Make It Work Milwaukee/ Mental Health Task Force Update

The Milwaukee County East/West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study has launched a new website and is holding two initial public meetings – 4/12 in Milwaukee and 4/14 in Tosa. Please see below for details and help spread the word. It is important to have a good turnout from the disability community!


Greetings:
This is an exciting time!
The Milwaukee County East/West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study has launched a new website and is holding two initial public meetings.

  • Tuesday, April 12th, 5–7pm, O’Donnell Park
  • Thursday, April 14th, 5–7pm, Zoofari Conference Center
    Brief presentations at 6pm.
    Scroll down for details.
Visit the new web site here to see details and how BRT operates.

I hope you’ll join me! Your ideas are important.
Here’s why you should attend.

The BRT Feasibility Study is exploring one option that would provide a quick, clean, convenient travel option, unaffected by increasing local traffic congestion and parking challenges.

BRT would connect the region’s two largest job centers, creating a high-quality transit spine across the county from the Lakefront Gateway in downtown Milwaukee (81,000 jobs) to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center in Wauwatosa (16,000 jobs)—a dense corridor of employers, healthcare, destinations, and a diversity of neighborhoods.

  • BRT would provide real access to jobs

  • BRT in other places has spurred $100 million - $5.7 Billion in walkable development and job creation, enhancing the character and vibrancy of neighborhoods along the route

  • BRT would enhance the local bus network and provide a vital regional link for the Streetcar

Can BRT help leverage our recent growth to enhance our quality of life, vibrant neighborhoods and business districts, and economic competitiveness?

I hope to see you there to discuss and fully vet this option! Your input is crucial to a successful BRT project.

Please share this information.

Best!
Kerry
