To make the Greater Downtown a strong economic engine that is welcoming to all, well connected to its surrounding neighborhoods and positioned for future growth, we need YOU to help shape the vision, priorities and strategies of our Action Agenda.
MKE United has launched a public survey designed to inform the creation of a Greater Downtown Action Agenda. The survey is designed to provide a way for all Milwaukee residents to share their priorities, ideas, and perceptions regarding key issues affecting the “Greater Downtown.”
“The Action Agenda is meant to be the voice of Milwaukee,” said Alex Molinaroli, CEO of Johnson Controls. “We want the MKE United vision and strategies to be an accurate reflection of the goals of all who live, work and play in Greater Downtown Milwaukee – this survey will help us get there.”
A critical component of the MKE United effort is its focus on civic engagement. The launch of the online survey complements earlier outreach efforts, including four workshops and numerous community events. Your input will help the MKE United planning team to check and adjust initial priorities and issues identified through these civic engagement activities to ensure all Milwaukeeans have an opportunity to make their voices heard.
Results from our workshops:
This summer, the MKE United project team held workshops designed to help shape the vision, priorities and strategies of the MKE United Greater Downtown Action Agenda. We brought together more than 100 community members for a total of four workshops to share initial findings regarding the challenges and opportunities facing the Greater Downtown and to secure insight and feedback from a broad cross-section of the community.
