Aerotropolis Development Plan

Aerotropolis Milwaukee

The Department of City Development is working with Aerotropolis Milwaukee, the Gateway to Milwaukee Business Improvement District, elected officials, and other local stakeholders to update the Southeast Side Area Plan to incorporate recommendations of the Aerotropolis Development Plan for the neighborhoods surrounding General Mitchell International Airport.  

This effort will help build on the Aerotropolis Milwaukee goals of fostering economic collaboration by linking the region's air, rail, road, and shipping transportation capabilities. The partnership focuses on the evolution and implementation of a comprehensive strategy to generate the growth of business and communities in an aesthetically inviting aerotropolis area.  Please visit the Aerotropolis Milwaukee website for additional information about these efforts.
