Public Information Manager/City of Milwaukee
Milwaukee Common Council members JIM BOHL and MICHAEL J. MURPHY invite interested residents and business leaders to attend a community meeting on MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 16, to discuss an ongoing commercial corridor snapshot planning study regarding the future of the Burleigh Street and Lisbon Avenue business corridors, between N. 68th and N. 93rd Streets.
Alderman Bohl and Alderman Murphy launched the study to guide the short- and long-term improvement of the business strips. The goal is to bring together area residents, businesses and real estate brokers, along with city departments, to spearhead a business corridor plan that will
assist brokers in attracting businesses the area wants.
“I hope that residents and business leaders with an interest in these corridors can make plans to attend this meeting and help us maximize neighborhood input into business planning for the area,” Alderman Bohl said. “With the knowledge we gain from this process, we can help the Burleigh and Lisbon commercial districts thrive.”
Alderman Murphy said Monday’s meeting will include discussion of the results gathered by a recent Department of City Development survey, as well as the potential to use streetscaping improvements to make the area more customer- and pedestrian-friendly.
