2020 Co:Lab Neighborhoods Announced!

We’re already gearing up for our 2020 Co:Lab program, and with that comes a new set of Milwaukee neighborhoods we’re partnering with!

Our Co:Lab teams will be working to solve unique challenges facing the following three areas of the city:


1. Lindsay Heights/Marketplace Business Improvement District (BID 32) – Marketplace Business Improvement District (BID) 32 was developed to create a viable and sustainable commercial corridor that supports local entrepreneurs, engages current business owners, reduces blight, promotes job growth, advances environmental sustainability and encourages local, regional or national businesses to locate to the community. The BID’s boundaries are North Avenue from 8th to 27th Streets and Fond du Lac Avenue from 17th to 27th Streets.


2.Clarke Square – The mission of Clarke Square Neighborhood Initiative is to improve the neighborhood & benefit community residents. CSNI is responsible for leading & coordinating the continued implementation of the Clarke Square Quality of Life Plan. Clarke Square boundaries are Pierce Street from S Cesar Chavez Dr to S Layton Blvd and S Cesar Chavez Dr from W Greenfield Ave to W Pierce Street.


3. Riverworks – Riverworks is made up of three dynamic organizations working together to positively impact businesses and neighborhood residents in their target areas: Riverworks Development Corporation (RDC), the Riverworks Business Improvement District (BID), and the Harambee Neighborhood Improvement District (NID). A map of the Riverworks BID can be viewed here.

We can’t wait to see all of the great ideas that our new teams generate in 2020. Applications are live now!
