BACKGROUND

Did you know that it’s difficult for many Milwaukeean’s to be physically active in their neighborhoods because our streets lack the sidewalks, bike lanes, and crosswalks needed for safe travel?
To make streets that are safer and easier for people of all ages and abilities, the City of Milwaukee is pursuing a Complete Streets policy and neighbors and community groups are organizing to help make it strong and equitable. Black Girls Do Bike, Layton Boulevard West Neighbors, Northwest Side Community Development Corporation,  Path to Platinum, Silver Spring Neighborhood Center, and 16th St Community Health Center are joining the Bike Fed and other groups to get community input and support for the Complete Streets Policy.

Join the Milwaukee Complete Streets Action Team to help speak-up for these important improvements in our neighborhoods! Once you sign up, we will inform you how to get involved as the campaign builds. Invite your friends to join.

Together we can help pass a Complete Streets policy that makes our neighborhoods better for walking and biking for people of all ages and abilities.
