Layton Boulevard West Neighbors (LBWN) is seeking volunteers to maintain and beautify the Valley Passage at 37th and Pierce Street, starting in May.
Valley Passage, formerly an unused tunnel beneath the railroad tracks, now is a paved path leading to the Hank Aaron State Trail. It provides access to Milwaukee’s tourist destinations, including Miller Park, State Fair Park and Harley Davidson Museum, and allows residents walk to their jobs in Menomonee Valley.
Valley Passage was opened to the public on Nov. 8, after six months of construction.
“People can ride bikes, walk their dogs and go to the park there,” said Jeremy Belot, projects coordinator for LBWN. “That’s why we want to keep this area beautiful and welcome anyone who travels to the neighborhood.”
The cleanups are sponsored by LBWN and Menomonee Valley Partners (MVP). Belot and Tim Brown, MVP outreach and stewardship coordinator, are recruiting monthly volunteers from businesses, neighborhoods and schools in and near Silver City. They plan to train volunteers in late April.
