The City of West Allis invites you to a Highway 100 Revitalization community meeting on Thursday, Oct. 17, from 5:30 - 7 p.m. at Irving Elementary School, 10230 W. Grant St. Learn about input gathered so far and provide additional feedback to shape the master plan for the revitalization of the Highway 100 Corridor.

Stakeholders and community members are welcome and encouraged to attend the meeting. This will be the first of two community meetings that will help to shape the direction of the master plan. 

The City is conducting this study to evaluate the market feasibility of new businesses and to create a long-term development strategy for the properties along the corridor. The study focuses on the 3.25 mile stretch of Highway 100 that falls within the city limits and the surrounding properties. The study area extends from I-94 to the north, Morgan St. to the south, I-41 to the east, and S. 116th St. to the west. 

Gensler, a global architecture firm based in Chicago, was selected by the City to lead the planning and market analysis. At the Oct. 17 community meeting, Gensler will provide:

  •  An overview of the planning process 
  • A summary of initial input gathered from community stakeholders
  • A summary of market analysis findings 
  • An analysis of the current state of the corridor

Meeting attendees will be able to share ideas with members of the planning team and provide additional input on problem areas and potential opportunities. 

Following this meeting, and a second community meeting in November, the City anticipates finalizing a Highway 100 Corridor Study in December 2019. 

This is your chance to provide your feedback in helping to shape the master plan for the revitalization of the Highway 100 Corridor. We hope you join us for this valuable meeting!
