Unite Milwaukee is an annual anti-violence summit that is co-hosted by Senator Nikiya Harris Dodd and the 30th Street Industrial Corridor in the spring. This annual summit provides the community with the resources and tools they need to prevent violence in their neighborhood. The 2015 summit, which was held on March 14, 2015, produced “Blueprint for a Safe Milwaukee,” a comprehensive step-by-step guide to help neighbors combat violence in their neighborhoods. The 2016 Unite Milwaukee Summit will be held on April 9, 2016 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at a location which will be announced soon. This year’s summit will focus on creating an intergenerational conversation between youth and adults on how to prevent violence in their neighborhoods. If you wish to sponsor the summit, please send your tax-deductible contribution to The Corridor, 3536 W. Fond du Lac, Milwaukee, WI 53216.

The Garden Homes neighborhood is special for many reasons. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places; it’s the first municipally co-operative housing. It has many engaged residents and organizations working to make it a better place. Now several nonprofits are working together on issues of housing, stormwater, and the park. The Corridor has teamed up with Freshwater Future and others, to have a series of community meetings to improve the Garden Homes Park and surrounding neighborhood thanks to a grant from the Argosy Foundation. At the initial meeting, close to 40 people attended to help design improvements for the park. The next planning meeting is March 1, 2016. The next community meeting is March 14th at 6pm, location to be announced.

MMSD Greenway Basins
Planning for the basins near 30th & Roosevelt is well underway. Community meetings have influenced the design to include future amenities: walking paths, community gardens, seating areas, possibly athletic fields, etc. Fundraising must be conducted and partners identified to implement the amenities. Construction of the basins will begin in 2016 due to a coordinated effort between MMSD and the City of Milwaukee DPW.
