, the Common Council approved the Menomonee Valley Riverwalk Overlay which will use this new zoning designation to "bookmark" the rivers edge along the Menomonee River for a future Valley Riverwalk as redevelopment occurs.  This overlay will mark the first expansion of the Milwaukee Riverwalk beyond its original course.

As part of the Valley Riverwalk, Design Standards have been created to guide development along the future Riverwalk system.  CLICK here to learn more.
