With the help of many dedicated citizens and professionals, the Department of City Development has put together this handbook of creative reuse strategies for city-owned vacant land in Milwaukee. This handbook provides a number of practical ideas to residents and community groups interested in turning city-owned vacant lots into community assets that add value to neighborhoods, strengthen bonds between neighbors and make the city a better place to live.
