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.
