MISSION of the Beerline Trail Neighborhood Development Project:
To sustain and enrich the lives of people in Harambee and Riverwest by promoting health, well-being and prosperity through increased circulation of resources, voices, ideas, labor, and creativity.
WHAT IS THE BEERLINE TRAIL NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT PROJECT?
The Beerline Trail runs diagonally through the Harambee and Riverwest neighborhoods of Milwaukee along a former railroad right-of-way. Since 2002, the City of Milwaukee and community partners have been working to clear railroad tracks and make the right-of-way accessible to the neighborhood as a connective corridor and green space.
Much has been accomplished – there is a paved trail from N. Bremen Street that runs diagonally to W. Capitol Drive, and there have been many incremental improvements to the trail driven by community members, including public art, seating areas, and many community events and programs on the trail.
Your donation allows us to take this project to the next phase of development which is the Implementation of the Lifeways Plan.
