Building on the momentum generated by activity in neighboring Walker’s Point and the Menomonee Valley, the Department of City Development, Alderman Jose Perez and the Walker Square Neighborhood Association are working with residents, business owners and other neighborhood stakeholders to develop a neighborhood Action Plan for Walker Square. The Plan will focus on steps that the neighborhood can take in conjunction with the City to increase investment in housing, support the commercial corridors of National Avenue and Greenfield Avenue, improve bicycle and pedestrian connections and redevelop key sites on Cesar Chavez Drive.

The Walker Square neighborhood is bounded by 6th Street, National Avenue, Cesar Chavez Drive and Greenfield Avenue.

DCD and the Walker Square Neighborhood Association are co-hosting a public meeting at 6:00 p.m. on March 19th to kick off the planning effort and to gather resident input regarding the Plan. The meeting will be held at the newly renovated MATC–Walker Square campus (816 W. National Avenue).   More information about the event is included in the flyer below.
