Community Impact Session 2

The City Planning staff are using multiple methods to engage with residents and other stakeholders in the southside planning area, one being a series of three Community Impact Sessions.

Community Impact Session 2 will address visioning and guiding principles. The conversations will be directed towards relevant issues and future changes for businesses, community spaces, housing, land use, parks & open space, transportation, and redevelopment of key areas of South Park Street, Fish Hatchery Road, and the The Village on Park.

The Community Impact Session will result in the development of the South Madison Neighborhood Plan. This is a 10-15 year look into how we shape the future – we’ll work on issues that are relevant to the community, determine how best to achieve them, and figure out how to move forward. The plan will undertake a multitude of topics such as The Village on Park, businesses, redevelopment, housing, and land use.

Please mark your calendars and take part in the planning process to help shape the future of the southside.

Childcare and interpreters (Spanish and Hmong) will be at each event.

Sparking Community Investment: Women Developers Revitalizing Neighborhoods and Creating Wealth

Racism and access to capital have long been barriers to development in Milwaukee’s central city. Join us for a conversation with four dynamic real estate developers whose innovative projects are bucking that trend and creating wealth and opportunity in under-served neighborhoods. Learn how they challenged the myth that philanthropy and profit can’t go hand in hand, and made community good a priority AND profitable. We’ll also begin to explore what lessons can be learned to advance a more equitable economic development landscape here in the in the Madison region.
Sharon Adams, HN Development, stimulated more than $25M in commercial developments in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood and is currently re-developing Adams Garden Park, an environmental hub including commercial space for organizations promoting green jobs in Milwaukee.

Melissa Goins, Maures Development Group, has developed nine buildings that total 400 apartments and 20,000 square feet of commercial space, including the reborn America’s Black Holocaust Museum, a legacy of Dr. James Cameron.

Juli Kaufmann, FIX Development, started her career with the Clock Tower Building and most recently re-developed the historic Wally Schmidt Tavern, 18th & Fond du Lac, which is home to FCI’s Milwaukee office along with The Tandem restaurant.

JoAnne Johnson-Sabir, Juice Kitchen, is the co-owner of the Juice Kitchen and together with Juli Kaufmann, co-developed Sherman Phoenix, a vibrant and diverse business center that literally rose from the ashes of Milwaukee’s 2016 riots and fires.

Cost is only $10.00, and includes lunch catered by Dobahn Restaurant.
