Plans & Studies

Comprehensive Planning

Milwaukee's Comprehensive Plan consists of a Citywide Policy Plan and Area Plans. The Comprehensive Plan is the cornerstone of all local land use decisions. The Plans provide a community-based framework for investment, a guide for public and private decision-making and coordinating initiatives for many different groups.

 

Area Plans

The City prepares plans and studies which guide development in individual neighborhoods; these documents include neighborhood redevelopment and action plans.

Redevelopment Plans (a sample of recent, not all plans)

A Redevelopment Plan is a guiding document, approved by the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee (RACM) and the Common Council, in accordance with the State of Wisconsin’s blighted area law. This document creates a boundary, goals and requirements for the specific geographic area. These goals and requirements may include numerous issues such as blight designation, property acquisition, land use planning and design requirements.

     

 

Design Guidelines

Design Guidelines are intended to provide urban design principles with details, standards, illustrations, and examples that promote high quality, context sensitive, sustainable, market-competitive, and traditional neighborhood designs. The information includes elements that are required by zoning, and other information that highlights best practices.  They seek to sustain, restore and enhance the livability, character, and stability of Milwaukee’s neighborhoods.
