Planning for the Future

The future is here for the City of South Milwaukee. The 2035 Comprehensive Plan has been adopted after months of hard work from Graef, city staff, the Plan Commission, and Downtown Advisory Committee, and with input from hundreds of residents. Copies of the Comprehensive Plan are available for review at City Hall and the South Milwaukee Library. You can also view the plan here. Our promise: We will work the plan, delivering a promising future for South Milwaukee.

Neighborhood Beautification Program Announced

We invite you to join the efforts of the City of South Milwaukee’s Neighborhood Beautification Committee by working with your neighbors to improve the “curb appeal” of your neighborhood block. And look for more information soon on the Mayor’s Choice Awards, given to select program participants who go above and beyond to improve the look of their yards and properties.  Click here to read more about the Neighborhood Beautification Program which includes great discounts and helpful information to get you and your neighbors on your way to better “curb appeal”.

Join a Commission

South Milwaukee is full of smart, passionate people who want to make a difference. One way to do it – step up and be considered for a volunteer board or commission.

The city has more than a dozen of these groups providing oversight and guidance to various city departments and functions, and we’re always looking for new people to provide their expertise in any number of areas.

So if you have a background or interest in libraries, health, law enforcement, public safety or a number of other areas, please consider getting involved! Click here to learn more about joining a commission.
