Even during this economic downturn the City of Milwaukee continues its efforts to cleanup environmentally contaminated sites within the city and prepare them for redevelopment.

Superficially, this file would give blight designation to six city owned lots, in the Riverworks area, which will allow the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee to obtain EPA funds to conduct remediation efforts.  Once completed it would be the goal to put these lots out for possible redevelopment.  This file was approved and will now go before the full Common Council.

File number 081419 proposed that the often delayed and long awaited missing link in the Beerline section of Riverwalk to be funded through the Department of Public Works and reimbursed by the property owner.  The construction of this link, that abuts the Brewers Point Apartments, would be carried out by Titan Builders for $250,000 and should begin construction this spring with the intent of being completed within the year.  This file was approved and will now go before the full Common Council.
