What's your vision for Milwaukee
years into the future?
Extracted survey data
What is your vision for the Milwaukee area?
I look to Menomonee Valley's vision for thoughts on what's possible in Milwaukee. Envision the Menomonee Valley that plays a central role in Milwaukee: economically, with strong companies and jobs near workers' homes; ecologically, with healthy waterways and greenspace; geographically, with renewed ties to its surrounding neighborhoods; and culturally, with firm roots in its past and a role in histories to come.
an integrative city with model delivery systems that integrate the mainstream institutions into effective service conduits for both community and institutional building that enhances the quality of life for all residents in the city.
To make Milwaukee a vibrant city that invests in available workforce and provides family sustaining employment opportunities for all who are able to work.
A city of safe vibrant neighborhoods.
The City of Milwaukee becomes recognized as the best place to live, work, locate a business, and raise a family in the State of Wisconsin.
A better and more equitable life for all of us...
I want a vibrant early stage ecosystem where entrepreneurs are supported in both wisdom and capital, and for this to be the focus on how to create jobs and revitalize communities.
Fulfill its potential to be a world-class city by maximizing our existing underutilized assets and resources that could be put to better use in creating, attracting and retaining talent.
A united group consisting of City & State, along with nonprofits and businesses first working to solve the issues of crime & grime, so that more complex issues like housing, workforce/education, and job creation truly have a chance of success. Imagine all Milwaukee children growing up in a safe environment, experiencing life-long learning, leading to a family-supporting job or starting their own business.
To continue creating an environment of economic revitalization for both the North and South sides in the City of Milwaukee.
Milwaukee's Central City becomes a preferred place to work and live.
I am focused on the northside so I would like the northside to be accepted racially and economically as a value added milwaukee neighborhood not a liability on resources
Ideally, I believe that the Milwaukee business community is much more powerful together than it is apart. I believe leveraging the talents that exist within to drive toward supporting our citizens in developing avenues toward betterment benefit us all.
More exposure to opportunity. More exposure to capital sources.
To see it work to the highest good of all. To see its citizens work together toward integration of spirit to elevate positive energy necessary to create paths to a improved/better city/quality of life.
a vibrant community to work, live and play
Continued evolution of vibrant downtown cultural, residential and business districts surrounded by industrial corridors providing a high-wage foundation for supporting nearby neighborhood residents and mainstreet retail businesses. Higher social, moral and educational standards to build upwardly mobile classes of youth to restore Milwaukee neighborhoods to being safe, fun and valuable places to live.
A unified city where organizations share information for the betterment of its citizens.
Large scale redevelopment of areas that have deteriorated to a level that no longer affords an option to restore or rehabilitate; connectivity of green spaces, which includes the City of Milwaukee reclaiming a role as provider and maintainer of public open space (this does not exist; few large cities are without a "parks department, but Milwaukee is one of them)
Transform municipality into cultural of inclusion and systemic fair practice.
A city that is educating our children, providing living wage jobs for residents and a business climate that is provide opportunities for minorities to grow and prosper.
To develop a community that is inclusive, adaptive, prideful and full of the necessary entrepreneurial spirit.
I would like to see Milwaukee be able to compete on the world's stage
My vision is a vibrant, safe community that my children can find quality schools with quality teachers. My vision is for those who choose work right out of high school to find opportunity for advancement in companies that provide those livable wages. My vision includes streets that my sons, daughters and grandchildren can play safely.
See the community recharged and infused with signs of prosperity and hope. Education/skills training and Industry growth and investment in the community. Provision of assistance to help Milwaukeeans to identify and overcome obstacles that impede personal and economic growth.
The opposite of what exist as far as how resources are utilized. Citizens are not limited by perceptions, etc. and are able to venture into other neighborhoods
a. Blight removed from neighborhoods and commercial strips b. Milwaukee is in top 10 in all positive categories for cities (reduction in crime, lowest teen pregnancy, highest per capita income, lowest poverty rates, highest high school graduation rates; lowest rates of minority unemployment)
To have very strong neighborhoods that attract and retain homeowners and entrepreneurs. To have Milwaukee on the top 10 list of best cities to live in.
To build an urban economy that has global connections. Restore and strategically plan a cultural pride.
In short, my vision for Milwaukee is one where all residents have robust access to economic opportunities that ultimately improve local quality of life and position the city as an internationally recognized model for urban renewal and development.
I see Milwaukee as a wealth and critical thinking generator. A vibrant first cousin to Chicago, with low unemployment for African Americans.
Vibrant economically diverse communities for people to live, work, serve and pursue health and happiness.
A re-invention, a cohesive strategy for family sustaining jobs, safe streets; quality education

Sustainable development
Milwaukee is a vibrant city. It is not, however, as vibrant as it could be. Milwaukee, to be a truly vibrant destination city needs to embrace the rich cultural and ethnic diversity that is embedded in our history. Instead, that culture and diversity are used to divide people and communities. Continuously, it fosters hate and fear and negative perceptions that manifest themselves in the recruitment and hiring practices of companies throughout the region. It manifests itself in an antiquated transportation discussion and policies that rely heavily on roads and cars as Milwaukee struggles to enter the 21st century with a robust public transit system that includes multiple options (bus, rail, et.al) that can actually get residents to where the jobs are. I see a Milwaukee where it's residents have EQUAL opportunity and access to quality education that prepares them to enter the next level - vocational training, technical college, four year college or university. I see a Milwaukee where people are hired based on skill sets rather than zip codes. Milwaukee is more than manufacturing. We need to acknowledge each sector with career pathways and place as much effort into those as we do to manufacturing. I see a Milwaukee where the manufacturing employer community remembers that their aging "boomer" workforce was trained "on the job" with nothing more than good hands and a strong back. As technology changed their incumbent workforce was trained "on the job" to keep pace with changing technology. Business cannot expect to dis-invest in workforce development and internal training and expect a new workforce to walk in from the streets prepared to take the place of an employee that they trained. I see a Milwaukee where "Milwaukee" is not a negative word.
Businesses located in city, providing living wage for residents; enhanced transportation system connecting people to jobs and housing
Create a resident-business partnership that will grow an expanding business base, a skilled labor force, and thriving families and neighborhoods.
Taking the underemployed people and turning them and their communities into the state's most valued resource

In the year 2023, Milwaukee is a national model of economic and social development, where families, employers, and government take collaborative ownership of the city. Everyone shares a common, frequent, and publicly updated display of measures of success, resulting in a culture of civic pride and participation. Economic growth has driven unemployment to historic lows, while innovations in health, transportation, and education have made the race challenges of the 20th century a distant memory.
Through a sustained effort by citizens, large and small organizations, and government, Milwaukee is celebrated for economic success. Driving educational success into urban areas and providing access to healthy food led to increasing employment, and housing ownership above national standards. Strong leadership transformed once-challenging racial equity into a national model for diversity and inclusion. Milwaukee now ranks amongst the world’s healthiest cities.
A new era of collaboration between community leaders, public and private sector have made Milwaukee a national and global role-model for city development. Creating a favorable environment for employers and first-class education, health and housing have transformed the city’s economy into a powerhouse that has doubled the population while increasing the pride of citizens.
Common Agenda
1. The urban city is a primary target for home-ownership with greater than X% homeowners.
2. City-wide educational improvements bring graduation and retention above national average.
3. Strong leadership from public and private sectors makes health and wellness a priority.
4. Racial equity is in evidence in all aspects of civic participation.
5. Jobs are created near where the unemployed live.
6. Dashboards and indicators of success are in the hands of all citizens.
7. Other collective impact efforts are integrated and linked with Transform Milwaukee.
8. Healthy food is available in all areas of the city. Strong government leadership makes unhealthy food less economically attractive.
9. Higher education trains skills towards those needed by employers.
