Menomonee Valley - From the Ground Upis a collaborative effort coordinated by Menomonee Valley Partners and Urban Ecology Center, Inc. in partnership with the City of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin. Through this effort, the Menomonee Valley is coming to life in new ways. We have been working together since 2009 on a series of integrated projects that are:
Creating new access to jobs with an extension of the Hank Aaron State Trail and three bike/pedestrian bridges
Building new opportunities for outdoor recreation by transforming a vacant 24 railyard into Three Bridges Park
Improving environmental conditions, and turn the Menomonee Valley into an outdoor classroom through a third branch of the Urban Ecology Center.
This entire $25 million effort is funding projects and programs through 2017. For more detailed information about the overall effort, specific components and more, visit www.MenomoneeValley-FromtheGroundUp.org.
