VILLARD AVENUE BID 19 EXPANDS TO SUPPORT ADDITIONAL NEIGHBORHOOD BUSINESSES
After listening to the concerns of businesses that are in the neighborhood that reside outside of the current BID boundaries, the Villard BID board of Directors petitioned the city of Milwaukee for an expansion that would include their businesses in our revitalization efforts. We feel like the future of the north side of Milwaukee depends on stakeholder’s willingness to invest in their own community. We also feel like businesses should be able to direct their own resources to meet their needs.
We are excited to continue the momentum that we have enjoyed on the Villard Ave. retail corridor and create that same energy in the expanded territory. This is an opportunity to raise the exposure and bring enhanced services to an area of Milwaukee that has been historically underserved. The newly-expanded BID will focus on bringing its successful community-improvement initiatives to the entire neighborhood– including efforts such as working with the City Department of Development and Department of Public Works to improve infrastructure and pedestrian safety.
