Milwaukee’s Harbor District has been at the center of our region’s prosperity for hundreds of years – first as a rice marsh with plentiful fish and game, then as an economic hub that served industries throughout the state. Now, much of its land sits abandoned or in disrepair, its waterways are polluted – but its potential is immense.
The Harbor District Initiative brings together local, state, and federal government efforts, private sector interests, and community enthusiasm to achieve a world-class revitalization of this area for the benefit of the City and the Region. Our goal is to reinforce existing businesses and neighborhoods and set a new standard for how waterfronts “work” environmentally, economically, and socially.
A new non-profit, Harbor District, Inc. (HDI), is leading the charge to reimagine – and then rebuild – this area. HDI, the City of Milwaukee and other partners are conducting a planning process to craft a vision for the area, begin to build momentum and marshal resources to implement the vision.
Speaker: Daniel Adams, Planning Director, The Harbor District, Inc.
