Project Highlights

  • Citywide Policy Plan
  • Public outreach

ECT worked with the City of Milwaukee to provide professional planning and design services for the comprehensive land use plan for the Near North Side Area as part of the Citywide Policy Plan. The ECT team and area stakeholders evaluated neighborhood assets and opportunities in order to guide new development that builds upon its strengths, history, and resources, and integrates sustainable planning and design strategies into the neighborhood fabric. ECT sought extensive public involvement through interviews, a preference survey, and public meetings; this process was integral to creating a plan that guides private and public investment decisions. The Milwaukee City Council approved the plan in December 2009.
