The Gateway Signage Project was conceived by the HBHA as a way to elevate the profile of this important Milwaukee neighborhood, which serves as a gateway to downtown. The signs are based on a new Brewers Hill logo, designed by UWM students. With the work of local designers, the signs are to be comprised of wood, metal, Cream City brick, and other weather-resistant materials. The project will feature specific monument signage to highlight critical intersections of Brewers Hill on North Avenue, Pleasant Street, Holton Street, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. It will also include street light signs at entry points to and intersections within the neighborhood.

HBHA Vice President William Jenkins stated, “The Gateway Signs will not only help raise the profile of our historic neighborhood with demarcation, but hopefully will attract new development and homeowners in and around Brewers Hill – an important corridor to downtown Milwaukee.”

HBHA Board Member Teresa Mambu Rasch agreed and added, “We know that many have heard of Brewers Hill, and pass us on their daily commute, but many don’t know that we are an attractive neighborhood to live in and raise families close to downtown. The Gateway signs will invite all who pass by to take a second look at our beautiful neighborhood.”

The Historic Brewers Hill Association is a neighborhood association for individuals and households who are dedicated to a diverse, urban living in an historic neighborhood near downtown Milwaukee. The HBHA was founded in 1981 as a voluntary neighborhood group and is comprised of property owners and renters alike, governed by an elected Board of Directors, and known for its active membership. The HBHA is 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. All donations to the Gateway Signage Project are tax-deductible.
