Learn More: Our Plan for a Promising Future


2035 starts now.

For almost a year now, we’ve partnered with you and Graef Consulting in building our 2035 comprehensive and downtown plan update — the vital roadmap that will guide our economic development and redevelopment work for years to come.

I can’t wait to get started. But first things first: We want to know what you think.

From the feedback sessions at the farmers’ market and downtown trick-or-treating to the robust discussions by our city committees to your input at open meetings, residents’ voices have been an important part of this work since the beginning.

And you will have several opportunities to weigh in on the draft plan in coming weeks.

  • First, you will see informational boards and other details at each of the polling places tomorrow.
  • You can also review the plan online here, or in person at City Hall. Here is a link to the city’s Comprehensive Plan web page.
  • Then, on April 21, we are holding an open house from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and a formal public hearing at 7 at City Hall. The South Milwaukee Common Council is expected to vote on the plan at its May 3 meeting.

Meanwhile, we will continue efforts to begin implementation immediately. We’ve been working on that for months, and we’ll share some exciting news soon.

A plan is only as good as the will to work it, and we will work this plan. Bring it on!

    Read thru the plan. Did not see the words “Historical Preservation credits” or “Wisconsin Economic Development Association” WEDA credits mentioned. Did I miss , if so, where they are in the plan? Note, tomorrow is voting day.
