Community Planning Overview:

The Village of Wauwatosa is the historic town center of the City of Wauwatosa, a first-tier suburb of Milwaukee. The study area includes a major city park, a linear commercial and industrial district, residential neighborhoods, a railroad, and a portion of the Menomonee River Parkway. The primary goals of the plan were to unify these major community assets, identify and conceptualize development opportunities, and improve functional systems such as parking, wayfinding, and circulation. The Village Plan used a highly-collaborative process to develop the plan. Implementation is well underway resulting in significant transformation of the district with new housing, stores, streetscape, and improved safety.
