Public encouraged to give input on Southwest Side Area Plan
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and the Department of City Development announced a workshop for the public to plan for future development in Southwest Side neighborhoods. The workshop is part of the Southwest Side Area Plan, one of 13 comprehensive area plans underway to cover all 99 square miles of the City of Milwaukee.
“Area planning in Milwaukee affects everyone living in and near the neighborhoods involved,” said Mayor Barrett. “To have a city plan where everyone benefits, we need to hear the public’s views.”
The Southwest Side Design Workshop will be held Aug. 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. at St. Luke’s Hospital Health Science Building in rooms C and D on the Lower Level, 2901 W. Kinnickinnic River Parkway.
The Southwest Side Area Plan is bounded by the city limits and the Lincoln Pacific Railroad Line on the north, West Howard Avenue and the city limits on the south, the city limits on the west, and South 6th Street on the east. The area includes such landmarks as Serb Hall, Leon’s Custard, Jackson Park and Alverno College.
